Finally, the software gods have rescued us from our stalled, confused love lives by giving us so many new ways to meet, connect, and share what we want, feel, and mean. Or have they? Dating has never been simple, but in an age of IMs, text messages, e-mails, and BlackBerry notes, it can be an absolute minefield. How can you accurately judge a guy's potential when all you have to go on is his punctuation? What's the best way to maintain your witty, sassy rapport once you've decided to leave the safety of techno-anonymity and take your relationship off-line? When do you remedy a techno-gaffe or know if it's too early to hit send? And how can you gauge his feelings without seeing his body language or even hearing his voice?

Enough is enough. In The Joy of Text, real-life cyber-Cyrano Kristina Grish establishes hard and fast rules to help modern women navigate their love lives via technology; offers invaluable tips on how to analyze text, timing, and tone; and provides advice on etiquette in an age when the handwritten thank-you note is all but obsolete.

Book Description SIMON SCHUSTER, United States, 2007. Paperback. Condition: New. Language: English . This book usually ship within 10-15 business days and we will endeavor to dispatch orders quicker than this where possible. Brand New Book. Dating has never been simple, but in an age of IMs, text messages, e-mails, and BlackBerry notes, it can be a minefield. In The Joy of Text, Kristina Grish, a self-confessed cyber Cyrano, provides strategic lessons on using technology as a modern dating tool to find, woo, and win the right guy-and weed out the wrong ones.How can you accurately judge a guy s potential when all you have to go on is his punctuation and-if you re lucky-a grainy, pixilated photo? Grish shows readers how to analyze text, timing, and tone in order to dissect the subtle nuances of online communication. She provides an overview of the online meat market, from general dating sites such as to niche routes based on religion or common interests, and gives advice on how to post a sexy yet realistic profile, choose the right picture, and declare your intentions, whether you re looking for a booty call or a serious commitment. The Joy of Textfeatures tips on techno-flirting and hints on developing the relationship in the real world once you ve established online compatibility. And there are remedies for mixed messages and techno-gaffes, plus a crash course in online ethics (is it okay to cut and paste an IM, or forward a steamy e-mail to 129 of your closest friends?). Smart, timely, and guaranteed to turn you into a cyberdating pro (rather than a big old dork), this is the guide you need to make sure you never hit send too soon again.
