Julie Spira ’79, The Perils of Cyber-Dating: Confessions of a Hopeful Romantic Looking for Love Online (Morgan James Publishing, 2009)
In this memoir Spira shares often funny tales about the more than 250 online-originated dates she’s been on in the last 15 years, including the marriage proposals and the actual marriage (which ended in divorce) that came from them. She tells of her dating disasters as well as the more happy outcomes, and shares tips about cyberdating, including her “Top Ten Rules of Netiquette in Cyber-Dating.”
Spira, who lives near Los Angeles, is an entrepreneur and hosts the weekly radio show Ask the Cyber-Dating Expert. The book has received a lot of media attention since it came out in February.
