How to Escape a Bad Date
Most of us have been on a date that hasn't gone well, and some of us have even been on dates where part of you wanted to escape through the back door of the restaurant or out the bathroom window. Maybe the girl you were with didn't exactly fit the picture on her profile, maybe she was self-obsessed, or maybe the two of you simply were not compatible. Whatever the reason may be, this guide will help you get out of any bad date the right way and allow you put an end to your nightmare.
There is no reason you should remain in an uncomfortable situation for the sake of someone you barely know, so if the date is not working out, use the direct approach and simply tell her. If the date isn't going well for you, she may not exactly be having a blast either; however, just because you think it's a bad date, don’t just automatically assume that she feels the same way.
It's a good idea to be honest about your feelings in such a way that your date doesn't feel offended or hurt and tell her something like "We don't seem to have much in common and I don't feel the date is going well" or "I just don't see this as a good match and I don't want to waste anymore of your time, so I'm going to cut this short." Mention to her that you appreciate her time and company to soften the blow.
