When Patrice Gendelman found herself newly divorced after twenty-one years of marriage, she decided to dip her toe in the murky pool of Internet dating.
What she discovered was often hilarious, sometimes outrageous, and forever fascinating. Now, the author shares her correspondence and that of others in her laugh-out-loud look at online love.
It's a Connection! It's a Comedy! Internet Dating The Good. The Bad. And the Ugly! compiles first-contact emails spanning twenty-two states, which come together to reveal the wide range of behavior that can wind up in your inbox when you opt into an online dating service. From appropriately brief introductions to the borderline stalking, this comic look at the lovelorn is sure to get a rise out of anyone who has ever ventured into the rollicking realm of virtual romance.
While Gendelman's book enjoys a bit of gentle fun with the rogue's gallery that dwells in cyberspace, it also serves as a helpful guide to the pitfalls and potentials of online dating services. With wit and hard-won wisdom, this tongue-in-cheek take on modern courtship will help you laugh, cry, and learn to hit "delete."
