Flirt with the unknown in 17 unusual tales of blind dates... When people embark on blind dates, they never quite know what they will find-and the dates in these mostly modern- day urban tales go far beyond the usual expectations. Here, these 17 romantic hopefuls encounter surprise first dates with the likes of Zeus and William Shakespeare; Medusa wreaks havoc upon Internet predators; a woman is cursed to see the truth about her dates after drinking a little wine; and more. All of these very different dates begin with the hope that romance will result. Some will find a happily ever after, while for others there will be no qever afterq at all...a#39;a#39;But then I started to work at the animal shelter, and theya#39;re all my pets, my babies . ... Rottweiler came in yesterday, half starved and soasoaa#39;a#39; Trying to think of the right word, Mandy envisioned the drop-off doga#39;s yearning yet stoical dark eyes.
