MIAMI, Fla. – May 9 (SEND2PRESS NEWSWIRE) — In “Bars Suck! Internet Dating Doesn’t” (ISBN: 9780979514401) published by VMC Press, Jon Rubin takes the reader along on his wild, six-year Internet dating journey. Rubin, who ruefully adopted the title of “Internet Dating Expert,” is an executive producer of network television, founder of Major League Figure Skating, and the owner of a software consulting firm.
His online quest to find “Ms. Right” is the foundation of the book’s true – though sometimes mind-boggling – stories that confirm the old adage that “truth is stranger than fiction.” Ultimately, Rubin’s Internet journey led him to his bride, Marcia. The couple married in 2005 and currently lives in bliss and happiness in South Florida.
Rubin’s research for the book uncovered a startling statistic: when it comes to finding a great relationship, over 99% of singles agree that “Bars Suck.” Yet, for less than the cost of a really good martini, readers will laugh, learn, and possibly cry as Rubin takes them through his incredible Internet dating journey. The author’s mishaps allow readers to avoid a plethora of IDDs (Internet Dating Dangers), including MUI (Meeting Under the Influence), OCOCD (Obsessive-Compulsive Online Chatting Disorder), and FFP (Flying Frozen Poultry).
However, “Bars Suck! Internet Dating Doesn’t” isn’t all laughs. Indeed, Rubin provides the reader with concrete rules and strategies for Internet dating success, as well as a one-year free membership to an online dating site where the reader can practice their newfound skills. He communicates his optimism and belief in the world of Internet dating while offering keen insights into the human emotions and behavior that form the basis for relationships.
Best of all, Rubin manages to be both informative and entertaining, relying on gentle, self-deprecating humor that keeps the reader engaged. In effect, “Bars Suck! Internet Dating Doesn’t” is as much a primer for people who need a dating refresher course as it is an online dating guide.
The book is currently available at most bookstores through Ingram Wholesalers and online at vmcpress.com, amazon.com, and barnesandnoble.com.
