    I got talking to a woman on pof.

    Exchanged phone numbers and started texting. Found it a bit bizarre to talk to some one I'd never met by text. We met up at a pub quiz night this week and had a great time. She is good looking, slim and seems genuine. I am cautiously optimistic as she's seems to be making a lot...
