We are shallow, shallow bitches: Last year, we met a guy who seemed perfect, in so many ways. He was tall, slender, employed, age-appropriate, beautiful, kind, and he took us out on real dates. One night, he called us: "Hey, I'm in the neighborhood, would you like to grab a coffee?" We'd just been thinking about him, and we were giddy. Until he showed up wearing Tevas over a pair of socks. Something inside us just died. The blood cooled, the ardor waned?we didn't make a conscious decision, like Tevas = dump his ass, but things just changed. We know we're not the only ones this has happened to—that's why two women wrote the really funny book Undateable. We have several copies that we're giving away, exclusively to people who like us on Facebook. Check us out on Facebook, like us, post your dealbreaker (doesn't have to be as extensive, or damning, as ours was), and on Thursday we'll pick our faves and reward them with a copy of the book
