Alright….so he responded.
“Hey Lori! 🙂
Well, I must say I was pretty shocked by this email as I didn’t mean to come across this way at all. 🙂 However, I appreciate your honesty and unfortunately that’s the price we’re paying for not actually being able to meet in person.
Anyway, about my photos….I would just like to say that I strongly feel that you’ve gotten the wrong impression of me by all means. What you explained is nothing like who I am at all. I’m the youngest of two older brothers and I also have a younger sister. All growing up my parents have fostered manners, respect for others, and being humble and I feel they’ve done a great job with all of us. I’m really a down to earth, easy going guy and a really funny one at that too. I feel I have a kind and gentle heart and when I’m in love I love. I’m very passionate and also a strong romantic. I totally understand what you’re saying about that ‘other guy’ stereotype and I agree. However, I would just ask that we’d just take the time to get to know each other. I felt a pretty strong connection after reading all about you and I wouldn’t have emailed you if I didn’t feel that. You have a sincere presence about you which I really like.
I changed the “false” to my name. I guess Yahoo! changed that to protect my name or something. Or maybe I should just start going by the nickname “False”. haha!
Please think about it and I hope you do give us the chance to build something here. Even if it’s just a great friendship.
Thanks Lori! :)”
The guy lives in New Mexico…any harm in building a friendship?
