You have to kiss a frog or fifteen before you get to your prince/ss. That part of the bargain you accept, but when the amphibian turns out to be a deviant of sorts, stiffs you with the bill or herpes…My Very Worst Date™ is a commiseration of the moments when the sweet possibilities of romance turn into a sour struggle to get the hell out of the situation. We strongly believe that airing our (and other peoples) courtship disasters provides comedy, comfort and cautionary tales to bear in mind the next time you say ‘yes’ to drinks with a mysterious stranger.
When My Very Worst Date™ co-founders Victoria Namkung and Jessica Ramakrishnan first met at age 19, they were both interns at a men’s lifestyle magazine, armed with dreams of becoming journalists. Over the last decade, they have written for publications such as USA Today, Forbes, Los Angeles Times, Grazia, style.com and Chicago Tribune, among others. With a shared interest in fashion, travel and of course, dating, their friendship has sustained more than a few Very Worst Dates. The duo is also responsible for the roommate hate found at My Very Worst Roommate and reportage of 9 to 5 hell at My Very Worst Job.
