Actually from what I observed there are many ladies (not sure for guys) who are not serious in those online apps as their profile lacks information like hobbies etc and they doesn't seem to be online often.

Some might have create an account for fun or have abandoned their accounts....

I think scanty details could be an indication that these ladies are not serious ..... maybe looking for NSA relationships ....  >:(

Finally I got some messages on OKCupid.

The first one is a lady from Taiwan who just came to sg to work. However I have some hesitations proceeding as she might have no intentions to stay in Singapore for prolonged period while I have no intentions to leave Sg either.

Then there is another lady whom is not my type initiated messages to me but in a basis of making new friends I proceed the conversation with her.....

I am OK with Taiwanese actually. That lady looks above average looking if based on her profile picture.

But then I am quite worried that if we really managed to move that far will there be issues like re-location etc like what I mentioned earlier?

But then, there's no harm making more friends for now.....

Don't know if it is a good thing but she requested that we continue our conversions in Wechat instead of OKC.

I am more inclined to make new friends first instead of specifically finding the special someone.

Nope, I just asked her what is her hobby outside work (Since she did not indicated her hobbies in her profile and thus I am asking about her hobby in order to continue our conversion) and she replied that since I am just looking for fun (I am definitely not anyway) then I am looking for the wrong person (In fact in this case she initiated chat with me).

Anyway, I have clarified with her and she have accepted my explanation......

I think she could be either testing you or conversing with many people at the same time and mixed u up with someone else.

With this public warning service by the Straits Times, i think girls are more wary now
