Thanks to Data, a Love Story, their odds just got a whole lot better. Her world of internet dating is as gruesome as the one I remember, but with spreadsheets in hand she decides to "game the system." Early in the book she dates widely, trying to meet her familial obligations as well as play the numbers.
And trust me when I say there's nothing wrong with being drug out to the ballgame a few times a year. She has a whole bunch of fun crunchy math stuff, like with equations and things, but I don't really see any evidence that her 'gaming' of online dating made much difference at all.(I have to wonder how I would have rated some of my online dates...how would the guy who asked if I would like to kiss his butterfly tattoo rate? but I'm doing the library's "romance" challenge in order to score a new coffee mug and this was a suggested selection that I had not already read and one that didn't have a waiting list as long as my arm, so I decided to give it a shot. and more importantly, that people (beside their friends and family members) would ever be interested in said story???? I get pissed off with authors/reviewers who want to game the system at Goodreads for crying out loud. It reminded me of the gazillions of teeny-bopper flicks that have the "ugly duckling" makeover reveal . Someone who's desperate and hoping some random tips from a stranger will help them hook a big fish on e-Harmony???? She has a whole bunch of fun crunchy math stuff, like with equations and things, but I don't really see any evidence that her 'gaming' of online dating made much difference at all. She really only changed her profile from a resume format into something much more approachable (you know, into one that another human being might actually want to talk to), and dropped a wad of cash on a new haircut, some make-up, and new clothes in order to make her not so frumpy. I have no clue what type of person would enjoy this book. Well, this was a very sweet story, but I don't think the author is taking her own advice that correlation does not equal causation.So when I heard about Data, A Love Story I was immediately intrigued.Partly because I like funny lady memoirs, partly because I’m always into people who are smart enough to game things—especially Internety things, b I met my boyfriend online.When people are skeptical or amazed by this (especially my friends who do date online and haven’t had much luck) I tell them that online dating is easy.Partly because I like funny lady memoirs, partly because I’m always into people who are smart enough to game things—especially Internety things, because that requires a much higher level of math than my brain can fathom—and partly because I wanted to know how Webb was successful with online dating, since I’ve also been successful with it.We at Online Dating try to help you in your quest by selecting the best dating books available and summarizing them for you - their content, their strengths, weaknesses and unique features.There are, as in everything else, poor written books with rubbish and untested advice in them and we will help you avoid that and get straight to meeting that hot chick/guy you've been secretly dreaming about.
