Upfront about Preferences
I want to congratulate you on running a great website.
I have found a very compatible partner through the site and we've been together for about 1 1/2 years now.
Both of us were very upfront about our preferences and dislikes so were able to both take the first steps and resolve any issues as they have arisen while also maintaining our identities.
Thanks, and good luck to those continuing the search.
