Product Description

Review

Tells you everything always wanted to know about men - and were quite right to be afraid to ask. -- India Knight

From the Author

A Q&A with Sean Thomas

1) What made you turn to online dating?

The main reason I tried online dating, is because my editor at men's health magazine, where I was a freelancer, asked me to try it! I'm not sure I would have, if not for that. Because when this happened - three years ago, there was definitely a 'stigma' attached to the process - it was something only desperate people would try. And by definition few people want to admit they are desperate. These days the stigma is fast disappearing, if it still exists at all. Millions of people are doing it. One reason the stigma has nearly gone is that young people - teenagers, even - see nothing weird about making friends and meeting partners on the net. They've grown up with it - it's natural.

2) You classed yourself as "a tiny bit desperate." Had you had problems with relationships in the past?

Ok, so I was a tiny bit desperate, but only as much as anyone single and over thirty is really really keen to get hitched. I'm not sure I've had severe problems with actual relationships before - I've just had severe problems committing within those relationships. In this I am probably like many men - and women too. The book is partly about that - problems with committing, and how you surmount them.

3) You're incredibly honest in recounting your story - some might say too honest. Were you not worried about what people who know you might think?

No. Though when you read the book that may seem surprising! I've always written about myself - I'm used to it now. I'm slightly worried what the cleaning lady might think.

4) Where you in any way surprised by how the internet dating experiment overtook your life.

As I say I didn't think much of the concept beforehand. But when I tried it I found that I liked it - not just for the way you can meet millions of people - but the way you can meet people you wouldn't normally encounter. People from all backgrounds, races, classes, professions. In a normal social life you tend to mix in certain circles, go to certain places, bars, clubs, whatever. There you meet people who go to those kinds of places. On the net you meet... Everyone.

5) Did you learn much about yourself in the writing of the book and the experience of online dating?

I learned that I had to be honest with myself - and any partner. After all a long term partner has to love me for who I really am - not some persona I might like to present, online - or in a singles bar for that matter. Writing the book also taught me about my wants and needs, and about what women might like and dislike in me. And it showed me, maybe, where I had made mistakes in the past. Paradoxically, it also taught me not to regret too much. And that there's always hope. A great lesson to learn.

6) Ultimately do you think the internet has changed the way people relate to one another? In a good or bad way?

I think the internet is an enormous revolution in the way human beings interact - at least as important as the telephone, and possibly as important as writing. You just have to look at the experiences of my transsexual friend Joe, in the book - he's now able to meet partners who want someone like him, through the net. Before the net, that would have been impossible. But it's not just unusual people who benefit from the net, it opens up the world, it opens up the chance of love, to people who are shy, or very choosy, or in a hurry, or stuck in a tiny village, or isolated in some other way. In other words, the net is the best route to love and happiness for most of us - at some point in our lives.

Format: Paperback
I would like to tell Mr. Thomas that I loved his book, and in some small way it changed my life. I've recommended it to all my male friends, although a part of me feels I should also recommend it to all my female friends as well. I enjoyed its honesty, humour, candour and sensitivity. And it gives a 33 year old man hope, hope that one day he will also find love. It also reminded me of what falling in love is like, something easily forgotten when it hasn't happened for a while. Thanks! Nice one Sean! Can I buy you a pint?

Format: Paperback
This was a thoroughly entertaining book. Having just finished Diaries of an Internet Lover, by Dawn Porter, I was very interested to see the same thing again from the male perspective. Being an Internet Dater myself it was inspiring to read how adventurous Porter was but to see how a man might percieve me was also fascinating. Not only fascinating but hilarious to. I can heartfully recomend both of these books to anyone who would like an insight into the minds of two very perceptive individuals. This book is a brilliant read.

With sheer honesty, Sean wrote about his experience being a first-timer as an Internet dater, and through which implore into his sexual and emotional past. This book is both candid and brutally fun to read. As an Asian and being largely conservative, this book is great insight to what kind of apettite of the human mankind! This book is a page-tuner and brilliant entertainment.

Format: Paperback
I read about this in the Sunday Times and immediately bought a copy online - according to the article it would a) "tell men that being themselves is okay" and b) "give women a geniune insight into what it means to be a man in 2006."

So I bought it a) curious to find out whether I was normal and b) to show my girlfriend and prove I was!

So, did it work? Well... It is a brilliant read. It's a really entertaining look at Sean Thomas's lovelife and he seems able to talk about just about everything that's happened in his sexual/emotional past (lots of which is a little to shocking to be discussed on a forum like this.!!!) with incredible honesty. It's really fascinating as women are always talking about their relationships - look at women's glossy magazines - whereas men just don't go into the nitty gritty, other than in terms of listing sexual conquests. And this is far from that. It also has a great human-interest story in that Sean ends up finally finding hapiness in the most unlikley circumstances. That said, there are some things that Sean's done along the way that I certainly haven't and I wouldn't want my girlfriend thinking I was quite as racy as him so... wil I be lending it to her? No way! She'd never speak to me again!

I loved 'Millions of Women are Waiting to Meet You' by Sean Thomas, true story. He writes for a lads mag and is told to research Internet Dating, he does so and it's his account over the year about the highs and lows and some of the 'ladies' that he encountered. Along the way he gets addicted to porn which is very funny!

Format: Paperback
My ex-husband, who has teased me for so long about internet dating passed this to me, although at the time he hadn't yet read it. As a woman who has been dating on-line for a couple of years, on and off, I would have appreciated having read this book before I started! From the beginning, Sean's easy and hilarious style of writing had me hooked and I finished reading it within a weekend. He holds nothing back and informs many of us poor, unsuspecting women as to the pitfalls and, sometimes dodgy, types of people to look out for in the internet dating game. I have recommended it to many of my friends, male and female, who have participated in on-line dating - partly because it's useful to know someone else's detailed perspective on the whole business and also, with regard to my male friends, as it shows that the process seems to have triggered a certain amount of self-reflection in Sean about his emotional side, which I'm sure can only serve to aid his own personal development - one would hope that this may lead other men to do the same!! Brilliant book....

Just come back from holiday where I read this book and thoroughly enjoyed it from start to finish! It's a true insight to how most mens mind think about the opposite sex. (Even though some will refuse to admit it!) Men - If you want a very enjoyable read about the trials and tribulations of one mans sex life, read it. Women - If you want to know the male equivalent to 'men are from mars women etc', read it!

I've only read upto to his second date and I can't stop laughing, which makes reading it difficult. But if you are male and date, love, loved, lost or explored the world on online dating GET THIS BOOK! It is fantastic and makes you feel like your not alone and all the odd bizarre things you do in the name of love and lust are common place amongst your male associates!

You are not alone, yet you are, so very, very alone.
