A collection of short descriptions of really bad date from both sexes point of view. I agree with other reviewers that it is a bit short but at the bargain price of £1.50 (at time of listing) well worth it for some great laughs. Really makes my (few) bad dates look tame in comparison!

Wow, if there are THIS many nutters out on the dating scene, proportionally there are far more genuinely weird or unpleasant people around than I had ever suspected.

It's hilarious but also, when you stop and think, really quite disturbing!

2.0 out of 5 stars A bit cheap and pointless to be honest 30 Dec 2013
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
I did think that twitter tag was very funny, but the actual book isn't brilliant. I would guess it was put together rather quickly, and I'm not sure that a whole book of tweets works very well.

3.0 out of 5 stars Shortest read ever 9 Sep 2013
By Irene R
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
I'm not sure the content of this was worth publishing a book for. I read it in 0.01 seconds (ok maybe slightly longer). Each page only has a couple of anecdotes on it so you go through it very quickly. I know the book isn't enormously expensive but I truly believe this book is not worth the money. Imagine the trees that have been felled to produce a book that can be read as quick as a magazine.

3.0 out of 5 stars Crap Dates 29 Mar 2013
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
Very prompt delivery and in perfect condition as expected. However, the humour is a little crude and basic and therefore not as funny as I'd anticipated... My fault though as the clues were in the title!
