Yes, You Can Still Escape A Bad Date
Whenever we ask someone out on a date, we’ll never really know how it’s going to turn out unless we reach the end. Of course, we can hope for the best, but we are not fortune tellers who can determine what our near future is going to be like. You might have the best date of all time, but what if you have a bad one? How are you going to escape a bad date?
Escape A Bad Date Gracefully With These Tips
You have to be prepared whenever we go on dates – hope for the best, but be prepared for the worst. Just in case you have a date that’s not going as you expected, you can still escape it with the following tips:
1. Time limit
Before you actually go on your date, why not set a time limit beforehand? Tell your lady or gentleman that you’re going to be out until this time only. If everything is going well, then the limit will just leave the both of you longing for more. On the other hand, if things aren’t as smooth, then you can make a graceful exit.
2. Planting Seeds
Usually, one can tell a date won’t go very well early on. When you get this feeling, try saying that you’re getting a headache, but then press on. A few minutes after your first mention, express it again. When you feel like you can’t take it anymore, let your date know that you’re not feeling very well and that you need to go.
3. Call A Friend
Before going on a date, tell your friend to call you saying that there’s an emergency. You’ve probably seen this move in movies. It’s actually effective! Yes, you’re going to tell a fib and leave abruptly because of the fake emergency, but it may be better than sitting the date out even when you know that it’s not going to work out.
This may seem cruel, but you don’t want to be rude because you’re on the date already. It’s better to make a graceful exit and escape a bad date rather then you sit it out while you resent the person or go through awkward moments. For more tips on dating, make sure you read more posts on our blog.
