A hundred dates in less than a year. Will they heal her broken heart or make it worse? Brilliant, hilarious and excruciating confessions from bestselling writer and journalist Helen Razer.
I need to get better at humans. I don't want to live in a love vacuum with someone who loathes me again. I don't want to cohabit at all. I don't want to reproduce; my eggs are probably powdered, anyhow. I don't want to consume you whole...All I want. All I want. Well, at my age, all I want is to move from unstinting self regard and a wan obsession with my 'needs' and desserts to real friendliness; to genuine intimate and accommodating interest in my fellows...Also, I would quite like to have sex, eventually...To this end, I have decided to 'date' persons and to do this with an attitude of minimum expectation and of maximum respect. I am aiming to date one hundred persons by the end of the year so, naturally, I seek your help in attaining this goal...If you are neither biologically old enough to be my parent nor young enough to be my issue, I cordially invite all comers to a low cost assignation...After the break-up of a 15-year relationship, journalist, writer and broadcaster Helen Razer decided to set herself a task to get over her grief and start living her life again: to go on 100 dates between Feb 2013 and the end of that year. The Helen One Hundred is her disarmingly frank and no-holds-barred account of those dates and what happens at the end of them. Will she be over her ex? Will she have met her true love? Will she have had fun and got herself back on track after her heartbreak? All will be revealed in The Helen One Hundred, a brilliant idea written in Helen's trademark hilarious, revealing and self- deprecating style.
