On his first ever blind date Donal Ruane fainted. Undaunted, he decided to plough on in search of a soulmate. He tried the friend-of-a-friend angle, but that didn't pan out too well either. The speedating thing was an out and out travesty. The internet dating sites he joined produced some interesting prospects, but unfortunately, Lisa turned out to be pregnant, Elaine wasn't the woman of easy virtue her status as a nurse might have suggested, and Maria was far too hairy for his liking. Abroad, things fared only slightly worse: Jane stood him up in London, Ellen stood up to him in New York, and Vera, Anya and Tatyana from the Russian Federation faced each other down in a hotly contested battle not for his affections, but for the altogether more desirable prize of Irish citizenship. Running parallel to all these romantic mishaps was his deranged fixation and pursuit of Ms. Daisy Garnett, Commissioning Editor of "Vogue" in Londoon. It's a story every man can relate to. And for every woman who ever wondered, 'What was he thinking?' - this is what he was thinking. 'Women should read this book to protect themselves' - Ray D'Arcy.
'Intelligent, fresh, distinctive, guff-free style, interspersed with some quite hilariously illustrative anecdotes' - "The Irish Times".
