On another dating website. She looked at my profile and then she proceeds "saying sorry for the short reply, here's my e-mail, and I 'll check it when I get home from work."

An actual real msg or some kind of fake profile? I'm a bit weary about that it could be a fake one but who knows anymore. Haha

Why are you asking here? Go ask on the other site.
Wait till she replies.
Your complaining that she replied?

OP,
Who knows? Perhaps the profile is real and she was just giving you another way to contact her.

On the contrary, what makes you so "weary" that the profile isn't legit?

I once got a phone number as the first reply with a short message saying to call her.

This is not "normal". "Normal" online dating is one of the following:
1 - She reads the message and never replies. At all. Nothing.
2 - She reads the message, replies once or twice, and then disappears off the face of the earth forever.
3 - She is quick to reply, is having fun messaging back and forth, then when I propose to meet, she stops replying until some time has passed and the "danger" of me asking for a date has subsided. Now they want to message more.

Then I realized I had been doing online dating for too long and what I used to think was normal no longer was. I called her and we have been dating for 4 months.

Go for it.

It's an invitation to contact her at her private email. One possible reason could be that she doesn't visit the online dating site very often, and she finds it more convenient to get email at her private address. One other plausible but unlikely reason could be to get your email and add it to a spam list.

Just email her. Take it a face value. Stop trying to guess when you don't have enough info. People come undone by doing that. If you're paranoid, use the email addy you use for spam or whatever-most people have more than one email addy, and if you don't I suggest you start. It's a good privacy measure.

OP: If you're cautious, you're "wary." Or "leery." Not weary.That means tired.

What can one email hurt? If she asks or your credit card, then you can be weary. And block her.

I keep a separate email address I give out whenever I think there might be some sort of scam pot ential so I won't have to deal with blocking someone from my regular email. The message you got doesn't sound like any of the standard scam messages I've seen, but you never know until you try.

Just slip her a short message to touch base and see what happens. But if she mentions any connection to ghana, bail quickly!

Some people don't like to be checking messages from a dating site at work, but a personal email account is more acceptable. Don't overthink things - you emailed her now wait to see what happens. Worst case scenario you get a bit more spam in your inbox. Such is life.

I keep a separate email address

I strongly suggest this to people all the time. I have kept a throwaway email account that I start out with on I would say 99% of the contacts I have made here on the net.

OP she very well may do the same I give that email addy out to lots and lots of people if I am not going to be on POF for a while. That way people that I chat with know how to get a hold of me.

Good luck

Email her at her private email account. It may be easier or more convenient for her to check her email there.

If it's a pay site, she could be on a free trial run that is about to run out, or she's about to not renew.

I give out my email all the time...its not dangerous to do so...so why not? Its a double stand alone account with no link to things like facebook etc...once I determine he is a wanker, I just delete them off that account and move on.

sorry didn't understand your last post...but I will say that analyzing everything and being too jaded isn't fair to the next girl...some of us are authentic and just want to cut to the chase.
