How to Walk Out Bad Dates: 3 Easy Tips

April 21 2015 | CeCe Olisa

So, last week I shared some of my bad dating experiences in this post. I explained that it’s 100% okay to walk out on bad dates, but I realized I didn’t give you girls tips on how to walk out on a date that isn’t going well.

I never felt good about myself after suffering through a bad date. I did feel good about myself when I valued myself enough to end bad dates early. So if you’re in the dating game right now, here are three tips that helped me escape bad dates.

Video Recap:

  1. “Put the Date in Perspective” If we’ve already decided that our entire romantic future depends on the person we’re meeting for a first date, its going to be really hard to walk away. Remind yourself that you don’t know this person, they don’t owe you anything and if they aren’t what you’re looking for, there’s no need for you to waste your time energy and self esteem on whatever nonsense they’re putting you through.
  2. “Keep it Convenient” The more we invest in something, the more we want out of it– that includes travel time. If I take trains, planes and automobiles to get to a date I may stay longer than I want to just to make the trip worth it. I always try to choose date locations that are convenient to my job or apartment so that if I need to leave, its not a big deal
  3. “Make Plans” Have plans with yourself in case the date doesn’t go well. Scope out a movie time or museum nearby (I left a date to go get a manicure and it was perfect). This way if you need to leave the date, you’re not left all dressed up with no where to go.

Dating can do a number on our self esteem, but its up to us to remember how awesome we are, no matter what our dating situation is. You are valuable, your time is valuable and you don’t need to spend time with people who don’t see what you’re worth.

Hope these tips are helpful to you! xo

    I have had a couple of horrible bad dates and what was more confusing was that they weren’t first dates! They were second or third dates! Learning to value myself and my time enough to know for the next time that things like that wouldn’t be tolerated allowed me to meet my boyfriend. I went into our first date not putting any hope or expectation on it and let me tell you. IT WORKS!! He even said that he had gone in with a similar mindset having dated a bunch of random girls for a date or two at a time. When the expectations are in check you can truly see what someone is all about instead of hoping and praying that they will save you from singledom.

    Thanks for preaching that we’re worth it Cece!! I’ve been reading your blog for a few months and I love it! I’ve rethought a lot of things about what I’m looking for as a partner, not because I’m a psp but because I’m a human being who deserves basic respect!
