The Online Dating Rules For Women

Many people have probably heard of the bestseller "The Rules," a book written by Ellen Fein and Sherrie Schneider in 1995 that taught women about the do's and don'ts of dating. However, with the trend in people turning to online dating, Ellen and Sherrie have come up with yet another hit read, "The Rules for Online Dating." This book is a must have for any girl looking for Mr. Right on the world wide web - after all, finding the man of your dreams in such a monstrous frenzy has literally become like trying to find a needle in a hay stack!

Answers For All Questions!

Online dating can be extremely daunting, especially for those new to the scene. "The Rules for Online Dating" answers many of the questions that come to mind when we think about online dating, including questions such as: Should I post my picture? What should my ad say? Should I try and force the relationship from email to phone? What's a good length of time before meeting my match? The book goes through a series of do's and don'ts that will hopefully cull out the "maybes", revealing the right man for you.

The List Of Rules

All online dating rules listed in the book are based on three premises: A man must initially feel a spark for the woman; the man must pursue the woman; and all men love a challenge. There are sixteen rules in all, including how to create a good screen name, post a smiling photo, wait 24 hours to respond, and never email someone a second time if he neglects to respond to your email initially. All rules are explained using scenarios as well as offering advice on what to do in those awkward situations.

Could This Be The Secret To Success?

"The Rules For Online Dating" book appears to be based around traditional methods of using basic male courtship to cull out the winners. However, in the 21st century such a method may also allow one to skim over Mr. Right based on the more feministic view of the equality of the sexes. For instance, say a potential Mr. Right happens to be shy. A rule such as "don't offer your phone number first" may eliminate the possibility of a meeting between your ever taking place, since he might be waiting for you to offer your cell number to him! Because of this, keep in mind that "The Rules for Online Dating" book may not be fool proof. However, it may offer suggestions to help online daters to cull out the weirdoes, the rude, and the down-right obnoxious.
