Jane Coloccia, now 45, spent eight years online dating. That's about 200 dates. Now she is an "expert" at online dating, which means she has a book, of course: Confessions of an Online Dating Addict: A True Account of Dating and Relating in the Internet Age. Coloccia says, "I would go on three or four dates a week. One Sunday I had three dates - brunch, lunch and dinner." It would be safe to say that she loved the attention. "It does get very seductive as it is nice to open up an email and someone to say you are beautiful and they want to meet you," she explains. Anyway, Coloccia says: "My impression before I did this was that the people online were weirdos, but that is just not the case." Wow, really? People online are like, normal? What a revelation! Plus — you're not going to believe this — sometimes married men will post profiles online!
