I enjoyed it as a Sex & The City type of story telling, and read it for pleasure as I am in a relationship and will not be dating online any time soon.

Throughout reading the book, I found myself relating so much to Julie as she shared her experiences of trying to find someone online suitable enough to meet for a date in person.And the fact that she describes herself as a "Hopeful Romantic," and writes that way, gives us all hope. As someone who has tried th Julie Spira's book, The Perils of Cyber-Dating: Confessions of a Hopeful Romantic Looking for Love Online, is the most truthful and hilarious books about searching online for love that I've ever read.Her advice about various aspects I was pleansantly surprised at how much insight the book provided.
