Saturday, June 04, 2011 Dating by Drs. Les & Leslie Parrott Dating: finding your right someone online--avoiding the liars, losers, and Dating: finding your right someone online--avoiding the liars, losers, and freaks

My rating: 3 of 5 stars


In this culture where the look of dating is changing, dot.comdating is an almost-pocket-sized handbook to help you work through the myths of online dating, the decision of whether online dating is for you or not, and the questions to ask prior to dating online. I appreciate that this book has helpful information for those looking to date and those like myself who are parents and friends of those dating online. Drs. Les & Leslie Parrott effectively debunk the myths surrounding the online scene and I liked the way the shed light on the truth so that the fear of online dating is removed. The advise they have to offer about how to use the online sites is very helpful and will hopefully enable many singles to have a better experience, saving more heartache and frustration.

Although I found this book very helpful, there were a few points that I flat out disagreed with - specifically their description of true love found on page 36. I would encourage adults to read this book for it's helpful hints, but hope that they filter it through the Word of God and not establish the foundation for their beliefs about relationships on man's relationship techniques. Look to the gospel to see what love looks like and how it should be fleshed out in our daily lives. Then read this to find out how to use a dating site more efficiently.
