Claire Swires ...yum.
Read on for 1,600 words of steaming douche-iness that an investment banker sent to a girl he went on one date with, who never returned his calls or texts.
In her words, the date was "horrific".

Why do we love gossip so much? Why are the gossip pages commonly the most widely read of our newspapers, second only to the front & back pages? Why does noone want to admit they revel in it?
