‘From Seattle to London, for over four years, Kate Bergstrom has helped and entertained people with her blog, Now, in her first book, she is going to share all that she has learned after going on dates with over 100 men! Kate has come up with 12 of her most important online dating lessons that people new to online dating, or those that just need a refresher, will find extremely helpful. In addition to the tips, Kate has included some of her own personal stories, — some of which have never been released! — to illustrate why her pointers are so invaluable. Every online dater, from the brand new to the love veteran, will find something to help them in their journey toward finding online love.’

Kate has been deep in the online dating community for over four years. After she found that her friends and family were living vicariously through her stories, she started where she chronicled her dates, one man at a time. In addition to the dates, the site now features a podcast, dating advice, restaurant and bar reviews and dating tales from guest authors. With the success of her website, Kate has been featured on two dating websites in the United Kingdom, several television and radio stations in Seattle, Marketplace Money on NPR where she discussed the financial aspects of online dating, and a variety of podcasts.
