From Russia with ?

I signed up for the personals site LavaLife after I read some where that it was being used primarily as a place to find hook-ups. I eagerly dived into their "Intimate Encounters" section, creating a profile and pinging a few ladies. Not much reply from anyone. Most of the active ladies seem to be in British Columbia - note to self: examine specific geographical biases of individual online personals sites.

I did get a collect call recently. A collect call is where someone can reach out and touch you, without spending their money. It's a way for them to express interest and ask you to spend your money to make contact with them. Here's mine, a collect call in the "Relationships" section of the site:

RYSHIKA - Sent: Dec 05 at 7:05 PM PST
25 year old Female, located in MOSCOW, Russia. I'm Caucasian (White), a Gemini and Christian (non-catholic). I'm 5'7" tall with a slim body. I don't smoke. I drink socially. I have children who live with me. and earn less than $25,000 per year. Last online Dec 25, 2003.
According to the check-boxes she filled out in her profile, she values a sense of humor, optimism, open-mindedness. Maybe that's why she reached out to me in this way.

Either way, a collect call from a random young woman in Moscow - pardon my sense of adventure, but I haven't replied yet.
