Sadly, that wasn't enough to make me rate this shallow bit of nonsense more than 1 Star, so let's focus on Goldblum some more : ) 3 down - 2 to go.
I was quickly captured by her first person narrative that managed to engage (and not pander to) her audience in exploring her quest for her perfect match.
Partly because I like funny lady memoirs, partly because I’m always into people who are smart enough to game things—especially Internety things, b I met my boyfriend online.
When people are skeptical or amazed by this (especially my friends who do date online and haven’t had much luck) I tell them that online dating is easy.
Partly because I like funny lady memoirs, partly because I’m always into people who are smart enough to game things—especially Internety things, because that requires a much higher level of math than my brain can fathom—and partly because I wanted to know how Webb was successful with online dating, since I’ve also been successful with it.
All in all, Webb’s book is a really great read: honest, funny, sad at times, and really really smart. And then she conversed with other women on the site as a guy for “research” which bordered on Catfish for me.
Almost as mean-spirited as her merciless mocking of these women's profiles, who never intended to put themselves out there for such a purpose.
...abide by these things called "ethics" - which would not allow duping all those women because you can't get a man.
In her listing of 72 traits she wants in her ideal man, she makes her values clear.
And trust me when I say there's nothing wrong with being drug out to the ballgame a few times a year. She has a whole bunch of fun crunchy math stuff, like with equations and things, but I don't really see any evidence that her 'gaming' of online dating made much difference at all.
