What you will find are stories told by an adventuresome collection of people who have spent hours on the Internet looking for relationships, friendships, or just some good old-fashioned fun and laughs. These stories are intended to entertain and delight you, frighten and horrify you, and most of all, to prepare you for what you can expect when you decide to venture online in the penultimate quest for love and companionship.
Internet dating has spread across the globe as quickly as the Internet has spread its cyber-wings. Nearly one hundred million adults have online profiles, and from these millions, we have collected a small group of real people who are willing to relate their experiences in their own words, words that won't send you running for a dictionary and words that will leave you either laughing at their misadventures or shaking your head in commiseration.
Included in this motley crew is David Osterczy, father of three, photographer and storyteller. Dipping into three years of experience standing alongside his cohorts in the firing line of online dating, he brazenly lays out all the dirty details of his exploits, asks the questions we all want to ask, and explores all the twists and turns of the road to online romance. You are invited to form your own opinions as you read the many points of views, knowing that they are told with no punches pulled.
Take it or leave it, this is the Internet dating community.

Television reality can never seem the same again...good show chap!, I have read with amazement at the vitriol used to describe this hard hitting and topical look at television reality shows. Reviewers have indicated up to this point their confusion as to its hit or miss quality relative to criticism. I think they have completely missed it on this one. I cannot see Samantha as the protagonist in this extraordinary story. It is Charles who, despite all good intentions is the lost and confused one. After he discovers the prized stamp collection of the President of the local University and plans his theft of the $1,500 worth of stamps, it is also Charles who has second thoughts about how the goods will be transported to Spain. Samantha is only a secondary character and if she contributes anything at all to the story line it is as the conscience of the writer. I don't think this was well thought out but in the end I thought 'bully for you, dude¿, when after the boat capsizes he grabs for his revolver and shoots the captain. This could have made for some very funny moments if only the writer had written them. I am very interested in learning how the group makes it back to South Dakota when the car breaks down. But I guess that is for another time. Think about purchasing this one. Better wait until the price goes down.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.
