Here is a very good and funny article on how to get out of a bad date… I wish Gigi had had this before some of her dates!!
If you’ve ever met someone on a dating site, it can be quite intimidating and awkward. It can be a rather difficult task to meet someone and follow through on a blind date. Before naming the time and place, its best to have a backup plan in case things don’t go the way you had planned. Let’s face it, blind dates are the riskiest form of dating and by far the scariest. It’s much like climbing into a Super 8 motel bed without checking for bed bugs. Do your homework and look under the covers first before jumping in with both feet.
Check out the venue before meeting your prospective date.
It may be a good idea to get a good look at the place where you and your date will be meeting. Make sure you know where all of the exit doors are located, as well as restrooms and accessible windows; should you need to make a quick getaway. If this is the tactic you plan to use, make sure you at least pay for the bill first. This is assuming that he’s not a tried and true jerk off.
Fake an Emergency
This by far is my favorite and best tried and true method for letting a guy down easy. Have a friend place a phone call or text to your phone, so that you can leave without being misunderstood or rude. Pretending to feel ill is always a winning excuse and goes over seamlessly and without a hitch. Just excuse yourself by visiting the ladies room and rub a little dark shadow under your eyes and your good to go! He won’t think twice about taking you home, especially if he thinks the contents of your meal might make a grand entrance right into his lap. He’ll vicariously feel guilty about keeping you another minute longer.
Get Your Date to Leave
Here is a little tip that is a clever and devious way to say goodbye to Mr. Wrong. Spill a drink on him by pretending to trip on the tablecloth or your dress. This hopefully will send him running to the bathroom or at the very least on the hunt for a waiter. If you’d rather not make a scene and draw attention to yourself, send him on a fruitless mercy mission to go ahead and get in line for tickets at your favorite nightclub down the street and then grab a cab while still have the chance.
If all Else Fails-Behave Badly
If he hasn’t gotten the hint by now, he never will. This tip is for the guy who’s got a rock for a brain. It’s time to start behaving badly and drive him right out the door due to embarrassment. A little flirting with waiter can’t hurt along with chewing with your mouth open and eating with your fingers. Try and fire away some nasty insults and break out the remote control fart machine if necessary. Speaking loudly and using hand signals is always a great way to embarrass him.
