While Date Wrecks focused specifically on the online dating arena of wreckage, YourWrecks casts a wider net, letting all the wrecks in.
Is your crazy ex-girlfriend STILL hung up on you and sending you four page letters? Did you have an date with a guy you met online only to find out once you got there that he was missing a leg? Have you been contacted on a dating site and you just HAVE to share this wreck’s profile with the masses? And what about you? Did you totally fuck something up and now you realize YOU’RE the wreck?
Send it all here, kids. Just use the submission tab near the top of the page or send your submissions to email@example.com.

Emily is a 24 year old English girl who spends far too much time online. She also recently moved to a new city and decided to give online dating a try. After finding out that a large portion of people on dating websites weren’t living up to her standards or even had the ability to type out readable messages, she decided to document all her awful experiences on YourWrecks. This includes crazy profiles she finds, awful messages she gets sent and weird but wonderful IM conversations she has. If she manages to go on any terrible dates she’ll write about them here too. Of course, YourWrecks wouldn’t be complete without some user generated content, so Emily hopes you all have some less-than-enjoyable experiences in your quest to find a suitable mate and you submit your stories to YourWrecks.
