Dating in the 21st Century can be a great experience. The Internet has absolutely made it possible to find “The One” for us, but it has also given many people stories that are occasionally tragic and often times funny. Websites such as www.sexandthesingledad.com tell stories of bad dates and true love. The ‘Net has even made it possible for people such as author Dianne Sweeney to write books on the subject. Sweeney recently penned Kissing Frogs in Cyberspace—her account of six months online in search of Mr. Right.
Sweeney sets up her book perfectly with the opening lines of Chapter 1:
“I have a question. How does a single 35-year-old woman who has been in and out of meaningful relationships since she was sixteen find that one true love?”
She goes on to tell the story of how she decided to put Match.com’s Six-Month Guarantee to the test and see if she really could find her one true love. Did she find it? To answer that question would spoil the ending of the book.
Throughout the 203 pages she regales us with stories of good dates, bad dates, men who weren’t who they pretended to be, guys who were looking to get laid, guys who think they’re a stand-up comedian and guys who proudly announce “I always go Dutch throughout my relationships. That way we won’t owe each other anything in the end.”
Sweeney has a funny, innocent style that makes you want to keep reading and to not put down the book. You can pick it up on Amazon, Barnes and Noble or get your autographed copy at her website, www.diannesweeney.com. You can also become a fan of Kissing Frogs in Cyberspace on Facebook.
If you have ever dated or know someone who has, Kissing Frogs is something you should definitely read.
