How To Get Out Of A Bad Date

As someone who has been single over the last year and thrown back into the dating pool like a goddamn pork chop being tossed into a cheetah den, there are a few things I’ve learned.

If your date says he’s an “entrepreneur”, they’re more than likely jobless or a drug dealer. If they don’t mention their stature or build on a dating site, that wasn’t an oversight. If they don’t have a profile pic on their dating site, they are probably old or married. And if they mention how beautiful your skin is more than once, run like hell, Forrest. There is no way that he doesn’t want to WEAR you skin later, a la Hannibal Lecter-style.

But mostly, I’ve learned how to have a good exit strategy. You should treat every date like you’re going into a house fire – there has to be a plan on how to get out in case the whole thing erupts into flames.

Here, experienced daters offer the best (and most believable) ways of getting out of a bad date.

The Tipping Point

Many widely popular products we use today were not originally intended for that purpose. Whether by some random fluke or because someone was creative enough to find a more effective use for them, some of the things we use on a daily basis are a far cry from what the inventor had in mind.

For example, bubble wrap (yeah, that stuff we use in packing) was originally designed to be wallpaper, which admittedly might be fun for all of ten minutes until your downstairs neighbors complained about the noise. Lysol was originally intended to clean out vaginas and to act as a contraceptive. (So, SOOOO much wrong here). And whoever was the first to ingest bath salts instead of using them to clean…. how the hell did THAT enter your mind as a good idea?

The popular website Pinterest is a great source for finding really obscure ways to use everyday, household products, but even Pinterest users probably couldn’t explain the odd (and creepy) way these products became so popular.
