Your terrible date could make you famous.
So the next time one of your dates heads south, instead of just thinking what you'd write in YourTango's Dating Disasters, think of taking out your iPhone or digital camera and making a video. Make sure it's obvious why you've had a "Bad Date." You can narrate it, you can ask questions, you can record yourself and, with his or her consent, you can "shoot" your date. Dating Disaster: Double-Dating My Ex
It may take some creativity on your part to pull it off; it probably won't work if you say, "This date is so awful I need video to prove to my friends what happened." So, have fun... make it silly. However you choose to do it, the video should show people what you went through.
If necessary for television broadcast, identities can be kept confidential, but 20/20 wants to see whatever you can shoot. If you've recorded something in the past, feel free to send it along. There are no guarantees that what you submit will be used, but the producers will contact anyone whose story they like.
Please don't script anything though, it has to be real. Send your video clips, bad date stories and contact information to Thomas.firstname.lastname@example.org.
