They show how to choose a screen name, sift through incoming requests, and sound "light and breezy" in ads and replies. The most troubling aspect of this book is that it works counterintuitively to the very essence of online dating. For example, the authors forbid women to take any initiative, telling them to wait 24 hours before responding to e-mail, never participate in Instant Messaging or chat rooms, answer all e-mail in three sentences or fewer of chipper-sounding rhetoric, and stop talking to a man who doesn't ask them out within four messages. Although it makes sense for a couple to go on "date zero" meet in person before they grow too attached, there is a lot the pair can learn from each other by openly corresponding online before dating, the authors' strictures notwithstanding. The "light and breezy" tack will work against a woman seeking a relationship built on communication and trust, and men will feel put off by this seemingly manipulative strategy.
