All It Takes Is ONE 29 Jan. 2013
By Alabama Whirley - Published on
Format: Paperback
Laurie makes a point in her book - in fact, as part of the Love at First Click Commandments (to read before you even begin your foray into online dating) - to remember that "It only takes one". As in, it only takes one great match to make the effort worth it. After reading her book, I want to add a few other "ones" that made me a Love at First Click believer:

- One hour - one hour of reading this book was all it took for me to get off the couch and back into the online dating world. Laurie swiftly debunks the myths and provides exactly the right practical insight, with a healthy dose of positive thinking, to inspire me to get back on the horse.
- One profile - Laurie does a great job of breaking down the features, pros, and cons of many of the major sites, so it was easy to determine where I fit best. I'm way too busy to waste time, like most people these days, so her guidance was incredibly helpful. Also, her tips on how to write the perfect profile really made me feel confident with the one I put out there.
- One week - Perhaps I'm an exception, but one week on the site was all it took to feel I'd earned back the 6 month membership fee to the site I had chosen. Laurie's sound advice and insights on what to look for, how to craft a profile, and how to communicate better on the site were invaluable -- I found a fantastic few matches already, and have even have a repeat (3 weeks later, we're going on our 5th date this week!)
- One book - I referred back to the book several times throughout the process of getting started and keeping my online dating "game" en pointe -- Laurie knows her stuff!

An update: Exactly one month after the first date, my click match and I are exclusive ;)

Didn't quite click with me 4 Aug. 2013
By RealDeal - Published on
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I bought the book after reading a review in Elle magazine, that also featured several other How To dating books. I liked the idea of it and I did get some good info on how to setup a good profile, what to say and how to go about starting an email dialog and not to get discouraged etc. But I have to agree with another reviewer when they said;

"However, there are too many references to stilettos and specific gadgets. The easy, breezy, cool girl about the city voice didn't resonate with me, and product placement mentions are off putting. I realize that this is part of trying to convey a certain vibe, but I just found it irritating".

Being an introvert there were a lot of suggestions that didn't appeal to me either. I'm not one to go all out to impress someone, I like to keep it real and be relaxed when I meet someone for the first time. I don't fully buy into the whole first impressions hype, sometimes they can be misleading. Shinny on the outside, rotten on the inside.
The "working" it atmosphere of the book doesn't fit my personality or style either and I feel she didn't address or give suggestions for the different personality types that are out there. At least a few would of been helpful.

The book is more geared towards women and men who live a certain life style, are extremely social, extroverted and work in the white collar corporate world. Which is fine if we all lived like that.

Over all it was a well thought out book but for a certain type and group of people. It just fell short of my expectations and I don't think it will appeal to people who don't live the "Sex in the City" life style.

It's a chick-lit book. 15 Mar. 2013
By bethaboo - Published on
Format: Paperback
Most of the advice is consistent with other dating advice books, with the twist of specifically pointing out the differences between online approaches and old fashioned face to face chance meeting approaches.

However, there are too many references to stilettos and specific gadgets. The easy, breezy, cool girl about the city voice didn't resonate with me, and product placement mentions are off putting. I realize that this is part of trying to convey a certain vibe, but I just found it irritating.

Still, it's worth a read. Unlike "The Rules" (and related books) the author does not focus of you changing your whole look to attract "The One", or being disingenuously coy. The focus is on practical directions and techniques for online presentation, and the etiquette for how to comport oneself in the online dating world. The author explains how to navigate your way to getting the most out of a site, based on how it matches people. She includes examples on how to conduct a useful email exchange (and how not to).

Fast times and modern highs 30 Mar. 2013
By ThirstyBrooks - Published on
Format: Paperback
"Love @ First Click" does a breathless job of updating on line dating advice from the boring, patient days of e-mail to the modern mobile world. The extensive advice hits the mark well, though it's not much different in principle from the advice in Evan Katz' older "I Can't Believe I'm Buying This Book." The fundamental advice in both books focuses on the asynchronous posts in the "fishing" stage of online dating. Both offer good advice on organizing and writing an appealing profile. Katz does a better job with detailed writing style advice. Davis does a better job of putting the process in context and organizing your overall impression.

The book makes clear that in large cities today's dating sites provide tremendous traffic and many daters can find themselves overbooked with choices. This depends on the way you run your life. I'm old enough to be uncomfortable with advice on romantic entanglements with more than one person at a time. Davis' advice usually avoids this perspective, but not always. People had a presumption against multi-threading their love life when Katz wrote, so I liked his book better. But I gave Davis the same four-star rating because I think she may be a better match for some groups of people in their 20s.

[Practical note after more experience: On line dating gave me great matches faster than I could handle. I ended up choosing somebody before I was anywhere near finished with the list of good choices available. Even if Davis advice seems awkward, think about how you would handle those situations.]

Katz also offers new and practical advice for coordinating texting and other social media with dating sites. Most of it is common sense, but the point of a book like this is to reassure you that (a) there's nothing surprising here you haven't thought of and (b) yes people will notice if you're lazy about some of the steps.

If you're involved in online dating and you haven't read one of these books, visit your public library and see if you're missing anything. If people have complained that your profile isn't up to snuff, then plunk down some money at the cash register (You're here on Amazon, after all) and get to work.

Best wishes for success in finding the love of your life!

Great advice I wish I found sooner! 13 Jan. 2013
By JohnAdamus - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition
I saw this book advertised on Twitter, and initially thought it wasn't for me - after all, I have a dating profile and know my way around a conversation. But the price and the idea of improving my dating life were too great to pass up, and I'm glad I gave this book a chance.

Without ever making me feel guilty or stupid, Laurie's words showed me both exactly what I was doing wrong as well as why what I thought was working really wasn't. Impressed by the first few chapters, I went ahead and gave it the ultimate test - rewriting my dating profile AND starting a new profile on a second site. Laurie's advice walked me through every step of the way, and kept me from making the mistakes that kept me from getting into good conversations and setting up successful dates. It's only been two days, and already I've had more targeted, interested responses to both profiles than I had in my first three months of online dating. Consider me a skeptic converted.

If you're on the fence about this book, or frustrated about how your dating life is turning out lately, do yourself a favor and give this book a chance. You will not regret it.
