I liked your profile experiences in gay online dating

If you've ever felt out of place as a gay man, I Liked Your Profile will let you know you are not alone.

Davies, Scott is the author of 'I Liked Your Profile Experiences in Gay Online Dating', published 2005 under ISBN 9780595365883 and ISBN 0595365884.

I Liked Your Profile: Experiences In Gay Online Dating is a brutally honest look into one man's four-year journey through online dating.

I Liked Your Profile exposes a number of patterns and behaviors to be aware of when corresponding with people online.

but where the author fails miserably is in adding a personal touch, perspective, emotion or a sliver of himself.

The author chose to focus solely on the characters by writing tirades of facts and though some call for humor, there's none to be found anywhere in the book.

Don't waste your time with this book; there are others out there that combine humor, wit, sarcasm and truth about online dating - at least they're more entertaining than this one. Unfortunately, most men, gay or straight will tell you what you want to hear but have their own selfish disires instead. After the end of his long term relationship, which shockingly lasted more than a decade, I Liked Your Profile - Experiences in Gay Online Dating tells the story of a thirty-something man's attempt to find a new relationship using online dating services.

To get some insight into what women go through on these dating websites, I pulled aside one of my family members who I knew had spent some time on these sites looking for her future spouse.

This book gives one a good example on what to expect if they choose to do on line dating. It wasn't too wordy and got right to the point of each story.

I found I had a hard time putting it down once I started reading.

When I opened the package, my eyes didn't know where to focus on the front cover - too busy, too many colors and too much at once; then I understood the reason: the cover is designed by the author.

The book is divided into chapters named after each man's encounter the author had with the various characters; by the third chapter, the theme was the same: the man was not representative of his profile on some cyber-board, the personality is diametrically opposed from what is portrayed online etc....
