Improve your love IQ with the help of relationship experts Drs. Les and Leslie Parrott. Learn the inside information you need to know about using dating to find your potential soulmate.

I’ve been married for almost 14 years so I really don’t need to try the online dating scene. But I have a couple friends who have tried it in the past. Although it was back when it was fairly new and the perception was that you were desperate. It seems times have changed according to Dating.

This was a very interesting and easy book to read.  The Parrotts did a very good job in covering the different points of online dating. Most of them are pretty basic and logical.  They dispel myths of online dating, giving the reader points to think about if online dating is right for them, and goes over the questions you should ask before signing up with an online dating site.

There are no revelations in the book. Most of the information is common sense, but it’s a good reminder. There are really no specifics about pros and cons of various websites or a list of highly rated websites—I kind of thought there might be. Where do you even begin looking for a reputable site? Google it? 

According to the book, no. It almost felt like a marketing book with numerous references to their online dating site The entire last chapter is about why they founded the site. 

Even with the self-promotion, it’s a good book to read if you’ve never tried online dating and are leery about it. But once you’ve tried it, the book really won’t be of much help.  I give it a 3-star rating based on that and the marketing aspect.

I received this book free for review from Tyndale House Publishers. I was not required to write a positive review. The opinions I have expressed are my own.
