OMG... I am always wondering about that myself.. I think you are right.. These guys have these alert notifications that they program into their computer and when Sally or Joan logs on bingo the alert goes off and they know and log on.

It happens to me all the time. This guy emailed me a few times and then I emailed him back.. A few times he chatted online with me so I engaged thinking that he would ask me to meet. Some never do but then when I log in at any given time of day this one guy is right there online. I log out and he logs out and on and on.. I almost felt like it was stalking but I think it is as you say. these guys have these alerts. Now the guy I knew is in IT so he knows all about that stuff so it wouldnt surprise me if he is a mastermind at this. He must also do it with other women..

So yeah there is something to what you are saying as I am experience that myself.. Now I havent logged in for two days to the OLD and going to see if this guy I know bothers to write me an email or get in touch with me.. Lets see if he notices I wasnt on. I am going to stay off for a week and see what happens.

Of course...that's exactly how it happens. You don't have to be IT in order to stay current with your emails through smartphones. It's quite easy.

Yup they do, and you can set up alerts to your phone as well if you wish.

I cant help but wonder why they do it . The only thing I have experienced is that alot of men want their ego boosted but they have no intention of every meeting a woman. maybe its women also but since I am a woman I will speak from that view.

At times in past when I was new to OLD I would always have a few guys that wanted to chat online.. stupid me thinking that after we chatted he would then ask to meet. Some would never commit to even a coffee date but then when they saw me online it was okay lets chat.. I finally got that some of them were just there to soothe their ego online and whoever engaged in it (stupid me at times) there they were wanting to chat away. So I am assuming they knew when the regular chatters were on there they were..

I finally got smart and turned my chat light off and I dont do it anymore.. I had this one guy kept bother me to chat.. I finally told him to bug off and I am not on a dating site to chat. i am here to date .. He kind of ignored me and kept up at it.. I didnt block him yet but I have blocked him from my yahoo in which he had my email address. I have blocked others so he is next (lol)

I finally googled him to pieces and I find out that he is 99% married... but stupid me didnt even think of that. Live and Learn..

also, if you exchange personal email like yahoo or gmail, if the guy is stupid, he has his full name that appears in your inbox -

I know what you mean and get this one.. when this guy who I assume is married did not have his name displayed on his yahoo address I started to get suspicious.. He told me one time to call him and I did and it went right to voicemail.. He called me back and i said so I couldnt make out your last name on voicemail.

I myself do not give out a lot of information until we meet.
