Meeting Women On Twitter

A long time ago, getting a partner involved bit more than clubbing a lady on the top and dragging her by the hair back to the cave. My, how times have changed. In a string called Meeting WOMEN IN 2012 , today we’ve a glance at how men are actually meeting women, what’s changed, what hasn’t and why.
Of all the other ways to meet up women – OkCupid nowadays, Match, Facebook – no digital medium is more intriguing (or strange) than Twitter. The idea that two different people can conduct a flirtation in a 140-character public message is something not George Jetson may have imagined. Yet here we have been in 2012. Men and women are realizing you could find other ways to meet people. You should think beyond your box just.
I experienced this firsthand whenever a gentleman we’ll call Jason started tweeting at me. Everything innocently began very. An article have been read by him I wrote and wished to compliment me on the piece. “I loved your article on ponies. How did you obtain your start as a writer?” I realized immediately his tweeting me had less related to his appreciation of this article and more along with his appreciation of my appearance. Nonetheless, he didn’t seem creepy or weird, so I back tweeted. Besides, I reasoned, it’s just Twitter It isn’t such as a personal Facebook message or a contact, which would feel a lot more invasive. Tweets are designed to be a type of public conversation, so though I’d have already been hesitant to email a man I didn’t know, I was OK tweeting.
When Flirting On Twitter FAILS
So I back tweeted, “Thanks! All my friends explained I should be considered a writer, day therefore i just started writing one.” And from there our slow Twitter flirtation began. He’d comment on most of my tweets and articles almost, and I’d respond with a many thanks and a sassy comment back always. When I tweeted a pic of my new shoes, he was quick to tweet back “very sexy!” I would comment on his latest dissection of a band or album (“You’re missing the true genius of The Darkness”) or his excitement over his newest pair of Converse (“What’s next? Gold lame Converse?”). Soon enough he was emailing me directly instead of tweeting.
Though we were engaged in some kind of flirtation, I hardly took it seriously. After all, he lived in Seattle. He would ask me when I was coming to visit and he once told me he was coming to New York for work, but it never happened. Perhaps if he actually made it to New York and we hit it off, ours would be a love story made in social media heaven.
But he didn’t, nor did he seem like he was going to do anything remotely proactive. He started to seem like another person who spends more time online than offline, more interested in a virtual fantasy So I looked at our conversation as more of chatting with a fan and nothing more. But when he sent me a message saying “Happy Valentine’s Day!” along with a picture of flowers, I knew it had been time to stop tweeting fully. I’m all for chatting, nevertheless the direct messages with someone I didn’t even know and was never more likely to meet were a waste of time. Though he kept tweeting and emailing at me, I stopped responding. I’m uncertain what his intentions truly were, but, frankly, I stopped caring.
