Why are we so often attracted to people who are so obviously wrong for us? How do we find that one person we are destined to love and be loved by for the rest of our lives? Can the Internet really help? Answers to these and many other questions you may have asked yourself at one time or another are the subject of Douglas Alan Weiss’, Life, Love & Internet Dating. Loosely modeled on Robert Pirsig’s Zen and the Art of Motorcycle Maintenance, Life, Love & Internet Dating explores truths about human relationships, those we have with ourselves, with others and with that higher being we sometimes refer to as God, through the lens of Internet dating. It is at once a personal journey and a deeply nuanced investigation of life and the conditions of happiness and fulfillment men and women seek as they move though their lives.
The reviews are in…
"This semi-autobiographical exploration of internet dating is an easy read and well worth the attention of "those who have been kicked in the heart" as well as the single traveler. Flavored with wisdom born of life experience, self-deprecating humor and kernels of practical information for those seeing to find that significant other, this resource guarantees a hopeful and surprising conclusion for our "universal, shared human experience."
Bill Hedrick, Clinical Member, AAMFT (American Association of Marriage and Family Therapy) D. Min. (Doctor of Ministry) Union Theological Seminary
"An emotionally naked work, that invites the reader on a journey to explore the complexity of human connection through a prism that masterfully engages the heart, mind and spirit."
Alvean Lyons, M.Ed, BCPC Relationship Expert
"It's a must read for those seeking a loving relationship, and for those who already have one."
Barbara Hamm-Lee, Host of Another View WHRV FM & Chair of NRHA
Doug Weiss lives in the Tidewater region of Virginia in a charming but aging beach cottage occupied by hundreds of spirits that inhabit his bookshelves and a cat who does not live there but appears irregularly with proprietary demands for chunky peanut butter and the occasional saucer of milk. Doug has spent much of his life in radio and television as a producer, a senior executive in public media, and as a producer of internet content. He was responsible for web development for one of the country's leading consumer facing web sites and has studied social media and the use of online media in fostering relationship for over two decades. Doug's writing career began in college with a poetry scholarship to the prestigious Aspen' Writer's Workshop and has since included several works on technology, psychology and love. When he is not writing-he can usually be found hiking, sailing or sitting on the beach- book in hand and a glass of wine nearby.
