Interesting online dating article

http://www.msnbc.msn.com/id/10098349/

This article basically says two online dating Web sites--Yahoo! Personals and Match.com--have their employees post pictures on the site, and just when a customer's subscription is about to expire, the dating sites' employees with profiles send a wink or email to the subscriber to keep them interested.

I prefer field work. Online you don't know who's who or what's what? Play it safe... and do the work.....YOURSELF!

I've read somewhere that Internet dating (or any kind of dating service) takes out an important step in finding someone. Something like, when people put themselves out on a "menu", the whole process becomes easier because you already know the other person is single and looking. But on the other hand, a really important part of finding someone is getting the courage to approach them without knowing anything about them--even if they are attached.

Apparently, some behaviorial psychologists will say this is a crucial step and taking it out takes out an important part of the courtship process.

You also don't get the chance to read the person physically, or shall I say "body language" - that's extremely crucial. For instance, there's a girl I know, when I first met her I introduced myself just like I would to anyone else and shook her hand. This was the killer, it really was, because most girls simply touch your hand, they don't really shake it, it gives a sense of being very vague and not specific, but on the other hand this girl gave me a very firm hand shake, not yank my hand off firm, but firm enough for me to lift up my brow in curiosity, lol. That's just one example, another one was a date I went on a year or so ago, and this girl and I went out to eat, haha, half way through the end of the meal she starts rubbing her leg on the inside of mine, euhm... but that's enough for you to read that something is going on in her head, something you'll never get online. It's all about that natraul physical/mental connection you make w/ the other person. Something that nothing else will ever be able to replace.

Hope that all made sense?
