Abbreviated Transcript of Interview with Julie Spira

Eric Michaels: Why did you write the Perils of Cyber-dating?

Julie Spira: I thought about writing this years and years ago and I never did. I was an early adopter of the Internet and I had so many stories that I wanted to share that went back to 1994, when I created my first online dating profile. Since that time I had a lot of success as I went on 250 dates but on the downside I met a guy that I married and divorced, so I really wanted to teach other singles how to spot the red flags and also encourage them to have a sense of humor about the process.

Eric Michaels: What is an irresistible online dating profile?

Julie Spira: I view online dating and looking for love online similar as you create your rock star resume & looking for your dream job so it needs a catchy screen name and great photos to capture attention in a split second. It is really crowded in the digital playing field so if you have a catchy screen name and a great photo just to start with so when a man or woman is scanning through thousands of thousands of photos it will grab their attention just like a great headline in a newspaper.

Eric Michaels: What are common mistakes that men make in online dating?

Julie Spira: Men make a lot of mistakes.  You would be surprised. The biggest mistake they make and don't realize it is they will scan and pick out fifty women that are brand new that they really like and they will create this introduction about themselves and they will copy and paste it to all fifty people like they are gunshotting it. And as a results this woman sees this email in her inbox and it says nothing about her it refers to nothing about her profile and she really feels he never read her profile. So, we don't want to feel like we are being spammed by men and they are just waiting to see who responds first...
