This dating book for the digital age is a mix of humour, frank advice and real information, with a healthy touch of irreverence. Aimed at 20-30s females, it details the different "personalities" of the various sites so that the reader can make an informed decision about their suitability. Advice is given on how to get the most out of online dating, including suggestions on how to write a compelling profile and interpret the profiles of others, write messages, spot timewasters and weirdos, as well as staying safe on a date night and keeping a sense of humour throughout. Real-life case studies illustrate those online dates that have ended in long-term relationships, giving the reader confidence to continue, as well as those that have been a disaster from the start, as a warning of what situations to avoid.
