Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

On the heels of the success of How to Date in a Post-Dating World comes this polar opposite: a collection of dating nightmares that'll certainly let readers know what absolutely not to do on a date. Since the year 2000, dating columnist Judy McGuire has advised and entertained singles with her irreverent Ask DateGirl column. For every possible type of dating nightmare scenario out there, Judy's most probably heard about it, and has offered advice on what to do to resolve it if the problem date is still lingering. In this book, she collects some of the worst dates she has heard about, ranging from the bland to the incredibly frightening.

Synopsis:

Columnist Judy McGuire has advised and entertained singles with her irreverent “Ask DateGirl” column since 2000. Shes 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.
