Ok, here's the situation. I found this girl on a dating site that has a fairly good matching system that I trust to be accurate. She's attractive and seems to convey a pretty good personality in her profile. We started talking a month ago and I don't really feel like it's going anywhere, but yet she continues to reply. Slowly but surely, this conversation has dragged out.
My online game kinda sucks but I'm pretty good with women in person, using the MM model. I'm actually "gaming" a few girls in person and having a blast. But I can't help but think about this one that's online and lives near me.
Here's the conversation thus far, I made my messages bold and hers italicized. Any advice?

Dude, we would totally mesh! After reading your profile, you seem like just my type. But I'm so picky, so that cannot be! We all have flaws, and I'd like to get to know you better and learn what yours are. Haha
Forgive me but that's my "10pm and I have to be up at 5am" email attempt at being clever. Lol =P
But seriously, I'd be honored to get to know you better and see how we click.

Lol clever enough. We'll see!

Wow, I really meant to respond sooner, I just stay so busy at work. ><
Anyway, out of curiosity and to jump right into things, tell me what you think about life. O_o *gasp* I know right, random question. :P
AAaaaand, being that you're into psychology, why do you think I'd start off with a question like that? What could I possibly gain? Why would I want to know? (obviously these last few are rhetorical questions, but you already knew that) ;P
Anyway, answer that question and I may get to know you further. ^_^

I think life is simpler than we make it a lot of the time. I think that people spend a lot of it trying to figure it out. I think the point is to be happy with ourselves, explore as much as we can, learn as much as we can, and connect with as many people as we'd like. Life is beautiful, difficult, vast. I could probably go on, but that's enough of an answer for that one for now haha. I pretty much just said what came to my mind first.

Hmm, not your typical answer, but that's not necessarily bad.
However, I believe we actually choose the lives we're in; to experience certain events, even those that are unpleasant. The important people in our current lives were also likely an important part of our other lives. Our interactions with interesting people (like the one were experiencing now, hehe) are happening because we chose for it to happen previously; kind of a mix between fate and free will. But yet we are constantly shaping our own reality... if that makes sense.
I do believe in reincarnation, energy, chakras, etc. These are topics I'm pretty passionate about and could discuss in great depth. But that's better left for phone convos, or if we jive... in person. Maybe. =)
What would you like to know about me?
PS: My real name is Kevin Smith. Props if you've heard of or watched his movies, and you're AWESOME if you like them as much as I do, haha. ^_^

Haha yeah, I like his movies, and I know another Kevin Smith, too.
Yes, choosing is important and a lot of people forget that.
I'm on a quick get-messages-answered mission right now, so I can go into better detail and give a more adequate response another time. I always hate the question and answer game anyway.

Ugh, agreed. I'm still new to the whole online dating thing, not sure I really like it. We should get a couple friends together and hang out. I work 60+ hours a week though, so sat/sun are better for me.

I give it a lot of time before I meet anyone from online. Having said that, maybe some time in the future lol.
May 22, 2012 – 9:40pm
Aww, you're shy, that's kinda cute. :P
I understand though, the couple girls I met online ended up being nuckin futs and only wanting sex. But, so far you seem a bit more sane than they were, albeit a little more reserved as well. I take it you've had similar experiences. lol
On a side note, something my sister noticed on your profile that kinda worries me...
It says you're a virgin. I mean no offense, I just hope there's not a weird reason for that. O_o
May 29, 2012 – 3:03pm
Yeah, I'm a virgin, but there's no cause for concern. It's nowhere near a fatal condition and is really the result of my choices and the sub-par quality of wooing these days. I'll be okay.
