So, I posted to this forum ages ago when I was gathering data for my dissertation, now being written. All the information was extremely helpful and I was very excited by the response from everyone.
In an effort to get myself moving on a theme I have what may look like a random question for you all (but it really isn't).
How can you tell you're chatting with a girl? Any textual clues, phrases, avatar choices, etc. that "tip you off"?
The question may sound strange, but I'd appreciate thoughtful and honest responses.
Please help a struggling grad student.
Edit: To clarify, the context is not face-to-face, it is totally text-based. Sorry about that and thank you for the responses so far!
