this is my first time posting on this section, i've posted in other sections on the board. i'm a single, black female in my mid-30's and childless. I decided to register on yahoo personals about two weeks ago but didn't upload a picture or pay for a subscription or do voice mail.. I kept getting a yahoo mesenger sent to me the following week and last week from a guy. I'm new to computers and didn't realize he was from yahoo singles responding to my add. to make a long story short, i responded to him wednesday nite last week and thursday nite last week. the guy came on wed. with one screen name and then on thursday had another screen name? i asked him why the two differ names and he gave me some fake answer. after posting back and forth for 15 minutes, i asked him to describe what he looked like. he didnt want to tell me anything, he asked for my number and for me to upload a pic and then he will upload one. I told him he must be ashamed or have something to hide and not to contact me anymore.
he sent me a message saturday last week with a 3rd screen name. Earlier that day the librarian at the local library told me how to go in yahoo messenger and code him ignore but i found a better way using the invisible mode. just as i was doing this , he sent me about two messages!
yesterday a man sent me a long message describing his looks, like, wants and hobbies, etc. I responded and he responded back this morning with a bunch of questions. Like what is my philosophy, what kind of people i like, am i a follower or leader, etc,., etc.
eHarmony , i went on earlier last week but didn't pay. they have sent me about 10 matches so far. they want 49.99 for one month or 100 plus for 3 or six months...they're very expensive. all the men that responded were very tall like 5'11 and up (i'm 5'1") and all professional men/christian.
I need someone who has experience with computer dating/surfing/friendship to give me some tips/advice .
should i upload a pic? I dont have any current good ones and dont know how to work my scanner.
am i hurting my chances not wanting to talk to men with kids?
how soon should i meet or give my number , if at all?
how did the guy from yahoo find my screen name since it does not show on my profile ( i have one screen name for yahoo groups and one for personals)?
he told me that he was not a member on yahoo personals but i couldn't find him in the member directory under the three names he used?
should i call my new friend from the pay phone so he will not know my home number in case he proves to be a jerk (most people have caller I.D.) once he gives me his number?
would you think something is wrong with a man who's in his early 40's , never-married and no kids?
thank you ladies.
