How to Save a Terrible Date
Bored out of your mind on a date? Listening to the other person droning on and on... and on? Before you sprint headlong for the door, here are some things to try to save the night from complete disaster!
Before the date even starts, don't dread it.Genuinely look forward to it. The person might be The One or they might become your best friend. Whether you're doing it as a favour to a friend or whatever, see it as an opportunity, not a wasted evening.
Don't judge a book by its cover.Pick a cliché, any one you want, they are all the same. The person may look like they got dressed in the dark but what you're wearing not be to their tastes either. So don't judge them the moment they walk in.
The person is single, like you.Remember the feeling when you've just broken up with someone? Maybe the person is going that. You are at the stage when you can handle thinking about the other person while keeping your composure. They may be at the stage where they blubber at the mere mention of an ex. Comfort them. Ok, you don't have to like the person but show them compassion.
Really listen to what they say.Try to interest yourself in what they say. If you actually listen, you may find they are actually talking about something interesting!
You know that once you're bored or your mind has wandered, it's hard to get back onto the task at hand.So order yourself a refreshing drink, go to the bathroom and return ready to listen to your date.
Note the things you like about them.Their hair? Their personality. Whatever it is, appreciate it and tell the person.
We all know the people who the moment you open your mouth, they huff and they puff like they might want to blow your little house down.They annoy the hell out of us! Don't be that person. Even if your date is boring you, just make an effort to be interested. That way you seem interested. Just because their views differ from yours, don't immediately put them down.
Treat your date how you'd like to be treated.You don't want them texting other people at the table. You want their full and undivided attention.
Be gracious.Don't be snooty just because this person isn't your type. Thank them for a good evening. You may not consider this person for another date but they may be a good friend. Think about the things you appreciated about them. Maybe even consider talking to the person again in a couple of months. You never know, if they have just broken up with someone, they may be in a better place by then.
End the night well.Wish them good night. Maybe exchange numbers. You could have made another good friend. You may not have a new friend or lover but at least you have been gracious and polite. And that is an achievement. This person may recommend a friend for you would could be the one. Its great to meet many different people.
