20 emails though doesn't trump one real life date in terms of knowing if "thats the one". For me, what on-line does is it requires women to put forth some effort and to reveal what they are looking for up front. When he and I finally got together in the so-called “real world,” we each were as expected. Having said all that: If someone were to ask if I would recommend getting together with a person they’ve met online, I’d urge caution; tell them to spend lots of time exchanging correspondence before the face-to-face.
