My-Thoughts

The Perils of Cyber-Dating by Julie Spira: I do not know where to begin on why this book was so bad. I will start with the fact that even though she states she is a Hopeful Romantic Looking for Love all the way through the book she mention her size 0 shopping sprees, her brand names, types of cars, professions of dates, swanky upscale “meet” places. So I am not so sure that she was looking for love though she did have some pretty horrific “dating” stories. Of course, the fault was never hers and the guys were always the one to do wrong. I quickly threw out the self-help part as I felt the author really had nothing in common with the average person looking for love online. Plus with rules like you can lie about your age by 5 to 10 years and your body weight by 5 to 10 lbs but be upset if the guy does it was a little far fetching. So I then just read it from an entertainment point of view but she was neither funny nor engaging. I would say read this book if you are in the 2% of the dating women that she might be talking to—-other wise skip it.
