He’ll text you first thing in the morning so that he’s the first thing you think about.
In my college days, many moons ago, I perfected the art of meeting girls online.

It also has the potential to weed out the guys who have no sense of humor.
In a chat room or in IM, a guy can think for several minutes before typing a reply. He can look up romantic lines from a movie, or very obscure, romantic poems to quote from.
He can become as funny as Eddie Murphy high on speed, while in reality he might be about as humorous as a liver transplant.
But on the odd occasion that a guy looks like he has potential and hasn't messaged you yet, you're going to want to spruce up your virtual flirting game to command his full attention.
