One of the first women I met online appeared to be a “9” from her profile pictures. She also seemed very cool and spoke openly about her sexual desires. We set up a meeting for drinks the day after our first conversation. I put on my best outfit and cologne for this date. I even paid for an expensive haircut because I really wanted to impress this chick. I always try to look nice so I make a good first impression, but for this girl, I tried a little harder.
Then she showed up. My first reaction was, “what the fuck?” Let’s just say I barely even recognized her. She looked thin in her profile pictures. Either she posted pictures from 5 years prior or she put on about 50 pounds overnight! What a letdown. This was the most disappointment I had suffered since my Dad told me he lost his job right before Christmas when I was 12 and said that Santa wouldn’t bringing me any presents.
Although I’m cruel enough to share this story with you, I wasn’t cruel enough to let her know of my disappointment. Instead, I bought her a couple of drinks, acted interested, and after a while, I told her I was getting tired and was ready to go home. I didn’t want to hurt her feelings. When we were chatting online, we talked about her coming back to my place afterwards to have sex. So for me to just up and leave without bringing her back to my place had to be done smoothly.
>How did I pull this off? I started acting a little tired soon after we met. I fake yawned a few times. After an hour or so of chatting, I simply said, “hey, I’m thinking that later in the week might be a better time to hookup. I really need to get some sleep”. That worked fine, and here are a few other ideas to gracefully exit a bad date without being rude…
Go to the bathroom, text a friend, tell him to bail you out
This actually worked perfectly for me once. I went to the bathroom, sent my buddy a text letting him know that my date was going bad. I told him to call me in 10 minutes and to make up some story about how my grandmother was sick and in the hospital. He called, screamed into the phone that my grandma was in the hospital after suffering a heart attack (I made sure my date could hear). I apologized to her and said that I had to leave to go to the hospital.
Tell her you’re just not in the mood tonight
You have to be careful with this one. She could take it the wrong way by thinking you’re not in the mood because of her. Don’t make her feel that way. Once you meet her, you probably already know if you want to hookup with her. So don’t lead her on throughout the night. From the very instant you meet her, talk about how long your day was. Make some shit up if you have to. That way, after a few drinks, you can use the “you’re a cool chick, but I’m just not feeling it tonight” excuse.
It’s bound to happen to any guy that ever tries out hookup dating sites. You’ll come across a woman that looks great online and ends up being fugly. Don’t let it bother you. Women know how to hide their imperfections online. It’s not the end of the world. Just go back online and find another chick. Chances are she will be as attractive as she was in her profile photos.
