Crap Dates: Disastrous Encounters from Single Lifeby Rhodri Marsden
- LendMe LendMe™ Learn More
In August this year, inspired by a particularly horrendous date he'd just had and fed up with the trials of single life, journalist and author Rhodri Marsden invited his Twitter followers to send in their worst ever dating experiences (in 140 characters or less, of course). The result was astonishing. Within hours Rhodri was flooded with 1000s of crazy, shocking and hilarious true stories of dating disasters. And as the word spread, people all over the world began to submit their calamitous experiences, sending Rhodri's Tweet viral and attracting the attention of newspapers, TV shows and online magazines drawn to this incredible story.
Crap Dates is the best from Rhodri's hilarious collection of real-life dating howlers, and is guaranteed to bring a smile to anyone who has ever had a bad date . . . everyone:
AdeleLBamber: He drank A LOT & talked about his sister A LOT. I left & he phoned +20 times. Last voicemail was him singing Billy Ocean at 4am.
emilyhill1982: Told him I liked reading, he said he wanted to burn all libraries and then talked about football for hours. I hid in the loo.
Abzbyrne: I had one who turned up, on a warm summer evening, in a huge arran jumper because he thought I'd like that being Irish.

When I first tried to open this book on my nook I couldn't get past the cover. For the first few pages I went to "go to page" and just put in the next page number. After about 5 pages it started working ok. I only bought this to read the disaster date stories, and I really only skimmed through the advise parts. Some stories were pretty awful and most were funny. A short (66 page) read good for a few chuckles.
I really appreciate that you included the number of pages.I request that all the time but not very many people are kind enough to add it in their review.Thank you so much.Granny B.
