Book Review - Online Dating Addict

Guest Author - Kristina de la Cal

There is no doubt about it that dating to find “the one” is a lot like trying to find a needle in a haystack. While some people are luckier in love than others, most singles looking for a mate will usually have to go through a long period of trial and error before finding their perfect match. To expedite the process and broaden their dating opportunities, more and more people are trying their luck at online dating services. For author, Jane Coloccia, finding dates online quickly became something of an obsession.

In her book, Confessions of an Online Dating Addict, Jane Coloccia turns her online dating experiences into a series of brief but comical anecdotes about the many frogs she had to kiss before finally meeting her prince. The book begins by explaining how she was first lured into the world of Internet dating by a friend who had found her true love online. Once she began her online dating adventure, Jane Coloccia quickly became hooked and thus began her eight-year-long trial and error process.

The bulk of the book is made up of multiple accounts about her failed online dating encounters. Each frog is given his own chapter with a humorous title that seems to capture her overall view of the guy such as “The Surfer Dude”, “The Phantom”, “The Stalker”, “The Pothead”, and “Mr. Revenge”, among others.

Through these accounts, Jane Coloccia reveals an awful lot about her own personality and admits that she was more attracted to the constant cyber attention she was receiving from men on the web than she was to most of the men she agreed to go out with. In some parts, she comes off as a little too judgmental and later confesses to being a bit of a “dating snob” but despite the occasional hint of arrogance in her writing, the stories she tells are certainly entertaining.

Overall, the book is an easy and amusing read. It offers a lot of insight about what to do and what not to do when it comes to online dating. In the final chapters of the book, Jane Coloccia provides readers with suggestions for how to successfully navigate the slippery slopes of online dating and even includes advice straight from her own therapist’s mouth.

I can see how this book might be helpful to online daters who are interested in learning from someone else’s mistakes so if you are in the market for something along those lines, consider picking up a copy of Jane Coloccia’s confessions.
