Top Customer Reviews
She also includes interviews with porn stars Tera Patrick and Joanna Angel, a shrink, a stripper, and a few other dating veterans to give some highly specific dating "do"s and "don't"s. As someone who's been on my share of bad dates but who's also committed a sin or two in the dating realm, I laughed out loud while reading this book - when I wasn't cringing in horror at some of the things people will put up with in the name of love (and nookie).
What's also great about this book is that McGuire owns up to her own dating faux pas and even gives a ray of hope that even those who mess up, like her current boyfriend, who brought along friends for moral support on their first date, can be redeemed. I can only hope that my future dates will be nowhere as tragic as some of these, and at least know what to look for. Best of all, McGuire doesn't take herself or the dating dilemmas she presents here too seriously. This is not a "you must do this (or not do this)" if you ever want to find a partner type of book. It's one that, dare I say, you could even share with someone you're dating - just not on a first date.
