In her accounting she lets us share in her dates with The Architect, the Neurologist, and the Plastic Surgeon. In between there was the Art Dealer, the Boy Next Door, The Investment Banker, the Drummer Boy. That is just to name a few.
She also gives us some rules of "Netiquette" we should follow if we are inclined to use the Internet for our dating pool. "We are living in the information at your fingertips mode as the Internet has become part of our daily lives, and we can find out more than we probably want to know."
She therefore advises you don't "Google" your date before the first date. One of her dates did and it was a disaster. She found out more about herself than she knew was out there. Also don't discuss body parts on the first encounter. She had one person she dated who gave her the details of his colonoscopy between the entrée and the dessert. When it comes to your profile there should be a cut off rule of five to 10 years on your age and five to 10 pounds on your weight.
Not all cyber-dates were disasters.
This book is a must for this generation of singles, both male and female, who are into cyber-dating. It is possible to find someone if you know the rules.
