Jennifer Love Hewitt & Cyber Dating

Jennifer Love Hewitt's break up of her one-year relationship with Ghost Whisperer co-star Jamie Kennedy has become official. Perhaps the actress should consider joining an online dating site.

According to People Magazine, Love Hewitt is joining the world of singles just before her book release of The Day I Shot Cupid: Hello, My Name is Jennifer Love Hewitt and I'm a  Love-aholic, which is due out in the bookstores on March 23, 2010.

Now, the question arises, Should Jennifer Love-Hewitt join an online dating site?

Of course, I am going to say yes. But just which site would b the most appropriate for the actress who professes to e a hopeless romantic? Probably the site with a large membership base and with men who are looking for a committed relationship. Should she post a profile photo? What about her age? These are all questions the actress will need to consider should she decide to venture into cyberspace for her next mate.

With over 40 million singles visiting online dating sites, with our without a profile photo, she could enjoy the benefits of Internet dating and not rush into a new relationship. Online dating will give her the opportunity to select men that she could be interested in. Taking the time to heal from her recent break   up and then date multiple men might not be such a bad idea.

Will she follow her own advice from her relationship book? Perhaps.

My dating advice for Jennifer, take the time to do the things that make you happy. Write down a list of hobbies that you have neglected and friends you haven't spent time with.  Renew yourself from the inside out. Then go ahead and give online dating a try.

The key for online dating as well as any type of dating after a serious break up is to be emotionally available. No one wants to be the rebound person or the transition person after a serious relationship ends or a marriage ends in divorce.

Often high profile people shy away from online dating, as they don't want to put their profile photos on the Internet. Considering photos from the paparazzi are all over the web, and celebrities are busy with their Twitter accounts and Facebook fan pages, why shouldn't they have current online dating profiles if they are single?

CELEBRITIES AND ONLINE DATING

Everybody Loves Raymond's co-star Brad Garrett starred in his own web series, "Dating Brad Garett." In the series, Garrett's mom, ex-wife, exterminator, and urologist, all selected his online dates.

Brad Pitt was quoted in the August, 2009 issue of Wired magazine with his online dating advice. He tells singles to lie about their age to get selected. I have to disagree. Will he consider it himself some day? Only time will tell.
