Have you ever been on a date, where the guy said, did or wore something awful and internally you thought, date over?! Well I have (more than once), and apparently the authors of  the new book, Undateable: 311 Things Guys Do That Guarantee They Won't Be Dating or Having Sex,  have as well. Ellen Rakieten and Anne Coyle have written a hilarious guide on the "common mistakes" men make, that guarantee there will be no second date.

About the book (via the website):

Did your date show up wearing socks with sandals? Are tighty-whities a deal-breaker for you? Do fanny packs make you want to run for the door? Now, for the very first time, we’re revealing the secret list of things that so many perfectly eligible guys manage to wear, say, or do to make themselves completely undateable. With an essential rating system that ranges from minor red-flag offenses all the way to the irreversible kiss of death, this hilarious handbook exposes the many common mistakes that can turn an otherwise acceptable man from a “maybe” into a “no way.” From pleated shorts and soul patches to ordering girly drinks and owning more than one cat, the evidence is painfully funny to behold. No more double denim, corporate swag, or exclaiming “Booya!” No more jogging in place at stoplights, and definitely no more “going dutch” on the first date. This book is for every woman who’s ever wondered where to draw the line, and every guy who’s ever asked, “What did I do wrong?”  Here’s what you did.

VH1 obviously saw the entertainment value in this "laugh out loud" book, that they've turned it into a tv show! Undateable, is a new five hour special airing all week on VH1. (for airtimes check your local listing)

Buy Undateable the book and catch Undateable the tv show all week on VH1!
