Soul Mates, True Stories from the World of Online Dating; Sonali Fernando
Soulmates: True stories from the world of online dating is a fascinating, eye-opening and often riotously funny look at modern Britain through the lens of the oddest form of socialising yet invented - internet dating. Online dating has taken the nation by storm - 7.8 million Brits, that's half the population of British singletons, tried it out last year. Beautifully written and researched by award-winning filmmaker and author Sonali Fernando, Soulmates is a deliciously quirky, perceptive and entertaining read. The book features a unique collection of over a hundred true stories from the frontline of online dating, recounted by some of the brilliant and brainy, imaginative and inspiring people who use leading British dating websites. Cultural history meets personal testimony as Sonali Fernando takes the temperature of modern British relationships. Embracing stories told by online daters aged between 21 and 83 she freewheels through themes ranging from dating disasters to long-distance love affairs, cybercourtship to online lies.
