We've all been there… you meet someone you've been talking to for a while, you say a polite 'hello' and head off for your first date. Once you do that, you realize that there is absolutely no chemistry between you two, or that the person you meet is not what you thought they would be. In many cases, the lack of chemistry is the least of your worries as you sit in a bad date and just pray that time goes by quickly.
Bad date stories are all too common but that doesn't mean that you have to suffer through more bad dates and pick up some more 'adventures'. Instead, you can use these awesome tips and tricks that will help you get out of a bad first date without hurting the other person. Sounds impossible? The opposite! Check out how you can easily make it out of a lousy date easily.
Tips for Getting Out of a Bad Date
1. Arrange an accidental 'crash' from a friend
Getting someone to text you with an ''emergency'' in the middle of a bad date is completely obvious, and that's not what you want. Instead, be a little stealth and text one of your friends to come and whisk you away to freedom. If you really don't want to have another bad date story, give your friend a heads up that you might call him or her and ask them to come and be the third wheel that will cause the date to end quickly.
2. Warn your date about plans later on
One of the best ways to get put of a bad date is to make like you have plans later in the evening. When you set up the date, tell the person that you have plans after the date. If the date goes bad, you can make it short and leave to get to your "thing". If the date goes well, you can tell the other person that you'll text your friends and tell them you'll be late, so it's a win-win either way.
3. Become clingy
There's nothing more off putting on a first date than a clingy person who starts planning your future together before you even finished your first drink. So, if you want to wiggle your way out of a bad date, be that clingy, annoying person. Start talking about the future, how many kids you want and just be extra all the way. If you do that, you won't have to end the bad date, because the other person in going to do it for you.
4. Talk politics
No matter what's going on, politics is always a touchy subject for a lot of people. If you want to stir your bad date to its end, start talking about politics. Let the other person express their opinions and then just say the opposite. That way the date will end faster than you thought and you'll both be able to go home.
Bad date horror stories are just a part of life, and if you feel like you have to get out of another bad date, just use the tips you read, and you'll be scot free.
