I value respect and elegance, both in our date and in our correspondence. I don't meet everybody seeking a moment with me; being polite and telling me a few words about yourself will for sure make a good first impression, and catch my attention!
I am rarely available for last minute dates, so a few days' notice is ideal. My mailbox can be sneaky and send my messages to your spam folder; don't forget to check them. I will get back to you as soon as possible with an encrypted, secure e-mail address, but feel free to reach out again if you don't hear from me.
