How To Lose A Girl In 10 Dates: Episode 2
In the sitcom world, the unimaginable stress of an impending date will often see the hapless hero arrive not only hideously late, but hideously drunk. Funny? Sure. Realistic? Not according to Cupid’s mortal enemy, Jon Richardson.
Sorry to be the ones to break it to you, but our lives aren’t accompanied by laughter tracks. We don’t inevitably get the girl after several seasons of will they won’t they romantic-cum-slapstick clinches, and our only studio audience is a random gaggle of strangers that, to be perfectly honest, are more likely to report you to the local authorities than applaud you when faced with an impromptu monologue about your dating woe.
So forget about every comedy, drama and soppy romcom you’ve ever seen and accept the inevitable – you are going to die alone. At least that’s what Jon reckons, and he’ll show you precisely how in episode two of AskMen’s dating series – How To Lose A Girl In 10 Days, based around timekeeping can beautifully spoil a romantic evening.
And remember: don’t be late, be early. Be very, very, very early.
