Via an e-mail questionnaire, she studied their online meeting places, modes of communication (e.g. cyber-flirting), and offline meeting. Through case studies of such e-couples, the author developed a model of relationship success/failure predicated on place, obstacles, self-presentation, and timing. The questionnaire and a summary of the couples characteristics are appended. Annotation ©2004 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR
