Book Signing at Donald J Pliner


The June Gloom didn’t keep the people away on Saturday, June 13th at Donald J Pliner in Beverly Hills where they hosted a book signing party for The Perils of Cyber-Dating: Confessions of a Hopeful Romantic Looking for Love Online, by Julie Spira.

The event drew a crowd who sipped on cosmopolitan martinis, nibbled on Italian “Limonada” cookies from La Piu Bella Tavola caterers, enjoyed the huge shoe sale from the Italian designer, and received private online dating tips from the author. One special couple shared their story on how they met on JDate?.com — the #1 Jewish social scene and he proposed to her on the first date. They were married within a few months and are glowing with happiness.

Those who purchased a copy of the book received a VIP Goody bag which included a gift certificate from Beyond Physical Therapy for a private massage or pilates session with a private instructor, gift certificate for online dating coaching from CyberDatingExpert.com, panties in a pill bottle and a $5 gift certificate from PureDelish.com, Boot Camp training class from certified personal trainer Daniel Laga, candles from PartyLite, Olive Butter Steam Treatment from Byu-ti salon, 50% coupon for laser treatment from Broadway Studio, a copy of Singular magazine, and more.

Book Review
The Perils of Cyber-Dating
Julie Spira – Morgan James

 

by Dane Robert Swanson

More people are doing it now;  going online to find mates. It can be a dangerous area to surf in. You don’t know what you are getting nor how truthful those profiles are.

“This book is not intended to scare or discourage anyone from online dating. It is a real-life guide to embrace and navigate the World Wide Web with fun and entertaining stories,” author Julie Spira writes in the introduction.

She states that there are over 40 million singles now online seeking love. It is not always what you see is what you get. “When choosing to go online in search of love, the most critical challenge is creating your online profile.” It seems that most people will fudge on their details. “I used to be honest about my age,” she admits, “I sometimes found myself cutting off a few years to fit into a search. It seems that is the unspoken rule for most women online and men now expect it to be the norm.

Spira provides us with her list of dates she had through cyber dating. With over 250 dates in almost 15 years, a few marriage proposals and a divorce from a person she met online, she has experience to choose from. Some are humorous and some are fairly sad. She is still single but wiser. She started in her 30s and into her 50s, on and off.

She admits she was one of those early adapters to the scene. She started in the mid-1990s using the online dating possibilities offered on the Internet.

She sums up her reason for writing this book. “I have learned a lot throughout the course of my nearly 15 years of on-again, off-again cyber-dating experiences. While some of these memories have faded, before sending the others up to Internet Heaven, which is my version of the trash icon on my computer where I send my bad cyber-dates to with a one way ticket, I’ve decided to share them with you.”

In her accounting she lets us share in her dates with The Architect, the Neurologist, and the Plastic Surgeon. In between there was the Art Dealer, the Boy Next Door, The Investment Banker, the Drummer Boy. That is just to name a few.

She also gives us some rules of ‘Netiquette’ we should follow if we are inclined to use the Internet for our dating pool. “We are living in the information at your fingertips mode as the Internet has become part of our daily lives, and we can find out more than we probably want to know.”

She therefore advises you don’t ‘Google’ your date before the first date. One of her dates did and it was a disaster. She found out more about herself than she knew was out there. Also don’t discuss body parts on the first encounter. She had one person she dated who gave her the details of his colonoscopy between the entree and the dessert. When it comes to your profile there should be a cut off rule of five to 10 years on your age and five to 10 pounds on your weight.

Not all cyber-dates were disasters.

This book is a must for this generation of singles, both male and female, who are into cyber-dating. It is possible to find someone if you know the rules.

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.
