I'm a firm beleiver in the fact that men should be the ones doing the hunting. However, with that said, I'm in New Zealand, not a lot of chaps on this site probably set their searches to include this part of the world, even if they are open to LDR. So unless I initiate they likely won't stumble upon my profile. I've been here, maybe two years now and can count on one hand the views/message/emotigram I've recieved from men overseas.
So my plan, for what its worth, is send the "hello" emote and if they reply, they reply, if they don't, so be it. How can they pursue if they don't know what's out there?
