15 Days of Online Dating, an Old Woman's Mystifying Experience. Seventy-four years old Maian has been bored with her life in general and she is lonely and depressed. She lived in Canada and then the US since she was 28; she is practically an American now. She does not watch Chinese TV and she is at odds with the other old Chinese women. The Caucasians and African Americans she meets usually assume that she speaks minimal English. They would only talk to her when it's necessary and with either patronizing or condescending manners. Last December, her elder daughter sent her money instead of a gift. Her younger daughter suggested that she use this extra money on an online dating site. She said, "Take it as a gamble. It will cost no more than a day at a casino. You may find an old man who likes to read and write, and who definitely will have plenty of time to read the stories you wrote. Who knows, maybe even a late-blooming romance." The site they agreed on was not a "free" one and not a local one. They thought that if someone had to pay to get on the site, they could not be too bad. Maian paid for a one-month subscription and she had a mystifying experience for 15 days of online dating. She writes this book which includes stories of her Chinese childhood and background.

Based on a study using online ethnography as the major research method, this book explains why and how men in Hong Kong use QQ-an online instant messenger-to "chase" women in mainland China, especially in the neighboring city of Shenzhen. Chasing women through QQ is a reciprocal exchange process during which the resources to be exchanged in the interaction are not negotiated. Rather, the men provide resources to the women, hoping for rewards in return that are not guaranteed. This characteristic of the exchange makes men who chase women through QQ very strategic in their action. They try to maximize the rewards and minimize the costs by adopting myriad strategies, such as constructing an attractive online identity by strategic self-presentation. The role of emotions in the exchange process is also examined. Men learn the emotional norms through the online forum, but sometimes it is difficult for them to control their emotions; some men fall in love when they are not supposed to. As it happens, they have failed to calculate the costs and rewards rationally in that they may provide too many resources to the women without getting enough rewards in return.
This book provides original insights into the thought processes, motivations, desires, anxieties and risks of Hong Kong men seeking short-term sexual relations with women on the mainland. These insights are highly relevant to our understanding of the quickly evolving use of social media, a phenomenon of worldwide importance and deep implications.
HOW TO MAKE MONEY ONLINE: Learn how to make money from home with my step-by-step plan to build a $5,000 per month passive income website portfolio (based on building 10 websites that make at least $500 per month each). In association with makemoneyfromhomelionsclub.comNO PRIOR EXPERIENCE REQUIRED. ALL INSTRUCTIONS ARE FULLY DETAILED AND STEP-BY-STEP SO ANYONE CAN FOLLOW THEM EASILY.Online passive income is the ultimate dream. Making money while you sleep. Everybody wants it. But is it really possible? The short answer is "yes."The longer answer is "yes, but it isn't easy to accomplish." If it was, wouldn't everyone be doing it? In my ebook, I give you a step-by-step plan on how to develop a passive income website portfolio and show you how making money online actually works (with links to supporting video lessons for extra clarity). The specific plan I teach is designed to make you $5,000 per month in passive income earnings, based on 10 websites, with each website having a targeted earnings level of at least $500 each. Once you understand the process though, you can decide to build 20 of these websites, or 100! When you stop is up to you (and yes, there are people making tens of thousands of dollars per month on the Internet based on these concepts - they just love the work and don't ever stop building new websites or expanding their current ones!). What's great about the business plan that I teach you is not only the income level you will accomplish if you follow through, but all that you will learn in the process. The skills you learn in this ebook will enable you to build all kinds of online businesses and open the door for all kinds of entrepreneurial projects you may have.Not only that, you will be able to evaluate business ideas much more intelligently once you've gone through this whole process. You will understand the fundamentals of keyword research & analysis, traffic & lead generation, social & affiliate marketing, monetization & conversion testing, and traffic analysis. These skills will help you immensely in ANY business you ever decide to start (online or not, passive or not).Generating an online passive income won't happen overnight and takes a lot of hard work, but going through the process is completely worth it and having an exact plan of action is the ONLY way to ensure success. Let me put it this way: if you were offered no pay for six months for 40+ hours of work per week, but after those six months, you got $5,000+ per month for the rest of your life, would that be worth it to you? If that idea isn't unbelievably exciting to you, then this isn't the business for you. This isn't a get rich quick scheme. This is a business. Except with this business, instead of trading your time for money (like most jobs), you are investing your time. You work hard now and continue to reap the benefits indefinitely. Building an online business takes a lot of work and a lot of patience, but the rewards can be amazing. That's the kind of business that I teach you in this ebook.
