Ms. Spira's book is a MUST READ FOR ONLINE DATERS. There are various books out there about online dating. Some of them are very mechanical, others purely anectdotal. This book seems to have the best of both. The Perils of Cyber-Dating does a great job of not only discussing how to navigate the online dating world, but also shares the joy and heartaches that people will experience in dating in general.

The author is extremely brave: her candor is so "out there" that you can't help but feel vicariously her ups and downs as she sifts through the myraid of dating profiles. These personal stories and episodes really "tell it like it is" for those of us who are trying to find love in an Internet world.

As a guy, I came away with lots of insights about how to write a profile that will attract more responses from women. I also learned about what kind of things you don't want to put into a profile. In addition, I found the book to be very helpful with guidance on handling the first 2-3 dates with someone who you meet online.

Indeed, the book discussed a great deal about dating etiquette in the 21st Century. In some ways, this books shows that many of rules or "best practices" about dating have not changed. On the other hand, the book also spells out the "new kinds of behavior" that are acceptable, and well as inappropriate conduct, in today's high tech world.

I found the book to be well written. It is well paced: there are just enough relevant details to keep you turning the pages. Moreover, she does an excellent job of laying out the theme or message of a particular chapter or episode within a chapter, by selecting the appropriate amount of detail. Unlike other "tell all" books, Ms.

Julie Spira is one of the most charismatic, sassy and smart women I know. I'm a big fan of her website and recently bought her book to read on my Kindle. Her voice is so honest and her anecdotes are both funny and cringe-worthy, a perfect combination for a book about dating. I highly recommend this book for all of my single friends.

Julie Spira has really done it with this book -- a virtual primer on internet dating, using her experiences as a guidebook for either the uninitated or frustrated. Describing herself as a "hopeful romantic" Spira addresses the topic with both the sophistication of a veteran of the cyber dating scene along with this charming naivete of hers that someday, someway she'll find that special someone through the internet. The book runs a gamut of emotions -- from romance, disappointment, excitement and, of course, humor. Great job, Julie!

Congratulations, Julie, on writing a terrific book about internet dating. Reading about author Julie Spira's life as a hopeful romantic on the internet is great fun and a real eye-opener. In her memoir, she shares both her success stories and her heartbreaks as she seeks Mr. Right in cyberspace. Aside from a presenting a series of personal tales, Julie also shows she uses technology to improve the odds in the new realities of dating in the 21st century. As just one example, she shows to spot red flags in online dating profiles by providing side-by-side definitions that compare "What They Say" with "What They Mean." Because of Julie's positive attitude, anyone shy about internet dating will be ready to take the plunge.

A great Valentine's Day gift to someone looking for love. "The Perils of Cyber-Dating" is THE classic book for those dipping their toes into the scary waters of Online Dating. Julie Spira, noted author on the cyberdating dot.com site, bares her soul and her romantic ups and downs in funny and poignant short stories about her cyber search for true love.

The books reads like a very interesting conversation with Julie. You learn about her failed dates (the man who talked about his colonoscopy) and those who swept her off her feet. You also learn about the perils of having your personal information available to anyone who wants to find out about your past.

It is no wonder Julie makes regular appearances on online dating on Network and Local TV and Radio stations, as well as You Tube!

It's simply the best book written so far about online dating.

This book has made a great change in my dating life. It has taught me the amazing adventure that dating can be with it's up's and down's. Although I was previously skeptical about the world of dating in general, weather it be online or not, I found this book to be a great guidance in helping me find a place to start and now with much success! Thank you to an awe-inspiring author for giving me the belief I needed to make the right moves.
