Meet the Author

Diane has more than 10 years experience with internet dating. She first went online in 1999, hopeful to find the relationship she'd always dreamed of. Now more than 36,000 emails, flirts, smiles, and winks later, she's ready to bare it all.

A self-employed, professional with more than 15 years experience as a business and human resource consultant, she' has written countless technical reports and business documents for clients, as well as countless dating profiles for herself.

When she's not busy writing emails replies to THICK11 and BIGWILLY7, she's writing novels for publication.

Diane currently resides on both sides of the border. Travelling from Vancouver, BC to Las Vegas, NV on a regular basis, she hasn't limited her dating to her own backyard.

Although her formal education is business related, she has experience in both the boardroom and the chat room. Working around the clock to achieve her goals may reduce the number of dates she can go on, but she never gives up on her dream of finding herself a Penis with Potential (PWP).

    A Valuable Secret Worth Having

    These days the search for the right man feels like an overwhelming ordeal. Even for a sensible female who understands that Prince Charming/the Knight in Shining Armor is as mythic as the unicorn, and knows that dating is a game of numbers, finding the right man is still daunting. Online dating sites add even more complications to a single woman's difficult quest despite opening up more options for her (one finds rather quickly that some of those options weren't worth opening up in the first place!). Enter Diane L. Roberts, who gives her searching sisters valuable help in Be Careful What You Click for: A Girlfriend's Guide to Online Dating.

    This is a how-to book, and Diane is thorough. She starts the reader out with preparation: what websites are out there and how to pick the ones for you, what would be the best picture to post, and how to fill out the profile. She then gives you tips on how to determine what you want: "The [unfair but ever-present] Caveman Rules", then the need to define and STICK to one's standards. She introduces you to Mr. Right for One Night, Borderline Boy, and the very important Penis with Potential. Once Diane has armed you with the tools for discernment she then helps you with selection - this crucial task is appropriately called Wading Through S***, which will eventually lead to some positive action once the Junk is Out of Your Trunk. Then all that's left is dating, right? Well, Diane has a few wise words and a cautionary tale or three for that as well. At the end of each chapter the reader makes a contract with Diane that summarizes what the chapter asks the reader should do from now on. If you're serious about finding the right Penis with Potential, it is in your best interest to deliver on these promises you make! All in all the reader gets the comprehensive perspective of someone who has been through the wringer herself - Diane is an expert by virtue of surviving "over thirty thousand emails, flirts, smiles, and winks, hundreds of phone conversations and coffee dates, even a relationship or two". This makes a lot of her advice practical and to the point - she covers all the phases of an online date cycle, all the guise of a slim, very easy to read guide. I particularly appreciate the forthright voice she used - it makes the reader feel like they're in a one-on-one private conversation. Diane even put in possible responses her reader would make as if they were having a face-to-face talk to further that impression. While that did not work so much for me, I'm guessing it was more my personality than her literary device, since I found myself visibly smiling or smirking as I read through the book, much like I would if I were listening to a group of friends dishing out the low-down over some coffee. The advice she gives is concrete and clear, it doesn't downplay the need for a personal investment of will and discipline, and it does not gloss over the possible disappointments you could encounter. I found it refreshing to read advice delivered in such a personal manner.

    I believe that Diane has hit a good balance between a personable voice and sensible advice to make Be Careful What You Click For: A Girlfriend's Guide to Online Dating a valuable book to her readers. It is a secret ace in the hole, much like the one-size-smaller suit or little black dress that helps one lose five pounds at at a time until one reaches the desired weight: not openly flaunted but valued. Highly recommended.
