Re: [New-and-not-so-new-in-Adelaide] Not a Dating Site

Dear Eric

Even if you wash regularly, I'm afraid you're just not my type! I'm very 
sexist when it comes to dating, I'm afraid.

Still, many thanks for the laugh, while at the same time, thanks to Skye 
for so gently addressing an important issue.

May we all find what we're looking for at this meetup, without badgering 
others who are looking for something different :)
