Anyone who says online dating is painless and easy never tried it; between the slew of online dating sites, filtering through potential daters' profiles and flirting with perfect strangers via IM and e-mail, things can get a little hairy.
As a woman, the immediate reaction is “he’s a creeper! That photo in the mirror where the camera’s showing, or that pic where your ex is cropped out, or that blurry shot of you drinking beers with your buddies is not going to get you noticed. If three email exchanges have passed and there’s no mention of a date, I will assume that you’re: A) Looking for a buddy, B) don’t actually want to date, just want an ego boost or a distraction or something or C) are hiding something. Skip the email banter and get straight to the part where you make a date with me. If you do perchance send a message after the 17th viewing of my profile, I will probably be wary. It’s nice if a guy is interested in what I think about the latest episode of “Breaking Bad” (haven’t seen it yet), but I’m not particularly invested in exchanging emails until I know if we have chemistry in person.Wang soon returned the favour, sending a picture of his friend taken from when he was in the military.The two were pretty impressed by each other that Lili suggested they chat naked.We say this, because according to Chinese news blog China SMACK it actually happened. Reportedly, a 57-year-old man called Old Wang (a clear full name purposely withheld, we think) met a girl named Lili in an online chatroom.
