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".
I also can't fail to mention that after the first photograph in each letter, it costs ten credits to open each photograph, and that, surprise, surprise, many (around 50%) of the letters "Michael" received contained more than one photograph.
To give you an idea of the frequency of the letters, around 60 letters arrived within the first nine days - about 6.5 letters per day.
To check that this wasn't some strange anomaly, on 5 July 2014 I created another fake account, "John Smith", aged 88 (the maximum age it is possible to set for men on asiandate.com), with profile description ("A Few Words About Yourself") set to "I am an old and decrepit man with terminal cancer and absolutely no money. As with "Michael"'s account, I provided no photographs.
Within two days, the account received 15 letters, with similar results as for "Michael" - many of the writers claimed to have read, and to be attracted to "John" based on, his profile; many of them provided more than one photograph.
So, about 70% of the first 23 letters I opened either by a charitable interpretation blatantly or implicitly lied, and/or, by a more likely interpretation, attempted to scam "Michael" by flattering him and pretending interest only so that he would spend money (between and a pop) to read and reply to future letters.
That's not to say that the remaining 30% were not scammers, and, indeed, the style of their letters was very similar.
My investigations took two forms: direct investigation by registering a fake profile, and indirect investigation by scouring the net for positive/negative reviews.A sample of some of the first few messages "Michael" received, along with my commentary, if any, in grey, follows.I did not take screenshots of any of these chat pop-ups, but you don't have to take them on faith - you can perform the same experiment that I did, and see for yourself that these are the sort of messages that you receive.I could be pretty certain, then, that anybody messaging him either had not read his profile, or was a scammer, or (most likely) both.

After several days, the chat pop-ups stopped arriving from women and started arriving (almost, but not quite) exclusively from women (more on this site and others in the family later), as evidenced by both the physical appearances of the women and the chat links, which were to pages in the domain.
