Dealbreaker: The Definitive List of Dating Offenses

Front Cover
Running Press, Sep 28, 2010 - Humor - 224 pages
Dealbreaker is a hilarious reference guide to the qualities that, when discovered, transform the “date you hope to go home with” into the “date you pray never calls again.” A “dealbreaker” could be an annoying habit (you talk through movies), a physical attribute (your soul patch), a lifestyle choice (your cucumber melon body spray), a worldview (your delusions of grandeur), and everything in between!

With a combination of good-natured ribbing and sardonic snark, comics Dave Horwitz and Marisa Pinson have catalogued these characteristics that, though occasionally trivial, serve as early warning signs of possible relationship discontent. Based on their popular eponymous blog, which is gaining a wide audience of disgruntled singles, Dealbreaker is sure to resonate with anyone who has had a bad date or a relationship gone awry.

About the author (2010)

Dave Horwitz and Marisa Pinson met while performing Improv and Sketch comedy at LA's Upright Citizens Brigade Theater. The two started Dealbreaker, a blog where they could vent their frustrations about their ill-fated dating lives. They now bring their unique sensibilities to Dealbreaker (the book), at the risk of rendering themselves undateable to anyone who Googles them. They both live in Los Angeles.
