From the director
After being dumped by a number of girls in 2006, and determined to stop the cycle of disasters that was his love life, the director states:
"Ever since I was a teenager all of my relationships with girls have ended badly. In my life so far I've calculated that I've had 13 serious relationships*, 47 minor erotic encounters and 16,425 unfulfilled sexual impulses. These interactions with women have almost all ended in personal humiliation, recrimination, regret, bitterness, shame and failure. I've started to wonder if I'm doing something wrong.
I believe that if I can find out the reasons why I keep getting dumped I'll be able to improve myself and hopefully have a successful relationship in the future. So I'm going to talk to every woman I've ever been out with and ask them to tell me what's wrong with me.
If I can make a film about it, it will also give me a job for the next few months."
Since making the film, the director wrote:
"It's possible that I was over optimistic about how pleased my ex-girlfriends would be to see me. The whole process turned out to be extremely painful and humiliating, for pretty much everyone involved. Also, a number of other issues which I hadn't initially planned to explore in the film started to become unavoidable. I can't stress enough that one of those issues in particular is no longer an issue for me. I have fully recovered and am so much better. I really am. Anyway, I hope that my humiliation and misery will be a source of amusement and pleasure to those that watch the film."
