I'm a gamer who seems to have a lost sense of identity. All of my friends are Chinese, I speak Chinese very well, if I wanted to, I could study in a Chinese University. Earlier today I was using an app for my windows phone called 威信， lesser known in English as WeChat...
I was minding my own business, eating dinner with my friends, and I got a voice message from this (lets assume for now, a female), in Chinese. I thought her accent was particularly strange, and so did my friend from Beijing and Chongqing. Checking the person's profile, I came to the conclusion that this was at least someone in the U.S. and someone that was able to speak Chinese, both Cantonese and Mandarin, as well as Viet. Checking her profile on Wechat, I saw that her cover photo was an anime character instead of a real photo like normal human beings use.
I must say, this girl was particularly "flirty", if you will, using tons of smilies and emotes.
Being familiar with the minority ethnic groups that are popular in my area, I was able to guess that maybe this girl (again assuming she is, in fact, female) was Viet. I heard tons of voice messages from her end of the phone, some with background noise, some without, and after a while I just assumed she was out with friends.
She tells me she's 23, this is after I tell her I am 23, her voice makes her pass off as slightly younger, in my opinion.
I give her my facebook, she doesn't want to add me. Actually, she just altogether flat-out told me that she can't find me on facebook.
Then finally, I ask her if she has a real photo of herself. She says she doesn't have one.
Then I ask her if she has QQ, MSN, or Yahoo. She says she doesn't like using those...
Then she starts asking me these weird questions after she says she wants to get coffee with me sometime. "Are you alone?" "Do you live alone?" "Do you live close to the dorms?"
This is a little creepy... basically I terminated our dialogue at that exact moment. In all honesty, I must say the following:
If someone is asking you these kinds of questions, presenting inconsistencies such as being a 23 year old college socialite and not having facebook, not being willing to actually put forth some effort to actually get yourself a date, then something is wrong.
Should I get a guard dog? something felt utterly creepy about all this...
