What kind of relationship are you looking for here?Page 4 of 4    (1, 2, 3, 4)
I'm upfront about why I'm here...for the forums. However I do welcome friends to chat via the messaging. My grassroots movement to abolish fake wood paneling on vehicles and slow computers is gaining momentum....muhahaha!

I am looking for a "real relationship"
Well as I am looking for a serious relationship, I believe we should search to quickly stop what could be considered as a lie. For example the picture ( age, profession etc...) I posted, shows me younger, the best thing will be to present myself in light of my real charming body and show my "friend" who I fundamentally look like, and maybe instead of being charmed by the picture, anything else will help to solidify the relationship. This will avoid false compromise. In education, there is a problem to transfer the face to face class into hybrid classes and teachers found that the lack of teachers' emotion in the teaching accounted for 15-20% of the learning so in our case I don't think that those who are serious about dating or rather serious relationship should wait to have a coffee or a dinner.

There is no set answer to how fast you should meet. In the real world, I like to scope out a person before even saying hello to them. Unfortunately, most people's profiles don't allow that to happen because they don't have any clue on how to properly present themselves to the world. So I need to exchange emails with them for a considerable amount of time but some people are horrible at that. I think that probably goes for those wanting to meet in under 2 weeks. They want to rely on their animal magnetism instead of intellectual exchanges or a show case of their writing skills and wit. I, on the other hand, need to see that element. For some people, it takes time to come out of their shell. I give them that time. What's the hurry, what's the rush? I have yet to meet people here that didn't want to meet me in person. And, that increases after we've spent considerable time exchanging emails. I use the exchange of emails to weed people out not as a medium to ask them to meet for coffee. Meeting in person for dates is a waste of time to me if I don't know with 99% certainty that we'll end up dating. Of course, I'm not the typical rush to sex mindless drone that's commonly seen on POF. I find the mind and the soul much sexier than anything else. Seems like I'm in the minority here. For me, I don't have to exchange any emails to spot a fake profile or people not serious about meeting in person. That's easy and a trivial exercise in pattern recognition.
