Date Expectations by Paul Reizin
Paul Reizin is living proof that it is possible to find happiness through newspaper lonely hearts columns. So is his wife. And their baby.
Date Expectations tells the story of Paul's escape from the clutches of singledom, via some of the most ill-starred dates in the history of courtship. Meet the psycho hippy nutter and tremble! Wonder at the date who didn't turn up! Blink and you'll miss the world's shortest date! Panic as you encounter the date with a face like a bag of spanners! Paul also cracks the secret code of lonely hearts advertisements. Bubbly = fat. Cats, dogs, livestock generally = a bad thing. Anger-management classes = do not pursue under any circumstances. And as he negotiates his way through this emotional minefield, suddenly he meets the potential woman of his dreams. Twice.
Date Expectations is a hilarious and frankly much too revealing journey into the psyche of the single male. It's proof positive that blind dating is like life - by the time you've learned to do it properly, you no longer need to . . .
