Kurzbeschreibung

This is a collection of NINE SHORT STORIES, all based (unfortunately) on my own experience. Dating, divorce, desperation--all that good stuff! After nineteen years of marriage, I was suddenly thrust into a brave new world of dating--online, offline, standing in line, listening to lines--and I've survived to tell these tales. CAUTION: if you're contemplating divorce, these stories may convince you to consider marriage counseling. If you're out there dating, chances are you will relate. OMG! Here's a scary thought: maybe you've met some of these guys! Names have been changed to protect the guilty.

These stand-alone stories range in length from 500 words to over 3,000 words. The collection is a total of 14,613 words, approximately 55 pages.


Note from the author:
After being married for nineteen years, my husband wanted a divorce. The good new is that we're still friends. In fact, when I recently had a bad accident resulting in three emergency surgeries and an amputated toe, he really helped me out. So that's a happy ending. However, dating wasn't quite as happy.

These nine short stories reflect my experience.Most people find many of the stories funny.(One isn't supposed to be funny, and most are bittersweet.) Some people don't. I can't guarantee you will, but I do guarantee that I poured my heart into these stories, and I love sharing them with readers.

Thanks to everyone who's bought them!

5.0 von 5 Sternen Great fun! 26. April 2011
Format:Kindle Edition
Suzanne Tyrpak is a natural story teller, and I was cracking up out loud quite a lot during some of the collection. At the same time, though, the stories are also quite sad, and they're a great insight into the dating game after her divorce. I recognized quite a few traits of the men she dates, and they're pretty scary!

Dating My Vibrator is a roller-coaster of emotions, and a bare-all (not literally!) book that women and (hopefully!) men can relate to. If you're looking for a fun read, you've got to check this out!

5.0 von 5 Sternen Pure Comedic Brilliance 6. Oktober 2010
Von J. A. KONRATH - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition
Suzanne Tyrpak has created a truly unique collection of short stories in this offering. It seems impossible that one woman has had such misfortune in the world of online dating, but Suzanne's bad luck is our reading enjoyment. Please believe me when I tell you that books that are simultaneously this insightful and hilarious do not come along all that often. I write thrillers, I read thrillers, so for me to rave about a short story collection based in the world of online dating signals a truly unforgettable work. You simply have to read this.

5.0 von 5 Sternen I love Suzanne 6. Oktober 2010
Von Terry Silver - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verifizierter Kauf
If I could, I'd give "Dating My Vibrator" six or more stars. It's that funny and that well written. I've been disappointed in the past by books written by women that were advertised as being humorous, which I thought were more silly than funny. Suzanne is witty, intelligent, and indomitable. My sympathies, Suzanne, regarding your disastrous dates. Couldn't help laughing though. I'm looking forward to other works by you. Talk about making lemonade out of the lemons in your life . . . how about making custard pies and throwing them at your dates?

5.0 von 5 Sternen Good vibes by Tyrpak 20. Januar 2011
Von Dinahline - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition
Suzanne Tyrpak's Dating My Vibrator slides easily between joy and pain. I winced at some of her dating experiences mostly because I'd shared them. Why do we cut these bores so much slack? She made me feel I was in the restaurant with Mr. X willing him to like me. Some of the stories resonated more than others, but I bet readers will all find a few they like. Most made me laugh out loud.
Tyrpak is a skilled writer who won't disapoint.

4.0 von 5 Sternen It's like Ms. Tyrpak was in my head (with a much better editor, of course)! 10. Dezember 2010
Von Syria Says... - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition
Storyline: Dating My Vibrator by Suzanne Tyrpak is just plain good. I absolutely relate. Some of the dates I've had...wow.
The book is a collection of short stories that semi-chronicles her dating life (or lack-thereof) after her divorce. Ms. Tyrpak even included the dreaded "this is why the marriage failed" conversation. Fantastic. (In a horribly accurate kind of way.) How many of us have had that same conversation with a ridiculous ex? Spot on.

Grammar/Spelling: I didn't notice any grammar or spellings errors.

Character Development: Each of the guys in Dating My Vibrator embodies the fools that exist in the dating world. It truly is a wonder we ever actually meet The One.

Suzanne introduces the reader to Jon, who is "committed to the arts" and apparently committed to saturated fats as well. He seems like a perfect match: enjoys writing, travel, is intelligent and articulate. They exchange samples of their written work, Suzanne dutifully reads his. He merely "looks over" hers. Hilarity ensues. Ahhh... A true gentlemen.

Of course, her aide d'amour is featured quite prominently in one of the stories. Suzanne breaks down the pros and cons of having a boyfriend versus having just a battery operated boyfriend. The very same pros and cons that nearly every gal has mentally gone over when she's sitting across from a real charmer who is more interested in her mid-latitudes than a having an actual conversation.

Writing Style: The style is very fluid and entertaining. With each short story dedicated to a either a bad dating experience or a post-divorce moment of clarity, it is definitely engaging and very difficult to put down.

Continuity: No issues with continuity.

Overall Rating: 4+ I truly enjoyed Ms. Tyrpak's collection of short stories, Dating My Vibrator. It was honest, humorous and even cathartic to some extent. I would recommend this to anyone who is having a tough time with their divorce or their dating life. This will make an excellent gift for some of my newly single friends!

5.0 von 5 Sternen Dating nightmares exposed in fun fashion 27. September 2010
Von Rosaria Cain - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition
For anyone who has entered into the dating maze after being married, this book will be particularly special. I shared Suzanne's dilemma- bad dates after a long marriage- and never had the guts to write about it. This book is honest, funny and engaging. It also reminds me of what I don't like in small towns. It is a quick read- well written and in a woman's point of view. It was so good that I found myself wishing it was longer. "Dating My Vibrator (and other true fiction)" is a great gift for women over 40 who are new to the dating arena.
