I'm not good with dates, never had one haha.

You sound beautiful. Extremely beautiful. I’ve never played Fallout I play mostly survival horror games but I’d play fallout with you. I’m not good with dates either. But I’d for sure date you. You sound wonderful. I used to dance. I love dancing. I mainly did jazz, Afro jazz, lyrical, modern, hip hop, etc. but I love to dance. Don’t do it much anymore. But wow ginger and blue eyes I wish I looked like that.
