I must admit that this book helps me in three ways. Firstly, it changes my archaic mindset about dating. This book puts back some credibility into online dating. There has been far too much misinformation about the negatives and taboos of initiating web-based relationships. Simply put, online dating is not wrong per se. With the needed safeguards and wise discernment, it can be made to work for people. Secondly, it provides good guidelines for online usage. For instance, I really appreciate the part about free dating sites. If we want good relationships, do not cheapen the search process by dumping all our data and hopes into free ones. There is no free lunch. Free sites need to find a way to make money too. If they can use YOUR confidential information to make money, they will. Thirdly, the authors tell us how to size up the online dating sites. This book is a welcome addition to the field of dating and finding relationships for singles. Traditional means are increasingly limited. The world is increasingly online. While I am somewhat cautious about online dating in general, I believe that this is the thing of the future. In fact, it has already come, and will replace traditional dating avenues like how EMAIL has replaced 'snail mail.' If we cannot beat them, might as well be prepared for them. Having said that, the best way is to have a good mix of both online and offline presence. Some people can communicate well online, but are tongue-tide offline. There is no substitute for face to face communications. Online dating facilitates the process in getting there. If you are single, and want to meet eligible ones out there, this book is a must read.
