See the good and bad of Evan Marc Katz's advice.

So I’m an unusual messenger for a number of reasons, not in the least of the fact that I love online dating. I mean I was like I’m that one guy who was like man, I love that crap. I moved to LA, I was 24-25 years old. I was a writer. I worked from home, wasn’t big on the club or the bar scene.

This book offers a biblical view of relationships, nd discusses attraction, first dates, commitment, and more. So far the best book I've read on Christian relationships. I cannot tell u how this book, after its starter I KISSED DATING GOODBYE helped me stay sexually pure until marriage. Well worth the read to invest in your relationship hearing it from a Christian guy's point of view (who was a bad boy) hehe.

It's official: There is no longer a stigma associated with Internet dating. It's true. We promise. Nearly 50 million Americans have tried it. That means roughly half of the single adult population has filled out an online dating profile or has at least browsed a few personal ads, just to see who's out there. Quickly disappearing are the days of awkward setups and random encounters. Today's singles simply post a profile on a handful of dating websites, then sit back and wait for the dates to roll in. Well, that's the idea anyway. The reality is that most people slap together vague and uninspired dating profiles and quickly become disillusioned when "the one" doesn't respond the next day. In I CAN'T BELIEVE I'M BUYING THIS BOOK, Internet dating expert Evan Marc Katz, a former MatchNet consultant and avowed online dater, demystifies the world of Internet dating. He offers practical advice on choosing the right dating website, writing eye-catching profiles, striking up that first email "conversation," turning a first date into a second, and much more. Equal parts how-to guide and inspirational pep talk, I CAN'T BELIEVE I'M BUYING THIS BOOK is like having a chat with a good friend, in this case, a hysterically funny, insightful friend who tells it like it is while remaining cheerfully optimistic about the universal quest for love. Whether you're an online dating junkie or a complete newcomer, an enthusiastic twentysomething or a been-there-done-that divorcée, this irreverent and intelligent guide will teach even the most jaded single how to master the dating game and find true love online.

I was disappointed by this book. People who are reading all the glowing reviews on here should consider who the reviewers are and should know that this book isn't for everyone. I bought it because I thought it would be useful to get a male perspective on Internet dating. Evan Katz is a likable guy with a self-effacing humor and a breezy, engaging writing style. But women, especially over 35, should know that this book is mostly geared toward guys and giving them advice on how to land dates with attractive women.

Katz seems to have a distorted view of what online dating is like for women. He says that a woman can put a profile up and have literally hundreds of men writing to her the first week. "Suddenly a woman has a mountain of men waiting at her doorstep like the paparazzi outside Brad and Jennifer's mansion." What planet is he on??? That isn't my experience or that of the women I know. There is nothing in this book for us, except maybe that we should set our sights on 60-year-old men, because they are the only ones likely to be interested in us anyway! Katz would have done well to consult some women besides the apparently hot young babes he has dated.

People who are new to online dating will probably get more out of the book than those already in the game. I mean, I already knew you had to put up attractive, smiling photos and write a creative, original profile. Unless you're a man or a woman under 30, save your money.

I'm a CyberRomance Coach, so I try to keep up with the books that are coming out about Internet Dating. I had four come in the mail from Amazon this week. I was not very optimistic about the quality of the four, since most of what is getting printed is pretty bad - very thin on the information department, usually just a rehash of what has already been printed, and poorly written as well.
Imagine my surprise and delight at Evan Marc Katz's "I Can't Believe I'm Buying This Book: A Commonsense Guide to Successful Internet Dating"! My pencil was flying as I underlined Katz's unique points on page after page. I found new stuff in every chapter.
This guy knows what he is talking about. Katz used to be the customer consultant at AmericanSingles and JDate. And it sounds as if he has been at times certifiable as an Internet Dating Junkie. He knows the big dating sites and he knows about profiles - Wow! Does he know profiles! Katz gives the best profile advice I have seen, short of what I do myself. Plus he's funny and writes reasonably well.
Katz has a couple of weak spots - he's young (the cover says he's 31) and while he has been an energetic Online dater, he has yet to meet the love of his life, online or otherwise - though he did fall in love for the first time. He really hasn't got much to add for the over 50 crowd, a huge segment of CyberDaters, other than the good advice he gives for your online presentation and for dating in general. Katz's book is clearly "A Commonsense Guide to Successful Internet Dating" - it's about dating, not necessarily about finding the love of your life. He's great at that, the hands down expert, as far as I am concerned. Katz's answer to everyone's question "Does Internet dating work?" is a clear and unqualified "Yes!" But if you want assurance that you will find the love of your life via the Internet, you will not find it here.
Katz also asserts that he founded the first online dating consulting service E-Cyrano in 2003. He and I need to talk, since I have been online as a CyberRomance coach since 2002. But let's not split hairs - Katz has written a GREAT Internet dating book, and it's going to the top of my Amazon Listmania recommendations. Congratulations, Evan!
And I am not even going to tell you the names of those other books.

Evan Marc Katz considers himself the expert on online dating by doing a lot of it. Sure, there are worse qualifiers for writing a book on something than doing it a lot, but given how many women he dated before marrying, I'm not sure this is a recommendation for his relationship and relating skills. As a woman, if you find it helpful to be logically told why your emotions are unhelpful in a situation, you may find great value in this fellow's advice. He certainly has an impressive ego, using the argument "You should listen to me, single women, because I'm the kind of amazing man you'd want to date." Maybe I'm being petty, but it kinda bugs me how he regularly blogs about how much less intelligent his wife is than himself, yet how he loves her despite this. Perhaps I should give the book two stars, because some people do seem to like his work and it doesn't appear to do harm, other than the hour or so of your life you'll never get back while he talks about the obvious over and over.

But ultimately, I'm going to stand by the one star, because if you're going to plunk down some money and spend time, you can get so much more. For some great, holistic, balanced, and helpful dating advice, try Matthew Hussey's "Get the Guy" or Allison Armstrong's "In Sync with the Opposite Sex". They both offer extraordinary dating and relationship advice that honors the depth of human spirit. Their work transmits the quality of inspiration and, in addition to offering amazing dating suggestions, will support you in many areas of your life. Both these writers offer huge amounts of free content, so you can see whether they're a fit for you. I just don't see any reason to pay for obvious and repetitive advice from someone like Katz, when there are exceptional offerings out there.

Just finished this thing from cover to cover and I gotta tell ya, the things mentioned in the book ARE commonsense. Have a question about something related to online dating? Use Google instead (or whatever search engine you prefer). This book was published in like 2002 when Yahoo Personals was still available, which explains why his critique on current dating websites are obsolete. Online dating is A LOT more competitive now than it was 10 years ago and techniques like "end your message with a joke" are really commonsense. Katz should've gave more specific examples on creativity by using more sample letters, etc. Again, use a search engine--it'll save you time and money, which can be spent on a Double-Double at In-N-Out if you are reading from the West Coast.
