A lot of people have been on a bad date or several bad dates in their lives. It’s not a big deal, you just have to move on. However, a lot of the times, a bad date can be caught mid-way if you knew what to look for. Once you start noticing these 7 telling signs, it means your date is going bad and you need to either find a solution or just call it off.
Smartphone 1, You 0
You know how you’re not supposed to keep looking at your smartphone when you’re with your friends or family because it’s not polite? It’s a hundred times worse when it happens during a date. Service Staff Attention
If your date keeps flirting with the waiting staff, that’s a pretty bad sign right there. There’s a huge difference between being polite when ordering and practically asking for the service staffer’s number.
Sighing, blowing out air, putting their chins on their palms and elbows on the table, or downright crossing their arms across their chests are unmistakable mannerisms that spell out how bored or frustrated a person is becoming. If your date starts doing any of these things, your night is a wreck.
Oh, So Many Complaints
Hearing your date keep yammering on about everything wrong in the world is not a pleasant experience. You should not have to keep hearing them complain about every little detail, especially if you are trying to have a good time.
Uncomfortable Moments Of Silence
Believe it or not, there are actually times when silence between two people on a date is pleasant. However, you can usually tell if that is the case or if the silence is becoming awkward. If it’s the latter, it’s time to think of something to say or get out of there.
Overflowing Display Of Arrogance Or Disdain
Okay, so there are just people who start getting really loud, boorish, arrogant, or disdainful once the night wears on and they’ve had a few drinks. If it’s happening too much, you have a bad date.
Then we get to the cherry on top. If the date that you barely know starts getting too touchy-feely with you, you know that you need to start running. Don’t even wait.
