I think we all can imagine what it's like to be knee deep in the depths of internet dating...and Sweeney validates our skepticism - it IS really like that at times! She did not edit any of the correspondence between her and her potential "princes" - so what the readers get is raw interpersonal skills at their best! This book is witty, anecdotal, told in short sketches that make this book very user friendly (pick it up on your lunch hours!). This book is definitely going to be picked up for the Big Screen! This is bona fide 21st century dating! Dianne is strong, worthy of our applaud (for what she's had to deal with!), and I cannot help but to root for her all the while as I am (literally) laughing at loud!

This book is a fun read that will keep you smiling and laughing throughout. I found myself nodding my head as I, too, recalled my own online dating experiences. Dianne's book is playful and dreadfully honest and helps us to realize that we aren't alone in this great big (often crazy) world of cyber dating. If you are looking for online dating advice, try another place but, if you are looking for some levity during your quest for Mr./Mrs. Right or just want a great book to cuddle up with, Kissing Frogs in Cyberspace is the book for you.

This was just sent to me from a friend who knows the author. I thought, why is she sending me a book about dating. I am married. WHO CARES...This book was fantastic. Didn't matter that I was married or not. It is heart-warming, touching, and sweet. This is for married women, single women and anyone in the way, I just finished it and as I am writing this review, my husband is reading it with a smile on his face. Dianne, please tell me you are working on the sequel like you alluded, too. You have a fan for life.

I just got this book in the mail today. It is funny. I laughed out loud. I sat down for a few moments to start it, and an hour and a half later, I was finishing it up. I didn't even real time had flown by. A must read.

Ms. Sweeney's debut novel deserves to be taught in her own English classes. It's a great exemplar for how to seamlessly blend wit, truth, charm, and pathos. She uproariously skewers her online suitors without resorting to blind bashing. Instead, she takes the risky move of considering what she can learn from these men. This transition doesn't damper the breezy style, however -- Sweeney makes even her most vulnerable moments graceful. May all the English papers she grades be this enjoyable.

This book just came in the mail today, and I tossed it aside and went about my business. When I finished a couple of xmas tasks, I picked it up and thought, "let me thumb through it..." 3 hours later, I was still reading it. This was so funny. I quickly went on here and ordered 3 more for my girlfriends. So hysterical. Share with all your friends. This is the gift they need. If you missed them at xmas, sent it to them in January, February, March, April, May....and all the rest of the months.

This is the kind of book that tells it straight from the heart and gut-an unvarnished and clear-eyed look at the world of online dating. Dianne Sweeney takes the reader on her dates, good and bad, that she meets through online dating sites. She is the opposite of the writer who condescends to her audience: Because Sweeney has lived the experiences she empathizes with all of us single folks searching for that magical encounter. Her writing is unhurried and illuminating, and I wish I had had this book years ago when I first started dating. A great read!

Dianne Sweeney's journey to find love in cyberspace if absolutely funny and touching. She tells the story that many people can relate to in this new cyber world we live in. This book is perfect for anyone who is currently dating or for anyone who has ever dated. If you have friends that are thinking about getting divorced, please turn them on to this book. After reading it they may just realize that they are better off where they are!

Dianne Sweeney is a thirtysomething singleton who is looking for a love connection via cyberspace. With a hopeful heart and keen sense of the absurd Sweeney embarks on a six month internet dating quest to see if the virtual world can link to a real world life partner. Along the journey Sweeney matches with numerous bullfrogs, croakers, polliwogs, and toads, but is always ready with a quick quip! Sweeney's cyberspace dating misadventures are detailed in entertaining vignettes. I love this passage on her date with The Joker: Red Flag #1 The Joker and I are munching on popcorn [in a movie theatre] . . . during that PSA when the onscreen cell phone rings. In an instant, The Joker is on his feet and yelling out, "Put your cell phone away, now! Damn it!" Red Flag # 2 [After the movie The Joker invites Sweeney to dinner] Not missing a beat he says, "We have to take your car, though. I drive a sh*t box, and it stalled two times on the way over here. Red Flag # 3 [During dinner The Joker tells Sweeney] "I want you to know I'm a very sexual person. For Christmas, I gave my mother and sister a dildo." Needless to say the above was the first and only date Sweeney shared with The Joker Kissing Frogs in Cyberspace is a witty memoir that both singletons and non-singletons will appreciate.

This book made me laugh out loud. Isn't that lol these days. One of my friends kept telling me you have to get this book. I did, and she was right. It is hyterical. I loved it from start to finish. I really don't think I have laughed this loud at the beginning of a book in a long time. KUDOS, and I will be first in line to see this on the big screen.
