Hey, Miranda

I liked your photos and enjoyed reading your profile. We actually have things in common (Dive bars, symphony- season ticket holder, Sonoma wine-tasting) and I have never had a cronut. Look at my profile. I’d love to talk to you – if you are comfortable with that.

Hope to hear from you, George

Quelle Surprise: The first three letters are super scams. If one lands in your mail-box – do not pass Go – forward it to the powers that be at the dating site. They may – or may not- act on it. Be Aware and Be Safe.
