Marian Moore, M.A. writes under the pen name of Addison DeWitt.
She has been an educator, lecturer, counselor and writer… and a long time, on and off online dater. No degrees or professional training or experience were enough to be prepared for the journey into the strange new world of meeting on the internet. It was after years of listening, observing and being there that the manuscript was able to begin. It was with considerable patience and a sturdy constitution that the material could be put together and presented as a collection of humor, poignancy and coincidences.
The idea of the book was to write as if for everyone online, for there is some of everyone’s experience in each account. There was never any direct intention to interview or collect stories. They just happened. The author is no longer dating online and is spending time helping others tell their stories and trying to make the adventure a little more fun.
