When did you become intimidating? Dating sites are great, I get told by every date that doesn't want a second date that I am the nicest man they ever met!?! All life is there...and we are part of it. Next time I'm around and you're free I will buy you dinner, we have never done that, kids also welcome as I'm not really a date and sitters are hard to find :-)
