It's the perfect book for someone about to enter the dating world, someone who's already i When I decided to write a book about my own online dating experiences ( I considered who I'd want to write its foreword and Julie Spira was the obvious choice. I enjoyed it as a Sex & The City type of story telling, and read it for pleasure as I am in a relationship and will not be dating online any time soon. Julie Spira's book, The Perils of Cyber-Dating: Confessions of a Hopeful Romantic Looking for Love Online, is the most truthful and hilarious books about searching online for love that I've ever read.
Besides having walked the walk and dated the date, as it were, Julie has a wonderful knack for talking the talk--she describes her dating adventures with refreshing honesty, delightful humor, and invaluable cautionary advice. Her search to find "the one" are relatable to anyone who has ever tried to find love online.
So I am not so sure that she was looking for love though she did have some pretty horrific "dating" stories.
Of course, the fault was never hers and the guys were always the one to do wrong.
As someone who has tried their luck on dating sites, I felt so connected to Julie, especially when I read about her "Valet Parking Test." I highly recommend this book to anyone using dating sites to find love, those on dating sites who haven't found love, or anyone just looking to laugh at how ridiculous some people are when it comes to online dating.
