So you meet this guy, but he’s not exactly what you expect him to be? You’re out on a date with him and 10 minutes into the date, you realize you want to get out.. what do you do? Here are a few ways to deal with that bad date – and how to escape easy!
1. Create a deadline
Within a few seconds, you should know if your interested – if you know you’re not going to be. Create a deadline by telling him that you only have an hour or so, then you have to something. You can say something like “I’m sorry but i only have an hour because i promised a friend i would help her with her wedding invites”
2. Plant the phone call
This is the oldest trick in the book – but it works! Get your friend to call you within 30-40 minutes of your date, and if the date isn’t going too well, you can use it as an escape route. Pretend you need to attend immediately to an emergency whether it’s work or your friends relationship issues.
3. Play sick
It’s time to bring out your inner actress – if you’re not feeling the date, start acting sick. Run off to the bathroom for 10 minutes, and come back looking and feeling sick. Tell your date that your feeling nauseous and just head out the door. (Make it fast!)
4. Offer to set him up
When you’re on the date, and you already know it’s not working out – suggest setting him up with a friend of yours. This some what draws the line on whether your interested in him or not. If you do this, hopefully he gets the message.
5. Make it a threesome
If you’re not so into the guy and you’re not sure how it’ll turn out, bring a friend! This somehow breaks the ice as well, take it as a ‘casual’ kind of meet up and not a date. With a friend there, it’ll help cover up any awkward moments.
6. Friend zone him
It’s time to bring out the ‘F-word’. If there are no sparks flying, let him know that he is a good “friend” and then the message will be known. Nothing kills the mood faster than the ‘F-word’….. seriously!
