There are bad dates – and then there are bad dates. Like the smarmy 50-year-old who came to my Hanukkah party to give me a stuffed two-humped camel because “humping twice is better than humping once.” Or the 90-pound guy in Hawaii whose invitation to join his harem included a link to his web page, which extolled the virtues of drinking one’s own urine. You can’t make this stuff up.
From dates arranged online to those dreadful Jewish singles parties (which really should be declared a crime against humanity by the U.N.), CHASING CUPID: TALES OF DATING DISASTER IN JEWISH SUBURBIA tackles these and other perils of the singles scene. Each chapter is a funny rendition of a different awful date, or a collection of dates on a similar theme, and unfortunately for me, all of these dates really did happen!
