Does it happen always at the same point?

I know as soon as I compliment the person on their delicious looking, perky, boobies the e-mail stops dead

That might have been me.
Sometimes I get up nerve to try again, post a profile and then either change my mind or get some creepy email and quickly delete it.

:)

sorry

(going a bit off topic, bit I think its also a bit pertinent)

A friend of my has a theory for the real world -

"a relationships lasts a solid 14 months" - he says that biologocally - we are wired up to get attracted long enough to someone else in order to create babies - and then if there is no baby - the bond sort of (bio - chemically speaking anyway ) disolves

Maybe everything just happens faster in cyberspace. Attraction - love icon - boredom - bye

Then there was the one who claimed he owned a well-known restaurant/bar/hotel (uh huh).


You didnt even let that test of reality unfold?

OOOOoooooops.

YOU may have missed out on a great thing, by simply "not believing"; and without due diligence!?

Note to self and others: Keep unbelievably great, or non mediocre, things about yourself under wraps.




There are Plenty of Fish in the sea though


Lotsa parasites too.

And crabs!

The "fizzle" especially makes me shake my head in semi-wonder when it is the man who initiates contact and keeps it going until . . . nothing, nada, no "Sorry, guess I am not interested after all." I kinda think that in these cases, my disinterest shows and they pick up on it.

But I recently contacted a man who WAS very excited. He lived in a city where a relative lives and asked me when I was going to visit. After a few days of emails, poof! Ah, come on! I am a mature woman and all I want is a "good-bye"--I am mature enough to say "this isn't working," but I guess it is too much to expect others to do the same.

I'm curious, how did you know he was lying about this? Was the place well known enough to have famous owners of whose identities you were aware of?

I just get bored very quickly; after 2/3 emails- I'll totally know if there's "enough" there to go further with it. Most of the time, there's not. Nothing to do with "greener grass' just, looking for someone who's more suitable for me.


I agree, but if there have been a few emails, I feel that it is good form to let the other person know that you are terminating the conversation.
