The bulk of the book is made up of multiple accounts about her failed online dating encounters. Each frog is given his own chapter with a humorous title that seems to capture her overall view of the guy such as "The Surfer Dude", "The Phantom", "The Stalker", "The Pothead", and "Mr. Revenge", among others.
Through these accounts, Jane Coloccia reveals an awful lot about her own personality and admits that she was more attracted to the constant cyber attention she was receiving from men on the web than she was to most of the men she agreed to go out with. In some parts, she comes off as a little too judgmental and later confesses to being a bit of a "dating snob" but despite the occasional hint of arrogance in her writing, the stories she tells are certainly entertaining.
Overall, the book is an easy and amusing read. It offers a lot of insight about what to do and what not to do when it comes to online dating. In the final chapters of the book, Jane Coloccia provides readers with suggestions for how to successfully navigate the slippery slopes of online dating and even includes advice straight from her own therapist's mouth.
I can see how this book might be helpful to online daters who are interested in learning from someone else's mistakes so if you are in the market for something along those lines, consider picking up a copy of Jane Coloccia's confessions.
I did not think it was anything like " He is just not that into you".. It was very disappointing to me.
