I don't think a book about internet dating would be much better.
But IMO only 25-30% of the things I read on the forums would be helpful advice.
Even if some of these things worked for them, it may not work for me. Online dating is similar to parenting, in that there is no right or wrong to it. Every individual weighs the pros and cons of things for themselves.
Plentyoffish dating forums are a place to meet singles and get dating advice or share dating experiences etc.
Hopefully you will all have fun meeting singles and try out this online dating thing...
Remember that we are the largest free online dating service, so you will never have to pay a dime to meet your soulmate.
Can anyone recommend a good book on online dating advice?
Most out there just seem to be full of useless information and rubbish. thanks Psychology Today has excellent articles about online dating and relationships.
The only one that I have found is called "three steps to online dating success" on amazon. Type "online dating" or"relationships" in the search box on the Psychology Today website and you will find many excellent articles including: "Eight Ways to Make Online Dating Sites Work for You" by Susan Krauss Whitbourne, Ph.D."The Pros and Cons of Online Dating" by Stephen J. D."Why Online Dating is a Poor Way to Find Love" by Key Sun, Ph.D."The Science of Intimate Relationships" by Alice Boyes, Ph. I never read a book or article that I considered to be good online dating advice. If he passes these tests, schedule a meet-and-greet in a public place.D."Connecting Through Online Dating" by Vivian Diller, Ph. In my opinion, this is the only book you need when it comes to dating in general:"The Manual: What women want and how to give it to them" W. Sure there might be some specific parts that I agreed with. I'm not sure, just going by what I read on the forums.Antonbooks on online dating are a waste of your time. But overall I felt these articles or books were mediocre at best I kind of wish the term Online Dating would go away. There is dating, and using an online service to facilitate meeting someone. Have you had a long term, loving relationship since your divorce? I read a fair amount of posts from members who do quite a bit of back and forth online, sometimes for weeks, without ever meeting the person. But you do realize that it's real men and women (even if some are outright ridiculous) giving advice based on their experiences?It's stunning and a little depressing to read on the forums how many guys (primarily guys) are having a tough time even getting someone to meet them, as well as the tales of a month of exchanging emails without ever meeting someone. I don't think you could get more solid advice from a book written by an author that may have never actually used a dating site to date.
