This is the second part of Sarah Richardson's trilogy on online dating, and it deals a lot with the proper etiquette that should apply in this model of dating. I think that many of the points she has highlighted are not only relevant for online dating but are also useful in the conventional style of dating. According to her, the key to being successful and finding lasting romance /love online is to be confident in who you are, know exactly what you want in a partner, and present yourself well. She advices further that online dating should be seen as "an adventure, an opportunity full of potential to meet new people and the possibility to find true love"
This book addresses useful topics like preparing your profile, communication skills, tips on making a good first impression, the first date and mistakes to avoid on that date etc. I liked the section on ideas for a second date, and found it very useful.
A very practical book that highlights simple things that one can do to ensure a successful online romance.
A great book which I recommend strongly

Anyone who has ever turned to the internet in the hope of finding “the one” will know that you are stepping into a virtual maze. A small fish in a huge pond if you will. There are so many people in one place and you may ask yourself “ How am I going to stand out among everyone else”?
If you find yourself nodding at the above phrases then this book is for you.
Sarah Guides the reader through every step of the process from deciding on how to construct a profile, to how to dress for a first date and how to go about organising a second date.
One thing I found really endearing is that the author urges the reader to be honest and to treat your date the way you would wish to be treated. Too many people regard the online world as a separate entity where manners do not exist.
If you are even thinking about looking online for love I would highly recommend you read this book first. It will help you avoid the many pitfalls that appear in the online dating world and it will mean that your road to love is less rocky than most
