Have you ever wondered what goes through a man’s mind when you first meet? “Why didn’t he ask me out again? What did he think of me?” “Did I say the wrong thing?” I was newly singled after an unwanted divorce and retired early, so I had time on my hands to find a girlfriend. I didn’t want to be alone, and hadn’t dated in years. I was eager to meet a woman, and became discouraged trying to find someone to be your love, your best trusted friend, a confidant and companion — a very difficult task. Seeing my low spirits to get on with searching to find a woman, a good friend simply told me dating is “Just a game of numbers — the more ladies you meet, the better decision you’ll make.” So, I ventured into the field of online dating and over three years met over 350 ladies. Many women asked me what goes through a man’s mind when he meets a woman. In this book I spell out my thoughts about the women I met, her walk, her appearance, demeanor, clothes, habits, figure, etc. in detail.

Will she be the one? Or maybe it’s the next woman he meets. The anticipation and possibilities are palpable in this intriguing insight into what a man wants.

This is a book for women who wonder what men think on the first online meetup.

I absolutely loved the title. And I love coffee. Throw in a dozen short stories that read like a speed dating guide and this novella became a fun way to spend the afternoon.

One of the things I absolutely enjoyed about this book was that it clued me in on what men think about (or at least what one of them thinks) when they set up a meeting with a woman online.

It felt a little repetitious after a while, he meets a woman, they talk, he catalogs her good/bad points and decides if she’s the woman he wants in his life. Lather, rinse, repeat for each super short story presented. However, that being said, the author has a good writing voice and each time my interest was newly piqued to know what happens next, who the next woman will be and will he fall in love with her?

I loved how the writer portrayed each character, with the good, the bad and everything. The incidents or what happened in this book felt real. The characters felt like normal people that we may meet or ones that we may know.

The ending was a bit of a surprise. As a reader of romance stories, I think I was expecting a HEA or at the very least a HFN. It felt unfinished for me. It might be interesting to see if the author writes a follow-up book when/if he meets the woman he’s searching for, the one who’ll be his forever love.
