Thats why the first date should really just be a "meet n greet" so to speak. half an hour to chat about wahtever is fair enough. If it isn't working out a simple "well, I gotta get going" I think is obvious enough. If it looks like they're not getting that then you might have to say this isn't gonna work out nice to meet you anyway. Que sera, sera.

LMFAO ^^^

If my date is going bad and I want to get the hell out I tell them that it's not going anywhere and I need to go. I'm pretty blunt and I don't want to waste anyone's time.

Alluria well the walk is fine if the coffee goes well enough. My answer to the question is get out before the walk. No ned to go past a quick drink if it isn't going to work. Blunt is fine, but one should also be polite as possible at the same time. Unless of course the guy/girl becomes an ass. Then it's game on ;)

eric, I'm always polite unless of course they are rude to me. I don't like to hurt feelings but sometimes it has to be done.

I had one good date with someone until he called me later that night and told me he was lying naked in his bed thinking about me. eeeeeeeewwwwwwwww, too creepy.

NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO Date #2.

for the first dates i've gone on, i've always tried to make them something that allows for quick getaway in case it goes sideways on you...and that are easily extendable should things go right.

simple stuff like coffee or a drink...you can suggest a walk afterwards, and if both people are up for it, a-walkin' you shall go. if not, one of the people makes some lame excuse about working early the next day, or just says..."i don't think so."

it's always best to arrive in separate cars...just in case...

I once did the run out. I know bad me.

I met someone for drinks without seeing their picture. Totally not my thing, because people tend to lie when you can't see a visual. Well this person very much did. We were supposed to go and drive seperately to another resturant for dinner. I never went.

May the lord strike me down.

But I have grinned and beared a couple bad dates. I guess sometimes I am nicer than I should be.

They end when you get tired of staring at each other without anything to say....

"When I asked why he was looking at me so intensely he replied "I need to memorize your face for later".

that ROCKS! For him the date was probably going just as bad. I can see me saying something like that if im not into things. We've all had bad dates, some of us make the best of them by having a little fun to ourselves ;)

I was on a date that was bad bad bad a few years ago. She was creeping me out, was WAY more of a druggy/skid than she let on, and halfway throught the date, some random 40+ gay guy tries to pick me up. She had an "ambiguos name" and wasnt around for a moment, so I went over to the creepy gay dude, said hey, I think you should give me a call sometime... soon. And I gave him her name and number. I dropped her off at home and never heard anything since.

If a date is going really bad, at least get a good story out of it!

I started to date a guy and we went out together for eleven years. I thought everything was great. He had his place and I had mine so during the week we talked but didn't see each other till Friday, spent the week-end doing everything and back to normal Monday morning.
Well I found out that he was seeing a different girl everynight for the 11 years for fun sex through 2 online sites. I couldn't believe what he was doing and that really upset me. I am still sick over it.
You never know anyone and I worry about going out with anyone.

I'm having a hard time following this thread....but here goes.

When the date is going bad.... be it seconds into it... okay...retraction...be it 15-30 minutes...end it!!! Man Up...Woman Up...realize that it's not going to happen, no point wasting anyones time, money, energy.... just admit it ain't going anywhere and smile and say good bye...pretend to be mature and say good bye. ( no snarky insults)

Try having someone leave you an "accidental" voicemail, panting, jerking off. I guess he just wanted to hear my voice on the voicemail and forgot to click off, lmao!

Bad dates only happen when people don't make the right choices when it comes to dating someone. First you need to feel that good vibe or sense of security where you can confide in that person enough to trust them.
