Hi Arlyn- yes I am confirming that I will put my membership on hold so that Martin and I can get to know each other more.  The qualities I like in Martin so far are that he is attentive, respectful, courteous ( opened doors for me), and engaging.  He was candid with his thoughts and feelings without being overbearing or “pushy”.  Overall he was easy to talk to and was kind.  In regards to my experience with you Arlyn-you have been easy to reach and respond quickly.  I feel heard by you and this match has been the best so far!  It is not easy to find a man in my age range with children around the same age-let alone someone who lives nearby!  I know Martin and I are not a match regarding formal education-but he certainly has a lot of life experience-so we will have to wait and see how that plays out.  Other wise I think you found many of the qualities I was hoping for in a man.  Hope this helps-take good care—JoAnn
