Bonsoir madame, lors de mes recherches j'ai visité votre profil que je
trouve super cool et très attirant, votre fiche a retenu toute mon
attention car vous correspondez bien à mes attentes. Je suis un nouvel
inscrit et j'ai tenté de joindre une photo mais la quantité ou le format du
fichier est insupportable donc la photo n'a pu être prise en compte par le
site par-contre je peux vous envoyer quelques photo de moi par mail et
pourquoi pas profiter pour faire connaissance par échange de mails car la
distance qui nous sépare ne nous laisse pas vraiment de choix. Amicalement
