Here is a sample of those quotes from those letters, including any of my comments in grey.
Out of the first 23 letters that I opened, 13 (about 57%) of them, as quoted above, explicitly asserted that the writer had read "Michael's" profile and was interested in him based upon that profile, and three others (about 13%) implied it by writing such things as "I’m very interested in you [...] I believe the first sight , perhaps the first look can doom our fate", "you can't imagine how happy I am at the moment" and "I feel so happy to be here to coonect with you my dear".
Too, several of these letters (the very first contact these supposed women had had with "Michael's" profile) included such implausibly forward statements as "Do you want to regard me as your special princess in your heart forever?
", "honey, I want to have a castle with you,just you and me,will you want to be my prince? Those just don't ring true to me as the type of thing a genuine woman seeking lasting love would say to a seventy year old man she'd never met before, especially absent a photograph or any other identifying details.
Whilst this might occur to some extent, I doubt that it occurs to the extent that would be necessary to excuse the otherwise disingenuous claims of the letters presented above: the reader who wrote to me did not allude to or provide evidence of anything dramatic.
Even if it did, though, would you be willing to pay money to a dating website which manipulates your profile without your consent or even knowledge?

Credits could be bought at varying rates depending on how many you bought at a time, ranging from per ten credits to per ten credits.
A sample of some of the first few messages "Michael" received, along with my commentary, if any, in grey, follows.
