Part Bridget Jones’s Diary, part Ten Things I Hate About You, Dale Dent’s Diary is a fresh, funny and surprisingly touching look at one gay man’s neurotic pursuit of love. Or at least volcanic sex.
In the war between his heart and his privates, 27 year-old Dale Dent thinks he wants his heart to win, but does he really? After all, every Mr. Right turns into Mr. Wrong the minute he gets serious. The “vulgarian,” Dale’s raunchy best friend, meanwhile, lives for endless one-stands and laughs at Dale’s romantic dreams.
Dale’s uproarious attempts at finding Mr. Right—from bar hopping to gym ratting and everything in between—always seem to end up just this side of wrong. But when a charming, brilliant, and beautiful young man refuses to play his games, Dale learns he must confront an obstacle to true love he never could’ve predicted—himself.
Through short and pithy diary excerpts and vivid characters, Dale’s journey of self-discovery is as hilarious as it is surprising. But beware, you’ll never look at tweezers or toilet paper rolls the same way again.
