Can't get enough of your friends’ disastrous dating stories? So we asked readers to write in with theirs, and sex therapist Dr. From “friends with benefits” to dates who snoop, here are some common dating disasters, along with solutions on how to deal with them. I was rather quick, but as I rounded the corner, I caught her going through my checkbook. I never returned her calls or e-mails and never called her again. — A: There is nothing wrong with a little harmless background checking, such as Googling your date or checking out his or her My Space page.

Q: I was dating for a short time — a 39-year-old banker woman (on a scale of 1 to 10, she was a 10). But you are definitely crossing the line once you start rummaging through belongings or snooping into checkbooks!

— A: Forgo the awkwardness that occurs when the check arrives by agreeing that whoever asks should pay.

For instance, if you invited your new man to try a tapas restaurant in the neighborhood, you should pick up the tab at the end of the night.

Q: I have been hooking up with my male best friend.

When we're not between the sheets, we act as if nothing ever happened.

If this is the case, simply confess and tell your date that you would rather just be friends.

If the participant walks out on the date early, or the date reaches 60 minutes, the actor will reveal the ruse and present them with the money.

Although I don't recommend prying until you know he's a keeper, if you really need to know something (whether it is about his previous relationships, income, etc.), then you should be upfront and just ask him.

But don’t be surprised when he turns the table and asks you the same questions!

If your Cupid asks you how it went, tell her that it wasn’t a love match, but you appreciate her effort.

If she keeps hounding you about it, remain aloof and remember not to take her hook-up offers in the future.

One night after a date, we were back at my place having a nightcap, when I excused myself to the bathroom. As customary, she leaned in for a kiss goodnight, and I backed away.
