20/20 is interested in your Bad Dates! The ABC Newsmagazine wants to know what makes a date go bad? We want to see!

The ABC Newsmagazine 20/20 is working with BadOnlineDates.com and we are looking for videos of dates gone wrong, the wilder the better!

So the next time your date heads south, instead of just thinking what you will post here…..think of taking out your iPhone or digital camera and recording it all! Make sure it’s obvious why this is an example of a “Bad Date”…you can narrate if you want….you can ask questions ….you can even shoot yourself too, not just the other person if you like….whatever will make it clear what’s wrong.

It may take some creativity on your part to pull it off; it probably won’t work if you say “this date is so awful I need video to prove to my friends what happened!”. So by all means have fun…make it playful! But however you can do it, the video should show people what you went through.

If necessary for television broadcast identities can be kept confidential, but 20/20 wants to see whatever you can shoot. If you’ve ever recorded something in the past, that’s worth sending too. There’s no guarantee that what you submit will be used, but the producers will contact anyone whose story they like.

Please don’t stage anything though, it has to be real. Send your video clips, bad date stories and contact information to Thomas.j.berman@abc.com.

All of this has happened in a slow burn and here I am. The good, the bad, the mistakes, way too many tears shed to count, lots of wine and oh my goodness a huge learning curve that leaves me much of the time saying, “I’m sorry but this is all new to me.”
