Marcus and Fiona have had three dates. Fiona knows this means she will either end up spending the rest of her life with Marcus or eventually have to break up with him, horribly. Both of these ideas are terrifying to Fiona. Tomorrow, Fiona will fake her own death and join Cirque du Soleil.
Dating is a scary business. It is certainly natural to have many questions about dating etiquette. For example: Who should you ask? Is calendar shopping a good idea for the first date?
What do you do if the man takes his shirt off in the bar? Are sword fights typical? And how many days should you spend doing your hair?
Answers to all these vital questions – and more – can be found in simple language and easy-to-read, large font in the Ladybird Book of Dating.
"It’s enough to make Peter and Jane choke on their watercress sandwiches." – The Independent
Do you ever find yourself longing for a simpler time? That time before the horrors of speed-bumps, automated supermarket checkouts and infernal switchboard options; the days when telephones had wires and a reassuring rotating dial, a tweet meant birdsong and Brexit might possibly have meant a new kind of breakfast cereal?
Fear not, for you are not alone. What you need are the new manuals for our times, simple primers for the everyday predicaments we find ourselves in.
Dear friend, what you need is a Ladybird.
