In this Internet dating primer, a self-proclaimed online serial dater demystifies fishing in the electronic sea. Katz, founder of the world's first Internet dating consultant firm, E-Cyrano, assures the uninitiated that Internet dating is the "wave of the present," with over 40 percent of all single adults in America searching for love online. Although Katz admits he's never sustained a relationship for more than seven months, he entertainingly reviews how to present one's self on the Web and prepare for every eventuality-from deciding how long to wait before meeting in person to who should pick up the check. Much of his advice is common sense-write a lively introductory essay, be selective in whom you respond to-but, as Katz notes, common sense often goes the way of the Dodo when it comes to dating.
