About Me:

“I don’t really have much to say about me but its very wonderful when we have a wonderful feeling about life and the people around us irrespective of who they are and where they are from. I am a relaxed and more relaxed man to be with ,easy going, open minded and friendly man..who likes to see the bright side of everything I do in life. am fun to be with , very humble, friendly, understanding ,easy going , open minded, Hard working, honest, respectful, caring, loyal, romantic & like being spontaneous & adventurous, intelligent, fun-loving & young at heart, understanding, great communicator & good companion. Relaxed and relaxing to be with. I have good sense of humor and lovely integrity to love and to be loved. I am a very passionate man who loves to put his woman first in everything he does.

I have so much love, respect and trust for that woman of my heart and will also treat her like that woman she has always wanted to be because she is my number one priority. I love the responsibilities of my daily obligations, and so willing to go into a long term relationship with that woman my heart calls for; no matter the distances between us and am very willing to work at relationship and also to ensure the best of future together with someone that enjoys the things that nature has in stock for us.

First Date: looking for someone that is kind, caring, selfless, considerate and thoughtful, romantic and funny and loves to have fun, then maybe we should get to know each other better. I’m looking for a mate, a partner for life. How ever you’d like to put it, that’s what I’m here for. Sorry if it sounds like I’m being so direct, however I’m learning more about this site thing all the time and would rather cut to the chase and let others know exactly where I stand. So now that I got that off my chest, I feel better. lol That’s who I am. A very good communicator. You’ll never have to guess where I stand or where you stand with me, you’ll know it. “I say what I mean and I do what I say.” Al Pacino said those words in “Heat” and those are the words I live by. So if you’d like to learn more about me and let me learn more about you..I all for that “

I did not edit this profile but I did question the syntax and grammar. I am not surprised by typos because many men did not have to type memos etc for their jobs, so typing can be awkward. After a few messages back and forth I gave him my email address, he sent me a nice email signed Paul Wxxdxxxxh bigheartpaul@xxx but the content and syntax /grammar did not improve. It was still very awkward.

My new habit on meeting someone on line (you could do it for other meet ups if you can get their photo) is to click on their photo on the website and copy it to your hard drive then copy it to “Google Images” and hit search. Normally if someone has been on the Internet anywhere with a photo it can find them. In this case two websites popped up with info on this man's photo with different names and not complimentary comments. Here are the sites: http:/www.yourittoday.com and www.delphifaq.com you may want to bookmark these sites for future use. It is not uncommon for scammers to steal someones photo and use it unscrupulously without the real person being aware of it. I learned this watching "Catfish" on MTV - thank you Nev

Yes, I did report him to POF and since Markus Frind, the owner/developer doesn’t like potential scammers he will be removed but more than likely he will pop up on another site. Keep your eyes out for this guy! I don’t mean that everyone who does not use colloquial (everyday conversation) English could be a scammer but be wary, most educated people from other countries speak and write English better than we do.

Another scammer BITES THE DUST I hope! Now I don’t have to do a background check on him but would have before I had him pick me up at my house for a date.

Next posting will have our email conversations so you can see what I mean by style of writing.
