She said that after chatting online for a while, “He asked for my phone number and when we talked, I could tell he had a great sense of humour.” He called Thiri four times a day for two months – “in the morning, then around lunchtime, dinner and bedtime.
He seemed very kind and really cared about me.” Nevertheless, Thiri knew firsthand how easy it is for people to create a false impression in order to entice people into a romance.
As Thiri scrolled through Tagged on her smartphone, I noticed that her profile has been viewed more than 4000 times and that she has 886 pending connection requests, the vast majority of which are from men.
She said “A lot of people try to connect with me, but I don’t choose people who I think might be nasty.

“[Indians] are now embracing a more progressive view on many things – in this case, dating, relationships and marriage,” said the founder of Two Mangoes.com, Anita Dharamshi.
China’s online dating market has existed for a decade and is expected to be worth 5 million by 2014.
It focuses on promoting the educational status of women, protecting them from abuse and violence etc.
In 1998, the founding day of the Committee was designated Myanmar Women’s Day.
Thiri said that Tagged “is a lot like using Facebook.” Members can create a free profile containing photos and personal information and can search for other members by name, email address and even schools where users may have attended.
