Internet daters must work with mere words to create the sexual tension that’s part of regular dating.And they have to craft those words entirely in the dark.CAPE TOWN – Three men and two women, all Nigerians allegedly involved in an online dating scam, have absconded, a court in Cape Town heard on Wednesday.
Among the five who absconded is the “kingpin” in the scam, who fled to the United Arab Emirates, the court heard.
You need to realize that some people can take an honest answer involving a sexually provocative question out of context because such an answer is word-searchable on most systems.
For an example of the ramifications, consider this Q&A found on one service: Question: “What is my favorite indoor activity?
We aren’t just talking about essay questions, like “What do you think is sexy?
” or “Define sexy,” but multiple-choice questions with available answers that run the gamut from sexually neutral to unmistakably sexually provocative.
Some of these answers are pretty funny in the context they’re placed, but remember that some people doing word searches don’t necessarily view your answers in the same context.
