- A first-date policy
Have a policy
Have a dating policy. Meeting for a weekday lunch will provide a limited time frame and a safe, public location.
Be graceful and keep up your end of the conversation, even if sparks aren’t flying.
Remain tactful. Express disappointment without negativity. Say, 'I’m having a good time but I was hoping we’d have more chemistry.' If your date seems nervous and awkward, tell them you’re feeling the same way and suggest ending the date.
Be honest at the end of a bad date and say why you don’t want to go out again. For instance, 'You’re nice but we don’t have a lot in common.' Or, 'You have interesting things to say but the conversation was more one-sided than I like.'
Get up and leave
Get up and leave if a date is touchy-feely, rude, abusive, or drunk.
