Tips for Ending a Bad Date

There is nothing worse than a date going downhill. We’ve all been in those situations where we just want to get out but don’t know how. If you follow these simple tips you can cut a bad date short without being crude or cruel, on the other hand, if you were only on the date to try and have sex, be upfront and suggest a visit to a swingers party either early on in the date, or even before you go on the date..
Pre-planning
While it sounds cliché, it’s still one of the most effective ways to gracefully dip out of a bad date. Have a friend or family member on standby. If the date starts to take a downward turn, simply excuse yourself to the restroom and call the standby. Arrange for them to call you in 10 minutes or so and just play along with whatever they say. The fake emergency will get you out of the date without looking like a jerk. Anytime you are going on a first date it’s a good idea to plan for an early date. That way you can cut out early with the excuse of a prior engagement. If things do go well, you can always pretend to call and cancel on your prior engagement.
Body Language
If you decide to see the date through to the end, you want to end it in a way that makes clear you aren’t interested. Don’t get any more intimate than a handshake. Don’t offer to call them either. Simply say you’ve had a good time and thank them. If they offer to call you, simply smile and don’t respond. You can always ignore the calls later.
