    18 Ways To Get Out Of A Bad Date

    Because most people don't handle rejection well, and we're way too immature to say "I'm just not that into you" to their face.

    So, you're on a date and it's a flop. Here are some ways to get out of it -- you might not maintain your dignity, and you definitely aren't helping your karma, but at least you won't have to listen to him talk about his ex-girlfriends any longer.

    1. Start hitting on someone else

    2. "Accidentally" spill your drink on your lap

    3. Pull the fire alarm

    4. Stage a coughing attack

    5. "I have a really good feeling that this is the year I become a mother"

    6. If the bar has games, get super competitive

    7. Get lost on the way to the bathroom (and then leave)

    8. "I have leftovers at home that are about to spoil"

    9. Say something that will blow his mind so hard that the date can't continue

    10. Keep a tube of herpes cream in your purse.

    11. Slowwwly back away

    12. DIY nausea

    13. Order something you're allergic to

    14. Check your OKCupid profile while you're on the date

    15. Use the F word

    16. Break out the bad dance moves

    17. Take a page out of Romy and Michele's book

    18. If all else fails, make your escape through the window

    Happy dating!
