I'm thinking your English grammar may be part of the issue.

April Fools?

But if not try opening your message with just business, when you want to shoot, what you want to shoot, where you want to do it and what the compensation is.

To OP: I think its a complete disaster- too forthcoming and your port intro is alarming. You been 8 years on mm holy mother Teresa. I thought you get it by now.

This kinds of sums it up.

You've been on here for several years.  Time to stop pretending that you don't take this seriously.

I can't tell from your profile and opening line if you are for real or not! besides I'm not a vegetarian.
Don't say I have nice anything. say I fit what you had in mind for your project very nicely.
Again are you for real or is it a prank profile? That is your 1st problem.

I spat coffee all over my monitor (tea actually - I'm English) when I got to the 'GORGEOUS TITS' line. smile

I love this in his profile too:

'I don't really know what I'm doing with a camera.  If you're okay with that let me know and maybe we can shoot. '

And; 'MUAs that are good at 'Angry Birds''.

I love his style.

Sometimes on here it's hard to tell...

I've read things and thought, "That's funny!" And then realized the person wasn't kidding. :X

I think it's mainly because you don't know the difference between "their" and "they're". Most models are grammar Nazi's..
