Hey everyone, I'm flying to the UK to sweep Rose right off her pretty little feet. You're all invited to the wedding, of course. Because if it wasn't for this site, we never would have found eachother.

She’s pretty.
But she has a large Adam’s Apple for such a petite woman.

It might be a good move, considering all the freebees the UK government doles out.

Dear rosembiaa@yahoo.co.uk,

I do not correspond with people who cannot capitalize propery.
I refuse to have anything to do with folks who are unable to speak English correctly.

In closing, I have been known to shoot on sight individuals who use the non-word “alot”.

Best regards,

humblegunner

Send her this pic and claim it's a self-portrait. If she says you're cute, be afraid, be very afraid. :-)

It would never work. The whole relationship would be one big correction.

Whoa, whoa, whoa...back off, already, Rose is MINE. I’ve only had to send her 10K to “resolve” some immigration matter. But, true love is worth any amount and Rose and I have it. So, leave Rose alone or I’ll be forced to hunt you down.

Tell her that you’ll be happy to begin a new life with her, but you require money to be wired to you so that you know she’s real and that you can trust her.
