Air Guitarists Are `Undateable'

Tuesday, March 9, 2010 16:04 GMT

CHICAGO (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) – Sometimes, oddball details can make a guy totally undateable.

For single fellas still going out in mandals – man sandals – the book Undateable: 311 Things Guys Do That Guarantee They Won’t Be Dating Or Having Sex (Villard), out March 16, is a helpful guide on what NOT to do.

Authors Ellen Rakieten and Anne Coyle list the annoying, awful, and unattractive stuff dudes do, which will hopefully serve as a wake-up call.

The authors spoke to hundreds of women to expose the brutally honest “secret list” of what turns them off, and guys should listen if they ever want to score.

Among the no-nos are playing air guitar because “if you really want to impress us, learn to play the real guitar,” and jogging in place at stoplights.

Coyle explains, “We get it. You’re really taking this seriously. If you stop now, will you actually collapse? You look like a doofus.”
