Just got your msg, not sure how the "just saw your profile" thing works, I personally do not get on fb often Monday 9:58am Larry Bettino
Hello Jeri, So good to hear from you, i have actually been looking out for your response and i must let you know that you have put a smile on my face by writing to me now. I came across your profile, somehow on the right hand side of my page (people you may know) and i got attracted and that was how i sent you a message. we don't have friends in common. I'm still very much interested in you and i believe there is no harm in trying. I am a Civil Engineer by profession and i live in Austin, Texas. I'm a widowed and a father to a lovely daughter. I must let you know that i die slowly of loneliness. I desire a real woman in my life to be a friend, companion, soul mate, someone i could share my thoughts, ideas, knowledge and feelings with. I just want to love and be loved again. this will make me complete and happy again. Tell me more about you. Are you actually single? do you have kids? what are you doing for a living? Are you open to a relationship now, i hope to hear from you soon. Larry.
