It may seem perverse, but people often bond over how much they dislike something – or someone. In fact, if you play your cards well enough, hating the same things may be the best way of ending up in bed with someone you fancy.
Here are some random things I hate: peanut butter; people who dawdle on busy pavements; Johnny Depp; vodka; nuclear orange cheese; David Avocado Wolfe; and John Legend’s ‘All of Me’, a song as romantic as plastic carnations performed by a man in the throes of a wedgie.
If you agree with me, we may fall madly in love and move some place exotic — like the Maldives or Mullingar.
In the past week I have been asked twice how a single person should set about finding true love. I’ll be honest — I’m fucked if I know. Sure, you can trawl for potential mates on dating apps, at evening classes, through mutual friends, at work, in the pub and at meet-ups, but it’s a crap-shoot whether you’ll actually find anyone you fancy. But if you do, there are a couple of things that can help turn attraction into love – or at least into overnight affection.
