Ways to end a bad first datePosted on: January 7, 2013 13:53:03
Whether a first date has gone well or has resulted in awkward small talk and painstakingly drawn out silences, bringing it to a natural end isn't easy.
Getting the timing and tone right is crucial when rounding up the first meeting and a lot can hinge on the parting words of a date.
You can start to plan the end of a date before it even begins, by making your own way to the place you arranged to meet. By committing yourself to drive, or relying on the other person to pick you up, you could be setting yourself up for a fall before you even begin.
If things aren't going too well, a tense car journey back to your house could only make things ten times worse. Plus, by making your own way there, you can avoid being forced to find a polite way of declining a coffee and escape the lingering about on the door step for that kiss you desperately don't want.
Going somewhere which won't require you to commit several hours is also a good plan. A coffee is a great idea, because you can quickly sup your drink, make your excuses and go if things aren't quite what you hoped.
However, if things are going swimmingly and you don't want the moment to end, then don't leave it until you are settling the bill to suggest going somewhere else. Try to avoid being too pushy and leave the ball in their park to make the decision. By recommending a place you can go afterwards though, they at least know you are keen to spend more time with them.
They say actions speak louder than words, so if your date wasn't what you hoped for and you have no intention of meeting up again, avoid leading them on with a kiss. It is always best to be polite at the end of a date, so thank them for the date and leave on good terms without having to break any promises of meeting them again soon.
