Lines that Make Me Want to Become a Cat Lady | by Vanessa Peterson

Howdy. I have muscular calves. No offense—you are
beautiful, look like a treasure, perfect combination
of sexy and cute. I’ve always had an eye on the finer

things in life, obviously had to message you. Let’s drink
beer and eat ice cream (I don’t drink hot beverages —
that’s the devil’s temperature). I wear glasses, have an

accent, nerdy as it can possibly get. Not really good
at talking about myself, but I’m a real person. Not everybody
can take care of a treasure, but I can show you my

excellent massage skills. Would you be interested in
a married guy? Press 0 to be disconnected or enter
