  1. This sounds like a great book…though I am thrilled that dating is a thing of the past for me.

    I too am off the dating market, but this book sounds interesting enough that I’ll probably read it anywa. Thanks for bringing it to my attention.

  4. I met my husband online. We even met on a dating site, but I actually was using it to meet people in my area but not really looking for dates, and for some reason the site sent me his profile. He was so funny and so like me I had to write and tell him that we could never date but I would love to become friends. We started writing each other daily, became friends, met seven months after our first online message (still to just hang out not to date), realized we wanted to try a long distance thing, got engaged five months after that, married five months after our engagement and will be celebrating out second year of marriage next month. I never read any books. I just kind of lucked out, but I know SOOOOO many women and men who could use a book like that. I hope they all get their hands on it. 🙂 Thanks for sharing.
