Did Lucy Watson's dating games stop the Jamie Laing relationship?

Lucy Watson and Jamie Laing were the talk of last season's Made In Chelsea and since reading Lucy's book The Dating Game, it seems she may take some blame for them not getting together.

Lucy Watson and Jamie Laing are the Made In Chelsea almost relationship we've all but completely given up on, but was the failing partly down to her bizarre dating game play?

The Chelsea girl's book, The Dating Game reveals all sorts about her love life, as well as all the sage wisdom she has acquired over the years.

We broke her Enigma level code, and worked out that "S - The Player" refers to Spencer Matthews, "AJ - The Rebound" refers to Andy Jordan, and "JL - The Almost Boyfriend" refers to Jamie Laing.

We know, someone call up MI5, we're your new recruits.

So, of course we skipped through to find all references to 'JL' and found Lucy's advice and behaviour borderline ridiculous.

"Text him then don't reply"
She explains, "I often used to text JL, and then never reply when he texted me back. It left him totally confused."

She went on, "I'd eventually get back to him saying, 'sorry for late reply, I've been really busy.' When actually I'd been at home playing with my dog."

"Always keep him waiting 5-10 minutes"
When arranging a date with 'JL' she warned him to be on time and then arrived over 5 minutes late.

Apparently, "after getting over his initial annoyance JL spent the rest of the evening trying to impress".

"Don't let him stay over"
"Even if you have had sex. It confuses him."

According to Lucy, if you send him home, he will "think about you all night."

Aim to confuse him
Much of Lucy's advise is based around confusing the guy you're dating.

Call us old fashioned, but confusion is just not our end game.

Sure, protect yourself, but changing the time or day of your date just to "leave them confused" seems bizarre and actually pretty impossible.

We're lucky if we can find the time for the date in the first place!

Lucy Watson's book, The Dating Game is out on 22nd May

In fairness to Lucy, Jamie's moves in Miami would have put a pretty big spanner in the works for us too. What do you think? Was Lucy's behaviour part of the problem? Tweet us @handbagcom
