I don't see anything about TrueBrit asking for advice on bad relationships...he keeps 'falling into'? Everything he has done his whole life?
Is the 'antiquated English-speak' throwing you for a loop?
TrueBrit is a 'gentleman'. They are few and far between these days.
He wants an intelligent woman. Seems they are also few and far between.
He also doesn't want a relationship built solely on lust. (*sigh* once again...few and far...)
TrueBrit, you are a lovely man...a lovely human. You don't use cheesy pick-up lines.
Hunny...you don't need to.
This make-believe assertion that a "gentleman" would never use them is just simply false. The person that doesn't risk anything, will never gain anything.
The drunk who staggers over mumbling about how you must have 'fallen from Heaven" though....not appealing.
I do not wish to introduce myself to female persons, as a person who quite wrongly believes, that he has the right to wander into their lives, and spout improprieties. I would much rather have a genuine conversation, un laden by that sort of failure of manners and dignity, than start one based purely on some stereotypical expectation, which in and of itself represents an erosion of all the rules of decorum and good conduct, which I was bought up to uphold.
