Columnist Judy McGuire has advised and entertained singles with her irreverent “Ask DateGirl” column since 2000. She’s heard it all, and here she tells it all — from the bland to the terrifying — along with sage advice on how to short-circuit any Date from Hell. Printed in a handy gift format, How Not to Date is organized into four sections, a series of gradually worse-off situations compiled from readers over the years. "Worried Grimace” features not ideal dates but nothing to freak out over. "One Eyebrow Raised" contains stories of dates with red flags. "Both Eyebrows Furrowed in Horror" collects true nightmare tales. Finally, "Abandon Hope All Ye Who Enter Here" showcases the worst of the worst. For each nightmare situation, Judy advises what to do, and how to escape the especially frightful and potentially dangerous ones. In addition, she forecasts what the future could be like if the date is given "just one more" chance. less
Funny, witty and soooooo true! The book doesn't promises to give you the Holy Grail of dating rules but instead, it relates day to day horror stories on dating... Worth reading it, with a grain of salt!
it's hilarious, witty, and chock full of dating stories that range from bland to sh*t-tastically awful. literately entertaining. the author's column, dategirl, runs in seattle weekly and is one of my must-reads. highly recommended!
