About the Author
Christie Jordan writes for women who want to reinvent their lives. She’s an entrepreneur and product designer with over 30 years of experience as the CEO of an international design and manufacturing company, inventing and launching products for Fortune 500 companies. Becoming single after a long marriage led Christie to use her marketing expertise to create an innovative system to manage the mysterious process of 21st Century online dating. And, yes, she found love and romance. You can, too!
This was a quick read. I finished it in one day. I thought it had some great information, such as how to evaluate prospects to ensure you're not wasting your time, who pays for first dates, and good suggestions for activities that are more interesting and fun than meeting for coffee (i.e. why meeting for coffee is LAME lol). It also talked about protecting your identity online and safety when meeting men in person. Good info there. Downsides: The book could have used a better editor. There were many spelling and grammar mistakes, as well as passages that repeated for no apparent reason. Some of the sample emails provided were cringe-worthy in how cheesy they were! The book only covers through first dates. Finally, I think my biggest issue with the book is that it insists your profile come off as supremely confident and relentlessly cheerful in tone, and that you should immediately discard any men's profiles who don't sound that way. I'm not that way myself! I can probably write a profile that makes it look like I am, but it wouldn't be authentically me. I'm shy and kind of nerdy. I wouldn't want to be dismissed out of hand for that, so why wouldn't I want to give a chance to a guy who might be the same?
It was an easy read with some good tips, the best one was on writing your profile and communicating. The tip I did not care for was given to very overweight woman ( I am not one) She basically said they needed to lose the weight otherwise they will not find a man. It would of been better to mention that there's sites specifically for overweight men and woman. Overall it's a good book and it would be helpful to read it before you start posting your profile.
This is a very good book on this topic. It addresses all phases of the journey into online dating, step by step. The author applies her experience on marketing and communications to online dating. Her advice is specific, sound, and helpful. I like her overall approach to the dating enterprise. I found particularly helpful the worksheets and examples she provides. Thanks Ms Jordan!
Well written, well organized, honest and it completely relates to the reality of dating in your 40s using technology. I've read almost a dozen similar books but this one is by far the best one I've read.
This is someone who understands today's realities and speaks to the issues we face. So far, so good, and I look forward to completing it. There's good advice no matter whether you are looking to meet "the one" or not.
