Overview

Mike and his son Bret were abandoned by Barb—their wife and mother. After a battle with depression she had moved back East to her parents. Now, during evenings at home, Bret plays online computer games, Mike plays online social games. The game gets serious when Mike spies Barb, who is his Facebook Friend, playing golf with their common Friend, Steve. She certainly has got over her depression quickly.

Feeling lonely, Mike secretly finds an internet girlfriend on a dating site. He reasons it’s safe entertainment for a married man because she is on the other side of the Pacific, only a fantasy; not like Steve, living in the same town as his wife.

Barb phones Mike, tells him, “Move back, we will buy a house, regain the American Dream.”

Mike doesn’t want to move, he already has his California Dream job.

“Quit,” she tells him.

On hearing the situation, his friend Pete talks like a boxing announcer, “On this continent, the wife, the American Dreamer, the incumbent playing with Steve’s golf balls. On the other side of the Pacific, the Asian Fantasy, the Thai Lady, ready to play on the beach.”

Mike cheers, “Game on!” But he knows it’s not a game, someone is going to get hurt.

Watch Mike search for the solution to maintaining long distance relationships. See how a Silicon Valley guy uses social networks—read his personal messages and chat sessions. Follow him traveling for work and pleasure.

Meet the Author

Stacy David’s writing and teaching skills have taken him many times around the world. On trips to India, he had stopped in Singapore where he hopped flights up to Kuala Lumpur, and Bangkok, for work and pleasure.

As Stacy traveled, he recorded details into a notebook about events, places, quotes by people, and cultural cues from various countries while it was all fresh in my mind. The idea for the book came out of his notes and conversations with friends, chatting online, and participating on social sites.

He continues to write, and produce books for Tiger Farm Press.
