I finally responded because he was so persistent
When I initially joined the site, I had actually just looked at it as a way of killing time during my work day. But, after being a member for quite a while, one day I kept receiving smiles from someone who wasn't yet a paid member. I finally responded because he was so persistent. Not only that, I found out he only lived 20 minutes away from me. 18 months later he still makes my dimples dance and my "heart smile".
