Source: How to Ditch a Date That's a Dud
Whether you're getting set up, trying out online dating, or simply on the first date with a new dude, it's inevitable that you'll come across a few duds. Have no fear! It's important to pick yourself up, get back on the horse, and not be put off by what's out there. Instead of sitting on a bad date all night with someone you're not into, or worse, makes you uncomfortable, take charge of the situation. For some surefire ways to get you out of a bad date and back where you belong, read on.
- Phone a friend. I always have a friend check in with me after the first twenty or thirty minutes I'm out on a first date. It's great to have that safety net when you don't know someone. It also gives you an easy out if you need one. Tell your date that your friend has an emergency and needs your support. He'll get the picture.
- Spill. But please, not on the poor guy you barely know. Spill some water on yourself and make the move to head home.
