7 Tried And Tested Ways To Get Out Of A Bad Date

Getting stuck with a bad date is every woman’s nightmare in the dating market! As much as we know that some of us may have to go through many not-so-great men (and women) on our path to finding our person, we fear the possibility of going on a date with someone, and not knowing how to get out of it. To be honest, you can reasonably decide if you like someone enough to want to get to know them or not in about 30 minutes. But, 30 minutes or 3 hours in, no one is prepared to get out of an awful date. This is where we step in: memorise these seven things you can safely do to get out of a bad date (before you go on your next adventure).  

1. SOS call from a friend

Give your friend a heads up before you go out that they might receive a desperate text message or call from you asking to be rescued. It doesn't matter what they say; you don't have to have a story in place (you don't owe that to your date). Just answer, look shocked and worried, hang up, hurriedly say 'I have to go. It's an emergency,' and leave. The only caveat to this is that it is quite clichéd!

2. Say you have to feed your pet

Casually glance at your watch or phone, and with a startled look on your face, say, "Oh my god! I have to feed my pet. Gotta go. Bye!"

3. Tell him you have a curfew

Even if you are meeting for lunch, just say you have to be home, otherwise your folks will be livid.

4. Fake a call from an ex

There is an app that makes fake phone calls, with legit names and faces. Before you head for the date, set a time to receive that call, just in case. If the date is going well, put your phone on silent, and say, "Oh it's a friend. I'll call him back." If it's not, answer, and have a fake, angry conversation with the fictional caller. After the call, tell your bad date that you are still very much in love with your ex and you can't do this.

5. Fake throw up

Gag. Run to the bathroom. Make a lot of noise. Come out, and say you are sick, and have to leave right away.

6. Excuse yourself to go to the bathroom, and don't come back!

Don't forget to carry all your belongings with you!

7. Get up, walk out, and block the said bad date

Done and dusted!
