Data, A Love Story is a rallying cry for every woman who has been told to settle.
While her goal was to find a husband, I think it does criticize the crazy notion that, in this day and age, any mate is better than going alone. 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.
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.
Here's the problem I have with memoirs - why do average Joes think their story is the one that should be told . Amy Webb delivers a poignant, honest portrayal of the modern search for love.
Date after horrific date leads her mathematically inclined brain to come up with a rating formula.
Not well I'm sure.) She decides to use reason and logic to weed out the men who would never make her happy. Here's the problem I have with memoirs - why do average Joes think their story is the one that should be told . This book is supposedly about a woman who managed to "game" the system of online dating in order to land herself a hubby. Webb came off as a pathetic, jealous schoolgirl who thought it was soooooo unfair that all the pretty girls were getting "likes" instead of her . Oh, and I can't forget to mention the author has been with her spouse a whopping 8 years. Not compromising about some simple things like your spouse enjoying sports (or whatever the case may be) because you fear that will leave you with "too many Sundays" spent by yourself. It seemed to me she pretty much got lucky and fell in love with the first guy she went out with after she rewrote her profile. but I'm doing the library's "romance" challenge in order to score a new coffee mug and this was a suggested selection that I had not already read and one that didn't have a waiting list as long as my arm, so I decided to give it a shot. and more importantly, that people (beside their friends and family members) would ever be interested in said story???? I get pissed off with authors/reviewers who want to game the system at Goodreads for crying out loud. It reminded me of the gazillions of teeny-bopper flicks that have the "ugly duckling" makeover reveal . Someone who's desperate and hoping some random tips from a stranger will help them hook a big fish on e-Harmony???? 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. 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. Try doubling that and then adding on a few more to grow on and still end up feeling like you don't have your shit together half the time. Just wait 10 or 15 years and you'll be thankful for those couple of free hours on the weekend. The only saving grace for this story were the author's admitted love for George Michael . Useful advice that exists in the book:1) try to look hot in Well, this was a very sweet story, but I don't think the author is taking her own advice that correlation does not equal causation.
