We’re jumping for joy at Cyber Dating Expert Headquarters!

Our site, Cyber-Dating Expert, the dating advice blog created as a lifestyle site for online daters, has been nominated as a finalist in About.com’s 2011 Readers’ Choice Awards.

It’s such an honor and without you, our readers, this wouldn’t have been possible, so we thank you for your votes. If you’d like to see us win, you’ll have the opportunity to vote daily until March 8th. Click this link to vote for Julie Spira – Cyber Dating Expert for Best Dating Blog.

Here’s a little history about Cyber Dating Expert and why I started this site:

Created in 2008, Cyber-Dating Expert was launched to support the online dating industry and single daters looking for love online. Originally, the stories were all from my personal dating experiences, and there were many. We launched with two very popular features, the Cyber Love Story of the Week and the Peril of the Week, where singles and couples can share their online dating stories. Some are heartwarming, some are heartbreaking, and some are simply hilarious.

As an early adopter of the Internet, I created my first online dating profile in 1994. After personally going on hundreds of dates after a painful heartbreak and then finding love on the web, ?I memorialized my story in my bestselling book, The Perils of Cyber-Dating: Confessions of a Hopeful Romantic Looking for Love Online.

Being a former rock and roll DJ, it was time to dust off the headphones and go back on the air. We launched Ask the Cyber Dating Expert Show on Valentine’s Day in 2009 with Shayan Zadeh, co-founder of social dating site ZOOSK as our first guest. Since that time, we’ve featured hundreds of online dating CEOs and bestselling relationship authors on the program. ?Offline, I spend a lot of time helping singles find love online through my irresistible coaching programs, including creating irresistible profiles for daters.

In addition to the articles on Cyber Dating Expert, you’ll find my dating and relationship advice on Date Daily, eHarmony, GenConnect, JDate, Match.com, YourTango, and Zoosk. I also write about the marriage of love and technology on Huffington Post and our press room is filled with hundreds of articles and interviews to help you with your cyberdating journey. It’s been an honor and pleasure to have reached millions of singles and I’m personally touched by your support.

Cyber Dating Expert is not only a labor of love, it’s a destination site for singles who have learned to spice up their love lives with our Love Potions recipes, regular dating advice, and recommended books in our Reading Room.

Votes are being accepted from now through midnight EST on March 31st. You can vote for us daily. If you love our content, let us know and help us win!

    Congrats! Have to say I’m not surprised that you guys made the final! Gutted I didn’t have the chance to vote though. I feel OkCupid did deserve to win it but I think they have been going a lot longer then you guys have? Oh well better luck next time I suppose.
