Book to Push New Dating Site
What is your opinion of online dating? You've heard of e-harmony and a number of others; do you think they are for real? Is it possible that there is a stigma about "having to resort" to online dating?Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.
Drs Les and Leslie Parrott want to dispel any negative connotations that come with dating on the Internet with their book, Dot com Dating.
This is a very small book. It's pretty much a gift-size book that dives into the myths about online dating, questions you should ask each dating site and ways to know if you're ready to use online dating.
The myths include:
Using online dating means you're desperate
Only liars, losers and freaks use those sites
Online dating goes against God's purposes
Some of the questions to ask are:
Does the site help you go past a picture and paragraph
Is the site lined up with your beliefs
Is it dedicated to helping you find true love
And then the kicker comes at the end.
These authors have created their own online dating service and suggest that you use their new website to find your future spouse. Isn't great that they would offer this nice advice before asking you to patron their site?

Through out the book you'll learn that singles, divorcées, and widowers from their 20s to their 80's have tried and have had success at online dating. There are dozens of real-life stories, some are heartbreaking and others are embarrassing. You'll also learn that a free dating site may not be the safest bet to find someone.
Being single, I was eager to review this book. I couldn't believe that the first couple to meet online was in 1982, I was one-years-old! And the couple is still married today. This story and other stories in the book will give you hope in finding true love. Here's one tip, when writing a profile, just be honest about whom you truly are. What makes dot.comdating different than other books about online dating is that this is from a Christian perspective. The only complaint that I have for the book, is at the very end, the authors are pushing their own online dating website onto the reader. I can't tell it they wrote the book to encourage people to find love or promote their site. Despite this setback, I enjoyed reading the true-life stories and recommend this to others.
