Blind dates, as exciting as they can be, are a gamble one plays in hope of hitting a jackpot. And more often than not, like in gambling, you might find yourself wanting to run away from the table.
Now, the part that makes you go bonkers is that since you’re dealing with a human (that too a girl), you have to be real cautious in what your reactions will be upon seeing something that you want to run away from. These next 5-10mins will decide whether you can walk away from the blind date with dignity or will you walk away losing that dignity. Worse, you don’t want your actions to give an impression that you actually like that person, in which case, it’ll not be a matter of 5-10mins but 5-10days before you’re able to walk away at all.!!!
These are a few tips on what one could do; if one ends up in a messy blind date.
Public Place: Pick a place centrally located to meet for the first time. Make sure it’s not too close or too far away from the girl’s place. (You don’t want to drop someone home, if you don’t like them). Moreover, in a public place there are a lot of distractions you can find to help you out of that awkward date. You don’t want to be sitting in a fine dining restaurant with someone who you cannot stand for more than a min.
Standby Friend: Always take a friend with you to the blind date. And if no one is available, ask a friend to call you 10mins from the time you’re gonna meet your blind date. That is one call which can act as a lifesaver for you, as you can use that call to tell your date that something urgent has come up which needs your immediate attention.
Be Honest: Honesty is the best policy. Although, don’t blame me if you end up on the wrong side of your date’s sandals.
