This is a humorous approach for finding a good recipe.  Learning how to write a great personal ad.   It will show you what to put in your ad, and most importantly what to leave out.  How to read personal ads to know what they are really saying and reading between the lines, for what they don’t say.

 

Dating and relationships is like making a cake.  You should start with a good recipe.  A recipe that does not include any foiled Bundt cakes, fruitcakes, and no half-baked nut wonders. What we really need is a human Mixmaster, where you can gather up all of the ingredients you want and throw them in there to make the perfect mate, but then that would take all of the fun and surprise out of searching the Internet now wouldn’t it?”

 

Even with a good recipe things can still go awry:

 

“Great growling grizzly! I had a date with Wild Man Mike from the Klondike.  An extremely nice guy, but short of coming to the date with a weed eater for beard trimming I was not equipped to handle what I had unearthed.  Mother Mary, he was wild and hairy.  The only sparks that arose in this situation came from the undercarriage of my car when I hit a speed bump driving away at 85 miles an hour.

 

In this book, you will discover some of the pitfalls and the pratfalls of online romance. We have endeavored in creating this book to show you a little of both.  Many of the things that we discuss are through observations and stories from people that have been there and done that.  We truly hope that you enjoy reading our somewhat comic romp through the world of matchmaking in cyber-space as much as we enjoyed creating it.

 

“On-line dating can be interesting and fun but all of the stars have to align perfectly for that to happen. Finding that perfect someone is not the norm it’s kind of like winning the lottery. You run the ball hopper and see what pops out.  Maybe if you’re lucky you’ll get a winner but more often then not you’ll get a loser.”

 

This is both a man and a woman’s perspective about Internet Dating and relationships.
