New: Audio Book Version: The Perils of Cyber-Dating: Confessions of a Hopeful Romantic Looking for Love Online is a romantic tell-all memoir spanning over 250 online dates in almost 15 years.
Hi. I’m Julie Spira, author of The Perils of Cyber-Dating. As a hopeful romantic, I decided to share my online dating stories with the world. I felt it was important to spot the red flags in an online dating profile, laugh along the way, and help others who had to start their lives over again after a tearful breakup or a divorce.
Writing the book was a healing experience for me. Seeing The Perils of Cyber-Dating become a bestseller on its launch date brought me more joy than you’ll ever know. I turned lemons into digital lemonade.
My online dating book is filled with heartfelt, witty, and hilarious stories, of which many of you will relate to. I could have been any girl. I just happened to be the first to write about my romantic journey in cyberspace.
As a pioneer in the Internet industry, I became the first on my block to post an online dating profile. These were the days before high-speed Internet, Match.com, eHarmony, and mobile dating apps such as Tinder.
In the book, you’ll follow my journey as I skillfully navigate the web, hoping to replace who I thought was the “love of my life” with a new Internet mate.
Combining my fairy tale romances and disappointing heartbreaks with my personal rules of netiquette, I provide priceless knowledge about the most effective ways to date online, after I had to start my life all over again.
It’s a romantic journey and these are my stories.
