Face it, when you encounter a bad date, you just find it so excruciating to sit for another minute, let alone wait for the date to end. If you’re worried about hurting your date or leaving a bad impression, here are tips to help you graciously end a dating disaster.
The first option you can choose is to be blunt and honest to him. Make it clear that you’re not having fun and this is not the date you were expecting.
Sometimes, being honest about how you feel about a date will send your guy to reality in no time. He might finally receive some realization and be enlightened by your comment. If he asks you for a second chance, make sure that you really want to date him again before saying yes. Don’t give in to how cute he looks when he’s sorry, it might just be a ploy. If you say no, he might ask you if it would be ok to be friends. Make it perfectly clear if you want to be friends with him or not. Send him the right signals so as not to confuse him and send you down a dating disaster spiral.
The second option is one of the most choices you can use. Bringing your mobile phone to a date is a quirky way to be prepared for a dating disaster. A good pal can come in handy, too. Your buddy can call you whenever you give out the distress signal and you have one great excuse to leave the date! If you weren’t planning on a bad date in the first place and you didn’t have a pal planted to call you, you can always feign a call and pretend you’re talking to someone important! Your date won’t have the chance to object! Thank him for the date and leave as fast as you can!
If you can’t use all the other previous choices, you can always opt for the third one. The third choice is for you to practice those drama lessons in school. Yes, you have to play the part of someone who falls unfortunately sick on a date – a bad date, to be exact. You can use the headache excuse or the sick stomach excuse. If you have a creative mind, you can use all other pains that are associated with your body! Even the dear old premenstrual syndrome will help you on this one. Though some guys won’t fall for this drama, there’s nothing they can do about it. You will be sending the signal that you want to end this date and it has to end now message.
The last option doesn’t exactly leave a good impression but it can help at the most dire of times. Yes, you got it right, act like you’re a date from hell and your partner will practically end the date as soon as he can.
A date is supposed to be fun and with someone you want to have a great time with. If this isn’t happening, you always have the choice of ending it.
