The success of Pregnancy Sucks and Pregnancy Sucks for Men has made Joanne Kimes a bona fide expert on the fine art of complaining - and dating can go on a lot longer than nine months.

Dating Sucks is an indispensable resource to keep dignity and sanity intact through the hell fires of dating.

Includes -

  • Meeting Men - from crazy matchmakers to nasty bars to the chaos of cyberspace.
  • The Directory of Duds - the guys who show up at the door and make the modern woman want to slam it.
  • Surviving the First Date - the hell she endures to get a free meal.
  • The Sexual Revulsion - the physical side of dating in the new millennium.
  • What's Good on TV - all the stuff she'd rather be doing than going on one more date.
