To constitute an offer, the offeror must intend to create a legal obligation, or he must appear to intend to create a legal obligation. This intent can be shown by conduct. For example, when one party signs a written contract and sends it to the other party, this action is obviously an offer to enter into a contract on the terms of the writing. Again, the offeror must intend to create a legal obligation. No contract comes into being when an offer is made jokingly, or under any other circumstances that would cause a reasonable person to believe there was no intent to enter into a binding agreement.
