For this week’s writing challenge, we’re bestowing upon you the glory of entertaining, shocking, beguiling or humoring us with your stories and experiences around #datingtruths. Most of us have had the unfortunate experience of a bad first-date, and awkward encounter with the parents, a pick-up line that went awry, an embarrassing dating moment you can never forget, or perhaps a foray into the ever-expanding platforms for online dating.

Do you have a first-hand story around the topic you’ve been wanting to get off your chest? We’re offering 5 x $25 Amazon vouchers for the best submissions, which will also be featured in a beautifully curated fanzine and promoted on our homepage.
