INTIMATE INTERFACE: DATING IN A WEB 2.0 WORLD
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
LOS ANGELES, Calif. - MAR. 11, 2009
With the advent of social networking sites like Facebook, MySpace, Twitter and the myriad Internet dating sites, it’s a wonder the laws of attraction aren’t written in HTML. Julie Spira’s new book, The Perils of Cyber-Dating: Confessions of a Hopeful Romantic Looking for Love Online is a hilarious and heartfelt memoir of a woman’s romantic journey in cyberspace – and the perfect guide for those who are digitally dateless.
Spira’s tale begins in 1994, when she becomes the first on her block to put up an online dating profile. As a single woman living a glamorous life on the west side of Los Angeles, the author’s ‘Sex in the City’-like escapades keep her Inbox full as she tries to replace the man she thought was “the one” with an Internet mate. A hopeful romantic, Spira keeps her head up even after an Internet match that leads to a painful divorce.
In an effort to speed up readers’ searches for their own perfect matches, The Perils of Cyber-Dating combines Spira’s candid narrative with valuable online dating tips. Her ‘Rules of Netiquette’ provide guidance on the basics of cyber-dating, including tips for creating appropriately revealing profiles and definitions for the descriptions found on the profiles of potential suitors. She also discusses how technology has shifted the playing field of the dating game, reassuring readers that all it takes to get started is an email address.
Comedienne and best-selling author Joan Rivers calls The Perils of Cyber-Dating “Hilariously Funny!” She adds, “Singles of All ages should read this book.” Celebrity photographer and author of Glamour Girls Patrick McMullan calls Spira “A very glam gal.” Dr. Pat Allen, author of the best-seller Getting to “I Do” says “The Perils of Cyber-Dating gives hope to singles everywhere with an email address that they can successfully meet someone online.”
Matchmaker, Julie Ferman of Cupid’s Coach calls the book “A wonderful companion for singles looking for love online.” She adds, “Online dating memberships should come with a handbook and many doses of humor. Julie Spira provides both.”
An entrepreneur and Internet industry pioneer, Julie Spira has been on more than 250 cyber-dates. She holds a bachelor’s degree in television and radio from Ithaca College. This is her first book.
