in Social Networking (E)

[] Los Angeles, California - You spend an hour getting ready, making sure you look your best, your breath is like roses, and every hair is in place. You drive to the restaurant and eagerly await your first date with a promising new person ... and they show up drunk as a skunk, or better yet, order the most expensive things on the menu and stick you with the bill. Is it funny? Only if it's not happening to you. The new BadDates iPhone app will have you rolling in the aisles, as you read and post both horrible and hilarious dating stories. Hey, it's better than being home alone with a tub of ice cream right?

"There's no better path to healing and hope than a road paved with laughter - the BadDates iPhone App gives daters brand new ways to laugh, while turning negative dating experiences into positive ones, right as they are happening from the dating trenches," says Jennifer Kelton, founder of "With the BadDates app and the Bad Online Dates community, you're never alone."

In the BadDates' "Read" and "Post" channels, users can share their own experiences and read others' encounters with dating disasters like the wide-eyed Gaper (a man who openly stares at every woman in the room), the Ranter (the woman who complains about her ex the entire time), and the Alcoholic (self-explanatory!).

The laughs continue in the "Watch" channel, where one can view the entertaining and satirical Bad Date TV webisodes, featuring comical "Dating Don'ts" often perpetrated by BadDate Ben and BadDate Betty.

This fun and easy-to-use app is the mobile component of the website and provides fresh, user-contributed content that is sure to entertain as well as put one's dating life in perspective. Sure, good dates are great, but it's bad dates that make for great stories.
