Online Dating As A Strategic Game

RRP $354.99

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.

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.

It covers the behavior of waves in two parts, with the first part addressing hyperbolic waves and the second addressing dispersive waves. The mathematical principles are presented along with examples of specific cases in communications and specific physical fields, including flood waves in rivers, waves in glaciers, traffic flow, sonic booms, blast waves, and ocean waves from storms.
