“Kissing Frogs in Cyberspace” by Dianne Sweeney (Guest Review)

Kissing Frogs in CyberspaceYou meet up with a guy that you met on an online dating site for the first time.  You notice that he is shorter than he described to you. He said he was four inches taller than your height.  But, he is the same height as you and you are not even wearing heels.  This is a red flag. If he lied about something as noticeable as his height—what else is he going to lie about to you?

Similarly, in “Kissing Frogs in Cyberspace,” Dianne Sweeney discusses the red flags that she has learned when screening potential dates.  Although not written as a “how-to” book, Sweeney’s memoir of the first six months of her online dating quest documents her experience with several online dating services and publishes actual emails from potential suitors.  Through her experiences, we can learn from her lessons in dating and even relate to the dates that are entered into with high hopes but turn out to be duds.  Even though I have been on many similar bad dates as Sweeney, it’s a lot funnier when it’s happening to someone else. Sweeney’s voice is honest, relatable, and humorous—I laughed out loud on public transit while reading her book.  I would definitely recommend this book to all of my friends that are single ladies.

  1. I love this review! The writing was so genius! It made me want to read the book and made it so relateable and I’m not even a girl!

  2. It sounds like a cute book for a married woman to read and get some laughs out of…? I can see myself reading this book and fully enjoying it for the humor in it. Thanks for the in-put on the book!
