Pretending to get an emergency text or phone call is perhaps the most commonly used tool for leaving a date that's going from bad to worse,but is its popularity starting to make it a little transparent?
I've never been forced to bail on a bad date early,partially because I seem to enjoy mild suffering.I test myself: how much incompatibility can I reasonably withstand?How long can I go without speaking to this person next to me?How long can I feign an interest in what he's talking about?
Still,it's good to have some back-up plans in case of a true emergency,like if you're trying to at least get home beforeThe Daily Show.("He can take my dignity but he cannot take my STEWAAAAAARTT!!!!!") And unless you are an exceptional liar,I think that the fake emergency phone call routine is getting a little obvious,and a little boring.
With that in mind,here are some alternatives.
1。Self-sabotage: Start说话，字面上永远不会停止。This technique requires persistence,because some guys are going to be too polite (or maybe even too interested) to start running when they realize you have no intention of letting them speak any more.It might be a fun challenge to yourself,though.It's like a filibuster of love.An example: "Do you think we all experience senses the same way?Like,okay,我认为热狗是恶心,但是它们对我的味道和对你的味道一样吗？and I just hate them because I experience them differently?Or do they taste actually different?And what about sight?Think about all the colors,and how we maybe see them differently.例如，orange.Green.Turquoise.Red."
2.毛额：Go the bathroom.When you come back,告诉他你到处吐。很尴尬，but also: who cares?You want to get out of there,don't you??"I don't know how I threw up that much," tell him."It was in the toilet mostly,还有一些在地板上，and a little in the sink.I tried to clean it up but then it got on the mirror.Just like,a streak across the mirror.More likely than not,I have some in my hair.我还能尝到，in my mouth."
__3.The Aliens Are Coming:__Mid-dinner,look up,startled,at someone at a table nearby.Pretend like you're very afraid.When your date asks you what's wrong,tell him you've just seen a hybrid."Like a car?" he asks."No!!!" you whisper."Like a half-man,half-alien,sent here to colonize the human population??????" If he doesn't ask for the bill immediately,can you send me his number?Because he actually sounds like someone I might be interested in.(♥ Mulder ♥)
