What inspired you to write your book?
My experiences of dabbling with online dating.
Here is a short sample from the book:
You can find all kinds of men on dating sites. Tall men, short men. Black men, white men. Bald men, fellas as hairy as a yeti. That’s right. We’re starting with looks, because that’s where it always starts.
Women complain about men objectifying us – making judgements based solely on our looks. The fact is we’re just as guilty, we’re just more subtle about it. Not to say you have to be Brad Pitt, but the sad truth is if you’re a Danny Devito messaging a Charlize Theron, no matter how witty your opening or fabulous your profile, when we say we’re going to catch you later, trust me on this one, we’re not.
The better looking he is, the more typos we’re willing to forgive. The more lame jokes we’re prepared to lol at. If the guy looks like Gerard Butler, who gives two hoots what the profile says? That is, if the guy really does look like Gerard Butler.
You’ll come across this after a quick lap of the internet dating circuit. People paint themselves in the best possible light. There’s nothing wrong with that, but it can be a very fine line between ‘accentuating the positives’ and telling an outright lie. That picture he posted, it’s ten years old. Damn, he looked good then. You think you’re meeting with Johnny Depp, and in walks Yule Brynner. He’ll have to rely on his scintillating conversation and wit from here on in, but hey, at least he got the date, and maybe, just maybe, he’ll win you over yet.
