Two things to consider:
first: in this site there is not any offensive emo
second:the most people subscribes in this site has a main interest: to meet people in order to develop a relationship as a friend or like a partner of life.
With the above consideraration in mind, I think that there is no problem in start a contact with somebody who seems like a nice person. Sometimes our fears do not let us to reach that we really wants in Life.If you do not do the first movement how he could know how wonderful person you are?
Let go for him!
