Greetings Whitehat,
Your interesting question has slid down to 170+ on the overall list,
which seems a shame.  The following is obviously not what you want for
an "answer", but maybe it will jog someone to try.

Interpersonal communication on internet usually occurs one-on-one,
even in a public forum.  Persons are usually in a situation where they
are undisturbed by others and can concentrate on their words, how they
express themselves, how the present themselves  - and can go back and
correct before posting!  This makes it much easier for one to "be" as
attractive as one would like to be  - or to be as one believes the
other person would like one to be.
This doesn't have to be devious, it is just much easier in black and
white communication to do this, which is what people try to do when
they want to make friends face-to-face.  But then visual impressions,
surroundings, other people competing for interest, peer influence,
prior information about each other (work place, etc.), speech habits,
may detract and weaken a person's presentation of him/herself.
Just an example:  I am usually an impatient conversationalist, hardly
letting someone finish his sentence.  On internet, I am forced to be a
good listener.

Everything about flirting and good communication recommends this.
Just from this alone, on internet, we all are more attractive to others.

This alone may be the answer to your question.

Is that any help?
Regards, Myoarin

NO arguments with the contents of TLSpiegel's links.

Something else that occurred to me is that on internet one can find
and select interest groups much more easily than within one's physical
community, thereby making it easier to find friends with the same
