Mike Montgomeryhost, "Matinee Madness"WBGZ Radio Rose Thornton gives an HONEST, hard hitting look at internet dating.
It's not all peaches and cream as some may think or hope it to be.
If nothing else, she’ll admire the fact that you took the time to “get to know” her.
Thornton shreds the veil of Internet dating and takes the reader on a sometimes dark odyssey of 70 first dates.
Or if you feel compelled to bring it up, say something like, “I’m not interested in meeting anyone else online. Trust us, she’s getting a boatload of uninspiring messages like “Hi, how are you?
” and “You’re gorgeous, I’d love to chat.” If you want to get her attention, try doing something a bit more personal.
This is a book by the brave for the brave who want to be open to new relationships but not get tremendously hurt in the process.
Rosemary bares her soul in the experiences and feelings that she shares from the journal she kept while dating dozens of guys met online.
If you want honesty, sincerity and a few laughs thrown in for good measure then you NEED to read this book. You may also find yourself crying right along with the author at times.
Rose really does give an insiders view on the thoughts, hopes and dreams of a lonely soul on the journey to searching for that one perfect love to come along.
A must read for anyone who has ever felt that life just plain sucks for those who are less then beautiful. Thornton correctly speaks of all the pain in internet dating - I know, I've been there from the other side of the aisle.
