Excuse yourself to the bathroom make a quick call to a friend and have them call your for an "emergency"!

That one, but to say wait 20 minutes before ringing so it looks genuine

Hey, how come Nate gets outta the date the easy way? And what will Epona think!?!?

I'd tell them one of my cats is dying & I have to go. When he asks how I know that, I'd tell him I have ESPN(not ESP, ESPN). That outta scare him off from further dates, too!

My best friend is single so we have this little thing worked out. Half way through her date I'll call her cell phone. If she answers it's not going well and she's able to fake and excuse to get out of the date. If she sends me to voice mail then she's having a good time. It works out well for her.

That's exactly what I'd do!

Well, the phone trick works. And so does the bathroom thing. I know, because I've done both.

I´m sick of the stomach......

Go to the ladies room, call your friend..tell her to call you in 15 minutes with an emergency and tell your date you need to go.

Yup, I agree! Get a friend to call with an emergency! Course how would I know - I haven't been on a date in over 20 years!

Yeah - what did we do before cell phones?

I would just say "this is not workin for me".

Even if you get someone to call you and leave, you are still going to have to deal with this person eventually. I would rather deal with it from the beginning and be done with it.

I agree with this.


The key point here is you have to get them to leave you. There are a few ways, depending on who you are dealing with.

You could delevop cramps all of a sudden and ask them to run to the nearest mini-mart to ge tampons ( the one in the bathroom are out ). That might get him to flee.

Or as the conversation flows bring up kids, and not just one..A whole bunch. Six or 8 would be a good number.Then bust out your wallet pictures of them. Mention that you want to have at least 4 more.

Or you can tell them ex boyfriend stories.

Before I meet Colin- i had a "system" when i was dating around. If the date was going lousy. I would excuse myself to the ladies room- then once in there call my best friend renae and tell her to call me back in 3 minutes with some sort of emergency. I made sure i had my phone on and when she called i'd always have an excuse (hehe cuz we made it believeable- she'd be rambling really loud on the other end and i'd act franctic appologizing for having to run out on a date then head out as quick as i could) Works like a charm!!!!! Also- there was one date where i just couldn't stand it any more- this looser wasn't even worth a "sympathetic phone call to try and turn him down gently" - this looser took me out to a mexican resturant- and within 30 minutes he was drunk off his butt! I had water! He got drunk and started to make a jerk out of himself - so i stood up went to the cahsier and paid for my food then told him that he should REALLY consider going to an AA meeting sometime and that i was soooooo done with that date. / Geesh- all those lousy dating experiences make me SOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO happy that I have Colin He's the best!
