Matchless: Searching for Love Online Paperback – January 6, 2011
Top Customer Reviews
While she clearly wrote this book for women, she has (perhaps accidentally) created a marvelous teaching tool for men. Yes, fellow guys, we can learn something from her stops and starts in relationship-building. No, I don't mean that we can learn how to write a better online profile. Rather, while enjoying the humor, we can learn something about ourselves and about the "fair sex". And we can also admit, as the author shows, that we know very little about women, and even less about relationships.
There are regrets without self-pity, reminding us that we all have regrets, so why not use those experiences to learn, grow, laugh, and love?
Women may read this book to commiserate, or to laugh, but I urge men to read this book for instruction, or at least for reflection. You won't regret it, and maybe the women in your life will thank you for it.
The take-home lesson is that one's intuition and first impressions are usually accurate and one should make decisions as if they always are. Like, for instance, walk quickly away at the first sign of weirdness. The book also gave an unsettling view of the large proportion of males on line that are unsuitable for an intelligent and sophisticated woman. The distressing experiences the author relates are funny and sad, but not unlike those that this reviewer experienced in the reverse gender situation.
This is really a must-read for anyone (male or female) considering, or even in the throes of, on-line match searching.
