Every day, thousands of people sign-up for online dating services, with the hope of finding the best long-time companion. Yet for people over years-old, online dating is very different and more fast-paced from those experienced by younger people. Based on his two years of online dating experience in South Florida, primarily in Palm Beach County, Epstein takes you on his personal and often flawed journey into who he met, what he saw, the mistakes he made, what he learned, and even an exceptionally honest account of a relationship that went from being a love affair into a tragic love affair literally overnight.

I sometimes read dating memoirs. I was [younger than I am now] and he was [cool to me]. I am 24 years old, and I only know what I know now.
Katie Heaney has written the most compelling dating memoir of the last few years, and it's all about not dating. The book resists pretty much all of the stock narratives about singlehood that romantic comedies, women's magazines and the like have led us to expect. Heaney certainly has crushes, and wants to fall in love one day, but her book isn't about her search for a special someone. Nor is it about rejecting romance as totally unimportant.
