Awful book. Embarrassing.

Very funny book that actually had me laughing out loud, which is extremely rare for me.

Getting a little fed up with all the books about bad internet dates though, quite often finding love on the internet works and this book focuses so much on the bad dates and is a little too much as regards to casual sex, seems to promote casual sex with anyone and everyone as being ok.

Also, there were far too many errors in this book, grammar, spelling mistakes etc which is very irritating. Get a better editor! Hence the 3 stars.

I feel hesitant to recommend this book as in many ways it seems to be an account of a rather mean fraud upon men. The author puts out an invitation on the internet which appears to hold some romantic promise, gets men to pay out for very expensive meals out (e.g. at The Ivy) and then goes home to riducule some of them for the purposes of making money from this book. The sexual content was rather thin as was the humour. It does however serve as a bit of a warning to men hence I give it one star. This book should really be titled 'The Freeloading Feminist'. One poor sap even paid for Ms Porter to have a week wining and dining in New York for little or nothing in return.

I absolutely loved this book!!
Not for the fact that it was very direct in (quite a) few places, but for the fact she has nailed the uncertainty & excitement of the whole world of internet dating in one book. Her 'dates' varied from the amazing (Plato) to the hilarious (The Big Bumbino) and you could feel her nervousness as she waited for the blind dates (both men and women!)to arrive and whether she was meeting the people who were portrayed in the exchange of emails & photos!!!

It is a very funny (I actually laughed out loud more than once reading it on the tube), sexy, encouraging & thought provoking account of 6 intense months of Dawn's life and a very good read.
If you like your chick-lit with a dash of sauce.....This is definately the one you should read!!

Well done Dawn, 'Diaries'is a fantastic, hugely enjoyable read and it gave me that rare feeling of sadness you get when you finish a really, really great book - Now, how often do you get to feel that?! Buy it, it's well worth it!!

Dawn Porter's account of her Internet dating adventure is not well written. Her self centered character is off putting. The risky behavior amazingly foolish.... and particularly disturbing in that she promotes herself as an advocate for breast cancer awareness and prevention for young women.... However, her heavy drinking, smoking and gluttonous fatty eating habits completely contradict all that is advised in breast cancer prevention. A terrible role model for such a serious cause.
