By Sarah Babar | 18 May, 2017

We’ve all been there. There’s no shame in it. Sometimes you have to go see someone, especially if a friend’s set you up. It could even be you scouting out your perspective rishta. But what happens when everything blows up and you need a way out- an escape route. So, before things go completely downhill, you need to get out, right? For your sanity and theirs, right? Also, it doesn’t make you a very bad person if you do. Just saying. So, here I am, here to help, so you can get out of that bad first date. Doesn’t matter if you’re a guy or a girl, we’ve all been there, bub. It’s okay.


1. Have a backup plan before you go

Just know what to do in case things don’t go well. Keep reading for more pro (lol) tips.

2. Call a fake family emergency

You could always fake a random burglary at your place. One that requires you to get back home ASAP.

3. Spill coffee on yourself, run to the bathroom to clean it and just leave

But please, make sure it isn’t hot. Because then not only will you leave with awkward memories of the date, but also with 3rd-degree burns.

4. Get a friend to call and pretend to be your mom

You know that one call we all get? The one where our mothers yell at us to get back home? Yep. Fake that one. Nobody will question you.

6. Act like a total asshole and be the worst possible person ever

Don’t be an ass to the waiter, though. But pretend to have issues with everything. The lights, the food, the conversation.

7. Act obnoxious

Or you could just sit, pick your nose, your ears, the meat out of your teeth. Chances are, they won’t stick around for very long.

8. Display your worst habits ever

Anger, irritability, irrationality, lack of logic, these would ideally work.

9. Pretend to get sick suddenly and leave

Throwing a tantrum gets you bonus points.

10. Find a topic to argue with your date about

If he strongly believes in, say, the current government, become the biggest supporter of the opposition.

11. Tell her it won’t work out in the future so this is pointless

Get straight to it. You don’t see it working out? Say it. It’s honestly better for both of you.

12. Tell her/him you have explosive diarrhea

People usually get disgusted by bowel-related issues

13. Tell them about your very “personal” problems that just began

And watch them panic. Always fun.

14. Pretend like your Abba ji’s friends are also at the same restaurant

Abort abort abort!

15. Or you know, you could just be honest

You could always tell them if you’re awkward or if you can see y’all don’t click at all.
