✰✰✰✰✰ A fun and zany read!! Chick Lit Central, Sara Steven, Book Reviewer
I’ve never done online, or eDating. I have plenty of friends who have, however, and after reading eDating the Old School Way: A comedic guide to online dating, I think I need to buy multiple copies and send them out as dating tools!
According to Maura Stone, there are four types of men you typically find in the online dating pool: The Dweeb. The Nerd. Damaged Goods, and The Player. She describes each one in perfect detail, outlining the various signs you need to look out for, even providing sections entitled “Motherly Advice”, to help you further on your journey. This book isn’t just for the ladies. Stone has also included plenty for the men. An example: If a woman has any of these monikers in her online profile, take heed:
Not really divorced
Crazy ex or exes
That's a condensed list. There’s plenty more where that came from, and each one has an in-depth description so you know just what to look out for! I particularly enjoyed the chapter of “universal truths” pertaining to men. As in, they are visual. Or, they like the internet. I also enjoyed the list of edating Do’s and Don’ts, a must-read for anyone embarking in the online dating world!
Stone breaks everything down into simplistic comedic form and fashion, making this a fun and zany read. It also relieves the pressure one might put on themselves during the dating process. It doesn’t have to be so serious; part of the fun is in the exploration. And honestly, you never know what you’re going to get. I have to add, if you’re one that shies away from anything racy, make sure you put your eye muffs on. There are plenty of sexual innuendos, but in my opinion, it adds to the fun of this book.
