Question
Hello,
 This girl has expressed interest in my profile in this dating website; already I have sent her a message   .As I have never tried internet dating before:
1-HOW LONG SHOULD I EXCHANGE MESSAGES WITH HER ON-LINE BEFORE I ASK FOR HER NUMBER AND ASK HER OUT?
2-AND ALSO HOW OFTEN  SHOULD I SEND HER MESSAGES?

Thanks!

Answer
after a couple of days, ask her for her personal email so you don't have to go on the site to communicate with her; after a couple more days of that, tell her you'd like to share real voice; once on the phone, if the call goes well, ask to meet her..as to how often, depends..if she answers quickly, you can respond quickly; go at whatever pace she appears comfortable with..

Life experience can really be the only teacher in this area; however going through the experience is not enough. What is necessary is a real awareness, sensitivity to, and reflection upon what has happened, what has been lost, what has been gained. Getting beyond one's own insecurities and subjectivities, and seeing the experience in the context of the bigger picture, are essential stepping stones to learning and loving...ps..azure announces CT matchmaking service..for more, go to wishuponastar-ct.com
