Well this is it. The seventh and final Blog Exclusive sneak peek of my book about online dating FREE LOVE – True Stories of Love and Lust on the Internet which can help you find the like-minded man, woman, couple or DOM of your dreams through online personals.
In case this is your first time here, nearly 40 million singles in America share a personal little secret. They’re using the Internet to look for true love and/or lust online. And they’re not exclusively using the commercial, paid dating sites that have become so prevalent in recent years. A lot of people think that love should be free and opt instead for the wild and wooly approach to online dating – free personals.
FREE LOVE – True Stories of Love and Lust on the Internet presents a collection of actual online ad postings as they originally appeared, along with the intimate stories behind them – all told in the posters’ own words, triumphs, disasters, warts and all. Women Seeking Men, Women seeking Women, Men seeking Women, Men seeking Men, Missed Connections, Casual Encounters – they’re all here and their stories range from the entertaining to the astonishing.
Experience is the best teacher, and thanks to the candid revelations of the people in this book, newbies and seasoned online dating veterans alike can learn a great deal from these real-world experiences, commiserate, draw their own conclusions and decide if online dating is right for them.
We conclude with a hot little story from Casual Encounters that starts with a bang. (Sorry.)
This came to be one night when I had a friend over and we both created ads just as a joke. However, it has garnered some pretty interesting replies. I lost count but I’ve had close to 750 responses or more. Out of those, I’m meeting someone next weekend in Mexico for a four-day vacation/dive trip. (Definitely the most adventurous of my meetings to date!) I’ve also met people through chat rooms. One man from Boston IM’d me asking about Miami as he was to be moving here. This eventually turned into a relationship that lasted quite a while but fizzled due to being so far apart. Another man IM’d me out of the blue one day and we figured out that we lay out at the nude beach in North Miami within 30 feet of one another and said hello every weekend, yet had never met. We briefly dated but it’s evolved into a fabulous relationship and we have been best of friends for about three years now.
I sincerely hope you’ve enjoyed these little glimpses inside my book, which has so far been getting some rather good industry and consumer reviews. FREE LOVE – True Stories of Love and Lust on the Internet is available on Amazon.com and select bookstores and also in (text-only) e-book formats for Kindle, Sony Reader, Apple’s iPad and other e-reader platforms. A complete list can be found on www.FREELOVEontheNET.com.
Even if you’re not currently in the online dating pool yourself, chances are you know someone that is, and could benefit from this book. Please be sure to “Share” the love, and remember that books make great gifts. Thanks for your support!
