This series of four studies examines the online dating process, similarities and differences between online and traditional dating, and the impact of emotionality and self-disclosure on first (e-mail) impressions of a potential partner.
Results indicate that the amount of emotionality and self-disclosure affected a person’s perception of a potential partner.
Low levels of self-disclosure were generally preferred in choosing for the fictitious dater, although these preferences differed by gender, education, and ethnic background.
I don't think it's about the chase, I think it's not knowing who to keep talking to and who to let go.
Remember that we are the largest free online dating service, so you will never have to pay a dime to meet your soulmate. I told him I was very interested, would love to visit, and we continued talking for about a week. I'm really hurt over it and I don't get it, but oh well.
I've opened up conversations with woman, several conversations with women have been very informative and encouraging. Because they are not sure of your tactics, because they think that you are a player, and idiot, an nice guy, a pushy guy, a great guy that will not give them the time of day. But all of a sudden, this dude stopped messaging me. The only thing I can gather from that is: He's just not that into me. I still try not to judge all guys because of what a few guys do. If you do the run of the mill "hey", "how are you", "how was your Friday", etc etc. If you are different you will get a response and it peaks curiosity for more!
Traditional dating relationships that might take months to develop in the real world, take weeks or even days online.
Much has been written about cyber-dating, but little research has been done.
