I am so romantic that some could argue my views on love are unrealistic but if I am unrealistic it would imply that I somehow need to settle for something less than what I want and deserve and I don’t think anyone should ever settle and by settle I don’t mean compromise I just mean settle.
Since I do a lot of dating through the Internet I recently got a book called “The Daternet” which was written by Courtney Lauren Kanner and Jeremy Stephen Howard and it looks at Internet dating from the perspectives of men and women which it turns out are opposite. Who knew?
It is a funny and brutally honest look at dating online and I found myself looking around when I read it because it was as if they had been watching me date. You can get it on Amazon and I highly recommend it for anyone who has ever been on an online date or plans to ever go on one.
It is my new online dating guide and I hope I can get through a date without pulling it out as a reference guide during dinner. This book showed me it is time for an intervention. I need help and when a nice Jewish woman wants to meet a nice Jewish man there is one place to go.
The time has come for me to accept the obvious. If I really want to meet my Beshert I need to befriend the enemy and for those of you who read my blog on a regular basis you know that the enemy is JDate. It’s time to suck it up and make peace.
I need to embrace JDate and therefore I ask the powers that be at JDate to help me. Step in and show me what I’m doing wrong and how I can increase my chances for love. I read your success stories and it’s working for a lot of people so there is no reason it could not work for me.
By working for other people of course I mean that I want proof. Who are these people? Has anyone ever met them? Are they actors from Russia that we would never run into on the street to ask them about their getting together? I’m going to need proof.
