• We can reach out to literally millions of people while being completely alone.
• The Internet can create a powerful feeling of closeness to someone whom we have never met or seen.
• On the Internet it’s easier to be honest, and, at the same time, to be more deceitful. It’s less embarrassing to speak the truth when the person may be someone you’ll never see face to face. And for that same reason, it’s easy to lie.
• The Internet allows a meeting without ever leaving home.
• On the Internet we connect only with our thoughts and emotions, but not with our bodies.
• Because of the distance, we have a sense of safety, but we don’t really know the intentions of the other person.
• On the Internet, we feel that we have the complete attention of the other person, and yet he or she can be involved in many other activities of which we’re not aware

Why are some people so good at flirting? It's second nature to them. They aren't even aware they're doing it much of the time. It's body language, gesture, stance, eye contact. They tilt their heads, toss their hair, give small smiles with a sideways glance. The tilted head on a woman allows her to show her sensuous, smooth neck. The sideways glance is often followed by a glance away or downward, a coy smile. Men do it too... a come hither look, maybe eyebrows raised. You're telling that you're available, ready for physical engagement. In primal terms, you're saying that you want to be in the embrace of the other person, and these are the signals before the verbal stage. And here's the real kicker: Evolutionary biologists say that those who are adept at flirting are much more likely to find a mate than those who don't flirt. Flirting is part of the universal ritual of romance. It comes natural to some, but it can be learned behavior. If you go to a gathering of singles, you will soon spot the master flirts. Watch and learn. You can be one of them.
