About the author
David Armaan is a freelance writer/composer who has a keen interest in optimal human development. His formal education is in journalism and clinical psychology. He has been a relationship therapist for seven years and an interested observer of the impact the Information Age has had on our dating habits. He observes that traditional family institutions and rituals are not necessarily our preferred dating option. Digital dating is gaining broad acceptance as the world embraces the convenience of smartphones, iPads, and various digital devices. These tools are well-suited for the fast-paced, I-want-it-all-now mentality of contemporary culture. A resourceful dater can literally flirt with the world 24/7 ... and many do. The power of digital dating can be compared to dragnet fishing. Savvy digital daters can literally talk to a cast of thousands. It seems that hardly a month passes when careless use of cellphones/email doesn't expose another celebrity or civic leader's cheating ways. Divorce attorneys are practically dancing in the streets as this new technology is often Exhibit A in divorce proceedings. But despite bad press and considerable apprehension, digital dating remains an obvious and increasingly popular solution for a culture that is hyper-transient, overworked, and a far cry from the community-centered families of the past. David provides practical advice to help you avoid newbie mistakes. He will assist you every step of the way; from writing an "authentic" profile to understanding the many do's/don'ts that will keep you safe and realistic in your quest to connect to that special "someone." He certainly makes no claim to cure indiscretions; but he is undoubtedly a knowledgeable/entertaining guide.
