Inverness woman created 'The love binders' to make light of some of her worst dates.

Dating enthusiast Abi, from Inverness, has shared a colour coded table that she designed to make light of her most horrific dating stories this Valentine's Day.

From being trapped in an escape room with someone who only spoke with the voice of a computer game character, to hearing about her date's 'antique collection'; it is fair to say that this Invernessian has seen it all.

Abi said: "One of the worst dates I have been on would have to be a guy that I met who was obsessed with the army, and his favourite noise was a gunshot. He always wore a camo cap and would leave the toilet seat up."

She added: "Another one for the books was a guy who complimented me so many times I had to make a rule that it was only one per five minutes.

"I stupidly agreed to go to an escape room with him and he was so annoying and was talking with a Yoshi voice.

"I managed to get out in 34 minutes because I was so desperate to leave.

"When I was sitting on the bus ready to leave, he did heart hands to me."

Abi explained that one man she dated 'kissed his mum on the mouth'.

She said: "I should have run then.

"It wasn’t just a hello kiss, it was multiple times throughout the day. She even tried to kiss me on the mouth once!

"To top it off, he also had a collection of over 300 pop heads."

She also recalled how one date told her that he had the biggest sea lion antique collection and was obsessed with Captain America.

Abi plans to continue on her quest to find her perfect match despite the rollercoaster of finding love she has been on.

She said: "I'll definitely continue dating because it's fun and every date I learn more about myself and what I want or don't want.

"Just hopefully one time I'll find the right guy."
