As an almost squeeze of Russell Brand (the comic asked Emily out following an interview last year) the pitfalls of dating is a subject close to the journalist's heart.
She says: 'It is supposed to be enjoyable and exciting and romantic but that is bullsh!t, I think it sucks.'
Included in Emily's ten reasons why dating sucks are: splitting the restaurant bill, stressing about getting married and the expense of impressing on a night out.
Talking about women of a certain age having to worry about whether he is 'the one' after just one date (reason two why dating sucks) she says: 'As you get older there's no point dating someone that you can't see impregnating you.'
And according to Emily it's not just girls who think that dating sucks, consider the poor men who have to fork out time after time.
She says: 'That cute thing that girls do
when it comes to splitting the bill, we don't mean it, and if you don't
pay for it we are going to tell all of our friends that you made us
split the bill.
'I know it sucks guys but you just can't argue with history and tradition, that would clearly be immoral.'
