Ending a Bad Date

bad dateYou are on a blind date but you do not like the guy. His appearance may not be that appealing to you, but his attitude is what irritates you. You really want to end the date but you cannot just walk out. That would be just rude. Here are some tips that may help you end a bad date quicker than you say, "Another drink please."

Do not beat around the bush

Be straight to the point.  When he asks for your phone number, simply say that you have no intention of seeing him again.  Being nice would just give him mixed signals, which could lead to a false sense of hope and even some unwanted advances.

End the date amicably

After dinner, thank him for a nice date, but gently explain to him that you do not feel there is any chemistry between the two of you. If he offers you to go with him on another dating activity, like watching a movie, simply say no. You do not want to prolong the suffering between both of you. It is also best not to leave your phone number to him, especially if he looks creepy.

Do not leave your date standing

It is just plain rude if you exit through the toilet window or excuse yourself to the bathroom, then bringing your bag and coat along as you escape out of the front door. However, these drastic and desperate measures are only applicable if the date is really bad or if you feel deeply uncomfortable.

Do not tell him you want to be friends unless you mean it

If you do not want to see him again, why befriend your bad date in the first place? Unless you actually believe you can be friends with your date, avoid any contact with him at all. 

Do not end the date with a kiss

Giving your date a kiss, even though you do not like your date, could only send out the wrong signal.
