Topic: Do you think you can really and truly "feel" chemistry via email?
This one is super easy for me -- of course you can feel chemistry via email!
Suave as we may attempt to appear, the truth is, most of us are still the same shy guys and gals we were in grade school. Initial meetings and conversations are hard: We get hung up on our looks, their looks, body language, our breath, their breath, whether they will judge us for not knowing the difference between a brew and a hop...
The internet provides a great opportunity though to put our best self forward without a lot of the in-the-moment anxiety. Say something dumb? Hit the delete key and try again. As if we could do that in *real* conversations. With some of the fear and inhibitions out of the way, conversation will flow better and easier, and chemistry can become apparent. Is it necessarily an indicator that it will transcend to real life? Maybe not. But it's a sign that the potential is there to be tapped.
