Free advice to dudes and dude-presenting folks: don't follow-and-DM ladies and lady-presenting folks with yer zero-post account. You gotta make some public posts (yes, even if it feels like no one is listening to you yet) to show you're a real human being. Then you participate in a *public* conversation. Then maybe you can DM.
(j/k never DM)
I semi-regularly get follow-and-DM from accounts like https://mas.to/@Rancher99 . Do I just attract old farts with oddly similar approaches (DM is almost always just a minimal "hi there" or similar)? Does everybody get those?

I *never* get those posts, and I think it is likely because my avatar does not portray a woman's kind-looking face.

@gamehawk How could you not figure out he's a good guy? His profile even says he's easy going and down to earth.
