Your dating stories

Jennifer Aniston has admitted that she has left dates early because she couldn’t stand being on them.

She explained: "Dating sucks. I just don't understand it. I've been on dates where I had to excuse myself on the pretext of going to the bathroom and instead I wound up walking out the door of a restaurant."

Meanwhile it seems men don't have to spend a fortune to impress a woman. Research has found nearly a quarter of women like a man who's careful with money - and on average expect them to fork out around £30-£35 on the first date.

Regional expectations of how much women expect men to spend on a first date
London £34.55
East Anglia £32.97
South West £32.65
South East £32.22
East Midlands £30.11
Wales £29.85
West Midlands £29.08

And men have tried to woo women over the years with witty chat up lines, chocolates and flowers - but apparently all you need to do is wear red.  Scientists in the US have found the colour makes men more sexually desirable and attractive to women. The study says the results correlate with red being linked to fertility and power in the animal kingdom.
