You're about to turn thirty, all your friends are getting engaged and pregnant - and your body-clock is ticking.
Then you get an offer to move to New York. So you take a chance and break up with your boyfriend - only to land yourself in the singles capital of the world.
When Bridget Harrison arrived in Manhattan to work for America's most famous tabloid, the "New York Post", she was in at the deep end from day one.
Dispatched by day to cover murders and muggings in the roughest corners of New York, by night she began to write a column about her search for love in a dating shark tank.
So far so Sex and the City - until she realised the one man she was falling for also happened to be her boss (and unfortunately this wasn't fiction).
The highs are: Being sent out to cover your first breaking news story; Having the chance to go on a new blind date every week; and Realizing you love your editor.
The lows are: Finding no-one you interview can understand your accent; Going on a new blind date every week; and Realizing you love your editor.
