As anyone who has done it knows, when you meet someone on the interweb, the ability to gauge how you think the relationship is going is a little easier, and harder, all at the same time.
It's impossible not to do. To check to see if the one you've started dating is still logging on. Still looking.
It's impossible not to feel a little jealous if they are. And if they're not, it's perhaps too easy to get complacent that things are going well.
At some point, if things keep going well, one or the other takes their profile down. When one does but the other doesn't, it's impossible not to wonder what that means.
Does the one who took their profile down think they've found the right (or right, for now) someone? Or did their subscription run out?
Is the one who left their profile up not as content with the one they've found, for now? Still looking? Or just keeping options open?
On the other hand, aren't the real interactions, the words that are spoken and written, the actions, more meaningful than little words on a website?
