Thank You, Captain Obvious

One of the guys I haven't mentioned that emailed me recently has a line his his profile that says, "I don't have much of a poker face so I'm a pretty easy person to read- and I follow my heart...So I'd describe myself as Captain Obvious."  Ok.  I prefer a man who divulges too much rather than one who 'withholds the truth.'  Newsflash to you all:  withholding the truth is the same as lying .  But that's a rant for another ...
