It's similar to what I get as a performer on stage. It's both empowering and vulnerable at the same time. So what is intriguing to you about that All of those thngs absolutely, the risk making and taking. Seriously I was a serioius relationship guy for so long, I didn't know I had it in me.

Yes because you'll be your authentic self When I finished school, I was obsessed with getting to know myself, my nature, what my tendencies were. I read a lot which helped. But ultimately you have to experience things for yourself and couple that with what you read, you form some sort of profile of yourself. Thanks so much for taking the time to leave us a review, we appreciate your support as we grow! So let me start off bu saying that I almost got scammed on this app.
We all know why we are here which cuts small talk down by a lot. One of the first people i found and began talking to was a scammer, however i was able to handle that situation on my own. I messaged the staff about it and they were quick, responsive, helpful, and nice to me the entire process. I asked how to report fake users and they told me kindly.
The supoort staff is easily the best on any app I have dealt with and they all deserve the world. The ONLY reason I only gave 4 as opposed to 5 is because the app population does not appear to be dense yet, however that is only a matter of time. Just keep a weathered eye out for those who want to scam you! Keep it up devs and crew! I cant wait to add that 5th star!
