From there the story just gets funnier and funnier. On his first date he winds up getting injured, I won't tell you how, you'll want to read that for yourself. On his second date with a different alien he goes to a communal reproductive meeting. Again you will have to read all about it for yourself. He goes on two more dates with aliens after that and you will be laughing out loud when you read what happens.
I love Scalzi's sense of humor and this was a nice departure from the end of the world events involving aliens. It's a very short read but well worth the .99 cents and I highly recommend it.
Summary *Minor Spoilers*
New guy reporter for a monthly magazine gets stuck writing the alien article of the month, this months story is alien dating. How will his current gf take the news, read on to find out...
Funny, short, twist ending. Few locations where story jumps to different points/locations without stating, minor annoyance after you keep reading to move on.
John Scalzi, rushing in where angels fear to tread, goes for the gusto in a short novella, and, you should excuse the expression, nails it. The result is very amusing and original. I periodically reread it and get just as much amusement each time as I did the first time.

Of course it's well-written! Scalzi wrote it!
