I picked this book up by chance at the library. The author, who is writing about his experiences with on-line dating spent a large portion of his life in Milwaukee, my home town. I've always been curious about this subject. When I was single, in my early twenties, computer dating was just starting up. You'd go to the company's office and fill in a bunch of forms and answer a ton of questions. You'd go home and wait a few weeks, and then be instructed to come in and get your computer list of poss ...more

Wrote this on my bookstore page.

Yesterday, I was not in the mood to people. In fact if it wasn't for the fact I had to get up and parent, I probably would have took the day off. I am glad I didn't.

A gentleman appeared in the store, with a pile of books under his arm. Nothing unusual about that because this is a bookstore. Without much a pause, he delivered a perfect sales pitch for his new book. I have to admit, I was intrigued by it. Love at first site, shall we use that pun effectively. His

This book pales in comparison to Jane Juska's A Round-Heeled Woman: My Late-Life Adventures in Sex and Romance, and Bob Morris's Assisted Loving: True Tales of Double Dating with My Dad. While Juska refers to herself as "round-heeled" or promiscuous, and Morris admits his father sought out well-heeled ladies, I'm afraid Mathews just comes off as a heel. I couldn't get past my first impression of him as a blamer, bitterly refusing to take responsibility for failed relationships.

The book talks about the situations and the experiences of the author in his marriages. This is a personal book and the way he delineates his view points is hilarious. The concept of burlesque can be seen in this book. The author talks about online dating and the way he struggles to update the details in it. These interactions surely makes you laugh your heart out. Further, we find self mockery element in it.
