Review: Kissing Frogs In Cyberspace by Dianne Sweeney


About The Book:
In today’s age of virtual “hook-ups” and online encounters, it is no surprise that there are thousands of websites devoted to Internet dating.

Told in a series of vignettes, Kissing Frogs in Cyberspace, Dianne Sweeney’s revealing account of dating in the 21st century takes you on a hilarious, often poignant journey of online dates, dumps, and disasters. As she discovers the world of Internet dating is blessed by those seeking true love and plagued by those just “seeking.” Kissing Frogs in Cyberspace uncovers the reality of online dating-its pleasures, its horrors, and all the quirky stuff in between.
My Thoughts:
Loved this one! It was a hilarious memoir that gave us insight into the world of online dating. Let me tell you...I can relate! Dianne's story was real and spot on! I love that she included chat logs and emails. They were funny and oh so true. I don't know how many of you have tried online dating, but whether you have or haven't you really should check out this book.
I think I loved it because it was funny and you can relate to it. I myself actually met up with my husband online. (OK I love to tell the story but I'll keep it condensed) My husband was actual a "boyfriend" of mine when we were about 13. We hadn't seen each other in a few years...after a break up (not directly after of course) I went online and started chatting. Long story short...we figured out who the other was; he came to visit me two days later and never left. That was 7 1/2 years ago LOL!
So yeah, you never know what will happen in cyberspace, but if your ever looking for a funny POV on those cyber-weirdo's you meet, then this book is for you!
A question for all you lovely readers: I must know...do ya'll have any interesting cyber stories?
