1. Fake An Allergy
This can be tricky, make sure you pick an allergy that is actually possible to fake, try a gluten or dairy allergy, and avoid nuts and shellfish allergies (its hard to fake a swollen face!)
And make sure the date isn’t a doctor before you take action.
2. Pre-Planned Rescue Phonecall
This is always a great idea to have, just in case.
Have a friend who knows you are on a date, and send them a discrete txt message, perhaps when in the bathroom, and ask them to call you in 5-10 minutes time giving you an escape!
3. Falsify An Injury
Again, make sure the date isn’t a doctor or a physio, it will only make them want to help you!
For the ladies, twisting an ankle if you are wearing heels is a good way to stop a date in it’s tracks.
Or, for the men, pulling a muscle showing off your skills could always to the trick.
4. Spill A Drink On Yourself
Ruining your outfit with a drink can call for going home to change, and then staying home…
5. Be Unlikeable
This is the easiest to pull off, no one likes a horrible person.
However it is hard for some people who just don’t have it in them to be mean.
For those people, maybe just being honest is the way to go.
6. Be A Bastard
Much like being unlikeable, nobody likes a mean person, and no one likes being openly judged on a first date, or ever!
It is a sure fire way to get out of a date early.
Ask 1 or more of the waitstaff on a date: enough said, how rude!?!
7. Don’t Order Anything At All
Nothing will make your date more awkward than being the only one eating.
8. Order The Messiest Meal (eg BBQ Ribs)
Eating like a pig is definitely not an attractive look, and is certainly off putting for many people.
Plus they always taste the best!
9. Be Bold And Just Say It Isn’t Working
This is in my opinion the best way to go, being honest and saying its not in your interest to keep seeing your date.
It may be awkward at first, but then there are no pestering emails/calls to ask for a second date and you can rest easy with a clear conscience.
