More About This Book

Overview

Have you ever said to yourself "I should write a book"?

Well, that's what John P. Gavin did - except he started with a newspaper column.

Gavin wrote an advice column called The Online Dating Coach for a San Francisco Bay Area paper. It was written in the spirit of a man telling women what guys are really up to out there in dating land.

The column had to do with things like what turns a guy into a 'player', and how to then spot that player. He also wrote about what a woman should do when the guy she's dating starts giving signals that he wants out hint: It's not what your friends will tell you to do and other stuff like that. It's all good advice, and pretty funny to boot, so he collected it into a book.

But the book is more than just advice.

You see, during all the time Gavin was writing columns about dating, he was also, well, dating... and crashing motorcycles, and getting his heart stepped on - and falling in love. And what he noticed after a while - okay it was brought to his attention by the woman he was chasing - is that wherever he was in his dating life at the time it usually seemed to find its way into the column he wrote that week.

So how could he leave that stuff out?

The book, "Online Dating Sucks... but it's how I fell in love" is not just a collection of really good dating advice columns - it's also the story of a year in John Gavin's life, during which you won't believe what happens no kidding - you can't make this stuff up.

    This is a good book!

    To be honest I bought this book because I loved the title (plus I date online) but I have to say this is a good book - really good.
    I loved the honesty and the authors personal story. The way he weaves his personal experience with the advice is interesting and fun!

    As a Dating, Relationship, & Image Coach who helps singles find love both on and offline, I wholeheartedly recommend Online Dating Sucks..but it’s how I fell in love to anyone interested in developing a satisfying romantic relationship. The book truly covers all of the challenges that singles face as they navigate the modern day world of online dating. It is clear that John Gavin understands the ins and outs of the online dating scene from both the male and female perspectives. His take on gender dynamics is refreshingly real and will serve you well if you’d like insight as to how “the other half” operates. Gavin is right on in so many ways!

    In this eye-opening book, he weaves personal anecdotes and entertaining dating experiences with solid advice for singles. As the story of how he finds his own love unfolds, it is apparent that the compilation of his columns serves as more than just a guide to finding love but shed some light on keeping it too. This book is full of good stuff. Whether you love or hate the idea of finding your next date online, read this book for a dose of the medicine you need: one part empathy, one part solid advice, and one part laughter. The title of the book is perfect. Yes, the medium is flawed, but Gavin is the proof in the pudding. Even today, we can still find love-or something like it-with the click of a mouse.
