Maybe you'll engage in a steady stream of short-term, non-committed, sexually-driven encounters as a few of my friends did.
Mystery, and not knowing whether or not the person you’re talking to is interested in you (at least for the first five minutes, or the first two or three emails), is a very good thing.
Not less important is the fact that there are many more men looking on the 'net than women.
Many women I talked to have told me that during the first weekend after they placed their ad they got about a hundred (yes, HUNDRED) replies.
With that volume of emails to browse and weed through, most women don't really have the time to browse men's ads!
They assume (and rightfully so) that all the men worth contacting have already sent them a reply.
