Talking about your job and your interests is pretty dull if you're not scratching the dirt of it all. Hate dating drops the pretense and sends two strangers into a lively debate, immediate hatred, or mutual malcontent.
One dater calls it a quick test for compatibility (you see how you fight together), but the hate-dating pioneers behind Down With Dating see it as nothing more than an icebreaker. And if my nervous-tick complaining is as common as I suspect, it just might work.
Would you love to hate date, or would you rather date nice?
