Diving Back into the Dating Pool: Because internet dating at forty is hilarious, but loneliness isn't. (Paperback)
These are the true confessions of a forty year old man diving back into the dating pool. However, Cupid does things differently these days. No longer does a man spot his mate, club her over the head, and drag her by the hair back to the cave. These are sophisticated times and meeting new people occurs primarily on the web, even if most are loathe to admit it. Over the course of two years, the author meets with a variety of women: the Country Girl, the Princess, the Psychiatrist, the Preacher's Ex-Wife, the Farmer's Daughter, Phone Girl, the Crazy Cat Lady, that strange Goth Girl, the Sapiophile and many more. Will any of them capture his heart?
David Ayala is a freelance illustrator, caricature artist, cartoonist and apparently thinks he is some kind of author now. He attended the legendary Kubert School in the late 80s where he learned to draw silly pictures. Later in life he went to college, because that is what all the cool kids were doing. Four years later he walked out of the door with a degree in general psychology. This same degree most likely saved him from the sheer madness of middle-aged dating. David currently resides in a cornfield somewhere in the Midwest. He has a border collie named Zim, a couple of guitars, three grandsons, enjoys eating fajitas, and drives a green mini-van to the store a few times a week to buy more fajitas. He is also more than aware of how difficult it can be to write an author's blurb.
