What’s worse than not going on dates? Going on boring dates.
You know the kind of terrible date which makes you gauge your eyes with a folk, burn your hand on the hot sizzler plate, discover fourth law of motion, take a swim in a hot magma-filled volcano or even call the emergency number and have police arrest you just so you could escape the alleged meet-cute.
We have all been there (And if not then probably you are the terrible date). Being in this sticky situation can be jeopardy made of nightmares. Do you lie? Do you be blunt about it? Do you just get up and leave without saying a word while making eye contact all the while?
Let DKODING light the path for you and give you fascinating ways to survive an unpleasant date
● ‘Is it really that bad?’
Before you decide that you guys are completely incompatible and cut the person from your list of potential future lovers list, consider whether they are worth your time. Is it them or the situation you guys are on? Don’t judge in the first few minutes and torment yourself a little more before you say “Later matey”.
● Assess the situation
Sometimes the activity you do on a date can highly affect the way a person acts. Zoo- may be your date is afraid of animals, Trampoline park- your date might just sweat a lot and hence is awkward, park dates- Maybe they are afraid of running into someone. Or they are just awkward to be around someone as pretty as you. (Yay self-ego boost). Just ask them if anything is wrong and if they confirm you that it’s their best attitude. Then just snap your fingers, chant a spell and vanish slowly.
● Play a game with yourself
Well, you are bored and don’t know what to do while your date is either been ranting about his(her) office people for 15 minutes now or either you are the only one talking while the other person is just yawning openly. What to do? Have some fun. Count the times your date says ‘you know’ or ‘bro’ or ‘my ex’. If they aren’t listening to you try putting in bizarre words like ‘banana’ or ‘Trump penis’ in between and see if they caught on.
● Ask them of their passion
Generally, people like to talk about themselves a lot. So get your date to head this conversation with some enthusiasm. This way you can also glimpse into the kind of person they are. Even if you are not interested in the person sitting in front of you, they likely have at least one interesting thing about them. The most boring thing they can say is that water taps are their passion. Well, in that case, you got yourself a bathroom designer or a plumber may be. (Optimism my friend)
● Make the date more fun
So maybe the café you are sitting in have board games that you guys can play, join people playing a game of darts/football/charades around you (If you are daring), count the times couple behind you steals a kiss, or look for something that you can do as a pair that might just bring some excitement in your meeting.
● Cut it short
“Oh wait I have to take this”
“That was my boss and she wants me to send her a presentation ASAP”
“It’s in my laptop that’s at my place”
“It was nice meeting you”
“Sorry gotta go”
It happens to us all. Bad dates are still dates right. So do it for the experience. People can always teach you something even if they are passionate about water taps.
What do bad dates and wedding have in common?
FOOD. Do it for the food.
