Tampa – Valentine’s Day can be a lonely occasion if you are unmarried and not dating anyone. With this in mind, Internet dating coach and author Tara Richter is celebrating the launch of her newest title – “10 Rules to Survive the Internet Dating Jungle” – with a party on that lovestruck February 14 holiday.

The event – which will be held at The Slug at 12950 Race Track Road in the West Chase area of Tampa – will give guests the opportunity to meet Richter and win autographed copies of her newest title and her first book, “10 Rules to Survive the Dating Jungle.” There will also be an appearance by David Good, who was seen on The Bachelorette in 2009 and starred on The Bachelor Pad in 2010. A Tampa-based entrepreneur, Good won the grand prize on The Bachelor Pad that year.

For the $15 cover charge, attendees will be treated to a dessert bar, live music and the chance to mingle with singles. The cover charge also enters guests into a raffle, which includes prizes like:

  • 1 hour professional photo shoot plus 100 photos on CD ($200 value)
  • Autographed copies of both dating jungle books ($40 value)
  • Gift certificates from Pose Salon in Tampa
  • Gift basket from Amazingly Creative Events
  • Internet dating coaching sessions ($55 value)
  • Dating Jungle t-shirts & More

“A singles party is an ideal way to spend Valentine’s Day instead of going on a first date or just staying at home,” said the 35-year-old Richter, who studied art and graphic design in college and blogs about dating and relationships at http://www.datingjunglebook.com, where readers can buy her book as well.. “It is a low-pressure atmosphere where you can have fun, meet other singles, meet a reality show star and learn tips about Internet dating.”

A report last year from scientists at the University of Rochester indicated that online dating has become the second most common form of matchmaking in the United States, only behind meeting through mutual friends. Recognizing the prominence of Internet dating – and fueled with stories from her personal experiences as well as conversations about the subject with her friends – Richter decided there was a need for a source to help men and women alike understand how to achieve the goal of meeting that special someone online

“10 Rules to Survive the Internet Dating Jungle” serves as a guidebook for online dating, Richter explained. It includes chapters that inform readers on finding the ideal dating website (including reviews on several sites), creating a captivating profile, initiating contact online and how to safely take the communication offline and meet in person, and Internet dating terminology among other topics.

“Knowledge is power, and that phrase is especially appropriate in online dating,” Richter said. “Ultimately, it is up to you to find the ideal guy or girl, but following these 10 rules will help you more easily and successfully navigate the dating jungle.”
