It is actually a Primer on Dating in general but applied to the specific mode of Online Dating.
I needed the advice, as I knew my Profile and pictures of self, and pics of special interest to me, were lacking.
I consequently edited my Profile on Match.com about 4 times and actually got praise from some ladies, who I emailed to check my editing work. They appreciated me more after my editing as suggested by reading this book.
I bought it used, like new for about $4.00; well worth it.
The web is perhaps the most significant change in communications since the invention of the printing press. And to move to match making is a logical use of these communications capability. The Internet expands your horizons beyond the local bar, or church, or any other social group that you might use to meet people.
First talking about the general rules, the authors move on to the mechanics of selecting and then using these sites. Let's face it, there are some commonly understood rules about making yourself as attractive as possible over the web without telling lies. As the story goes: 'She wants Tom Cruise, but she's no Nicole Kidman.'
The mechanics here include how to show yourself best in a picture, what to put in the written summary, how to phrase your first e-mail, and how to keep out of trouble -- the web is pretty wide open , how to proceed from just communicating online to gathering your heart in your throat and having that first meeting.
