InvestiDate:How to Investigate Your Date by Maria Coder

Category : Books

When I went to the “Start Over Smart” expo a few weeks ago in New York City, I met a really interesting  lady, Maria Coder.  She was a former crime and general assignment reporter.  She had suffered a broken heart, and decided never to be blindsided again!  So she wrote this great book entitled, InvestiDate: How to Investigate Your Date.  It is so interesting with lots of clues of things  to look for when you are meeting new people.  Often, initial judgements can be wrong, so Maria helps you make those judgements in a more logical way.  She wants to help men and women know what they are getting into when they go out.   Check it out, it is really interesting.

Here is the book description from Amazon:

InvestiDate: How to Investigate Your Date is a fun, tongue-in-cheek, secret weapon-like book that arms men and women with tools to maneuver through this minefield called love. All with the 007-mission to steer clear of physical danger, financial ruin, and emotional harm.

Daters of all ages will learn step-by-step how to:

-Conduct criminal checks
-Verify employment
-Gauge marital status
-Create a Date-a-Base
-Scour property records
-And much, much more

Created by Maria Coder, a former crime and general assignment reporter, InvestiDate teaches daters how to investigate their dates using modern day scenarios. InvestiDate has been featured on The TODAY Show. UK’s Mail Online, Australia’s The Morning Show, New York Magazine, The Washington Times, and countless other media.

No stranger to a broken heart, Maria has canceled a wedding, dumped a philanderer, and had her heart unrecognizably pulverized a time or two. She’s earned her dues in the dating trenches and has decided it’s time to set the record straight.

A member of Investigative Reporters and Editors, a professional organization dedicated to improving the quality of investigative reporting, Maria is committed to empowering men and women to know what they’re getting themselves into; and to know when to get out.
