Amazon.com Product Description: 'Don't email me if you want a supermodel. I'm twenty-two, divorced, and I have twins. I'm also overweight, unattractive, and have no education to speak of. I'm pretty much not going to bring anything to the table except the fact that I'm pretty nice and won't ask you to pay my bills. Here's my email address. Don't email if you're full of it.'
With this ad, Stephanie Snowe relaunches herself into the world of dating. In this real-life account, she discovers that the search for Mr. Right can include a lot of wrong turns. With light-hearted sass, Stephanie introduces us to each Tom, Dick, and Denny, and their neuroses, pets, mullets, lies, and puking.
A girl can get discouraged having to deal with dive-bombing birds, first-date proposals, and eavesdropping mothers. Is there a knight in shining armor out there with a higher IQ than his horse? Stephanie hopes so.
Internet dating. Dating after divorce. Dating as a single mom. Searching for intelligent life in the land of NASCAR. Can you think of anything more terrifying? Stephanie Snowe not only lived through ALL of that, she wrote the book on it. And I do mean "THE" book, because Meeting Mr. Wrong: The Romantic Misadventures of a Southern Belle, is not just any "true story dating book." It is the book that now sets the standard for all humor essays to follow. Ms. Snowe also sets the bar on how to endure the worst life has to throw at you - and how to do so with grace, wit and intelligence intact.
Don't believe me? Read an excerpt here - but be prepared to laugh your hiney off - you can't say I didn't warn you! Now listen, I know a little about the subject myself so I know of what I speak of here - I met my own husband through internet dating. And I met some real toads before I landed my prince. But I never, ever saw the humor in it until I read this book. But even if you never met anyone over the internet and met your husband or wife at the local beer joint or church social, you owe it to yourself to read this book. As funny as Ellen, Seinfeld and Tina Fey combined, Stephanie Snowe is the next, greatest humor novelist. Don't miss out on her very first book.
Now Ms. Snowe, where is book 2? You did a perfect set up for it at the end of book 1 and left me hanging!
