If you need to buy jewelry to get you out of a date that's not meeting your expectations.. instead of a catalog maybe you should be looking in the mirror to figure out what sucks about the dating scene.

I find that whole phone call thing to be such a coward's thing to do.

If you're not having a good date, just say it, then leave.

In my "dating years" I would rather have a "well, we're not compatible, what I'm looking for", etc.

I know that I did do my best to let the women I met on blind dates, that I was either interested or not.  I would do my best to be nice about it, but sadly, some didn't get it, having me to be a bit more direct.

I'll never forgot this beast of a (woman?) (she looked like a dwarf trying to be a drag queen), I see her and pretty much said "what is this, a joke?", turned away and left (she had lied about herself beyond all imagining, and STILL she tried common on to me extremely strongly, as I was walking away).  For five minutes she hurried to walk next to me, trying to come up with anything that would make me reconsider.  Nothing would have made me reconsider... seriously... NOTHING.

But I do like that SOS thing, that could be handy, as long as the person doesn't sit on their jewelry and end up having a squad team show up.

It's different for women. They could be with a real aggressive, emotional brat twice her size who doesn't take no for an answer. What you call cowardly in one situation (sacrificing honesty to avoid an awkward situation) is a legitimate fear in another. This product is good for keeping people safe.

As for your anecdote, imagine you were the dwarf and someone a hundred pounds heavier than you refused to leave you alone, coming on to you "extremely strongly." I imagine sure you'd welcome a serendipitous phone call then.

Women do things like this because there is a culture of men (not all men, but a culture none the less) who do not listen if a woman tries to politely establish a lack of interest. If it is the woman's choice, many men feel they can "change her mind" and do not respect the boundaries given. But if she "has a boyfriend" (so is taken by another male) or can establish an emergency excuse to break contact, the issue gets forced.

if it's that bad, then you leave, if the person won't let you, call 911, or use that SOS feature.

A phone call isn't going to stop a violent person.  Staying in a public place, not being alone with the person, and saying "NO",  is what one needs to do.

The phone call to ditch a date that's not to your liking is a cheap, cowardly play, and shows that you're too lame to be smart, can't handle yourself and situations.

I could understand have someone check up on you to make sure things are fine, but to play the whole "emergency, I have to leave" crap is plain childish. Why bother going on a date with the person if you've got feelings of needing a way out?

Just state that it was nice to meet them but it turns out that you aren't interested, not on the same page, not your type, etc. just act like a grown up.

If the person becomes a jerk about it, then deal with it as you would in any other situation with a jerk... tell them that it's over and you are leaving and call the cops if needed.

If you're that afraid of that person and that they may turn on you, why the hell are you going out with them in the first place, and worse case scenario, bring a friend. shessss...

The problem is she has no guarantee that her date would also act like a grown up. And she's on a date with him 'in the first place' to get to know thre guy. She's not going to magically know if he's the type to become an entitled pushy jerk who makes her fear for her own safety three drinks into it. That's how she learns. Going on the date.
 
2014-05-06 11:17:18 AM
It's just a matter of outsmarting the technology: Take your date to the Alamo Drafthouse & get a big tub of popcorn. Your general farker can easily figure out the rest.

And again... public place, where there's other people close by..

A phone call is NOT going to stop someone being a jerk.  If it's that dangerous, arrange a supervised visit and have him handcuffed.

Seriously... it's very different to talk about a bad date and a Law and Order episode in the making here.

Go to a movie, go play pool, go have a meal in a restaurant.  If the other person acts up so badly that you are in fear for your safety/life, the other people will call the cops for you, especially if you ask them to.

The ditch/way out phone call is cowardly and a complete childish thing to do.

But you could just continue and live in your mom's basement and have your only interaction with other humans be via Fark threads or Facebook [Like], since every man is an insane beast waiting for victims to slice apart.

It's not that black and white. A lot of this behaviour is escalating boundary-pushing. It's not "I'm going to kill you and wear your skin" right off the bat. It's based off of instinct and vibes. It isn't illegal. A cop can't do anything to stop it. But some guys don't take no for an answer. "I don't think we're compatible/it's not going to work" might be acceptable to you, but other guys see it as a challenge, as a woman playing 'hard to get.' A phone call with a solid excuse to leave is different.

You're saying they should all just ignore their own intuitions and instincts until the guy actually crosses the legal line, and then it's on them to get a stranger or a cop involved? They don't like him, they'd like to get away, but he hasn't done anything illegal or overtly violent so you think they should feel obligated to either continue the date or go against their better judgement and tell him basically "I don't like you," which could hurt his feelings and make him behave worse, all because of your own insecurities about being lumped together with jerky guys?

Who gives a shiat. You aren't going on another date with them so there's no "honor code" to follow. Meeting an ugly person and insulting them and walking away is childish too, but it doesn't matter since you'll never see them again.

wow... you sound damaged.... anyways... a fake call to wimp out instead of just saying, sorry not interested.  If you think that it's that scary to date and all guys is a danger that you'd need a lie to get out of their company, it's pretty sad.

Or not insulting them, just state the thruth about the situation "I'm sorry but you lied about XXX, and that's a big deal breaker on the start of any sort of relationship" or "sorry but you aren't my type, I'm completely not attracted to you, don't see any future here, sorry but I like women, etc. ". (ok that last one was a poke)

And you're taking it a lot more personally if you need to post something like that... sorry, I'm just saying that it's a childish thing to do... don't agree? well good for you...immaturity suits you fine..

BTW... if you think that using the fake call is all good.. if the guy (or woman) really is a psycho, he/she'll be waiting for you at your place, track you down, call you over and over, go meet your parents, show up at your work.

And when he/she finds out that the call was NOT real and there was no emergency, he/she'll go even more psycho on your ass.

So good luck with that....

The kind of guy to get all up in a woman's personal space and make her want an escape route is the exact kind of guy who's going to be insulted by any kind of rejection. A mere no will set some guys off, much less "I'm completely unattracted to you."

imfallen_angel: If you think that it's that scary to date and all guys is a danger that you'd need a lie to get out of their company, it's pretty sad.


I don't think all guys are dangerous. I don't think all drivers are going to kill me either but I always wear my seatbelt.

You seem to be taking delight or at least some kind of vindication in the idea that some women will just not be able to escape no matter what they do. But sure, *I* sound damaged.

That's fine, I was referring to:

imfallen_angel: I'll never forgot this beast of a (woman?) (she looked like a dwarf trying to be a drag queen), I see her and pretty much said "what is this, a joke?"


And calling people damaged and basement-dwelling and whatever else out of nowhere, then clutch your pearls and take the high ground soon after when all I did was quote your out-of-nowhere insult:

if you need to post something like that ...immaturity suits you fine..

I'm a dude who's never been on a truly blind date so I've never really thought about "outs" like that, but it really doesn't seem cowardly so much as convenient. Saying "I'm completely not attracted to you" to someone you just met right before walking away might make you feel better about being honest but I'm not sure that the net result is much more commendable.

Maybe I've just watched too much Seinfeld and Curb which are based around situations such as these. (cell phones would ruin probably 99% of seinfeld episodes)

errr.. you're projecting like A LOT here....

I'm the one saying that just be smart, go somewhere public if you do not know the person, and if you don't like them, just say that it's a burst, and you don't enough in common and leave.

YOU are the one obsessed with blind date = rape or worse and the woman would have been SAVED if only a fake phone call to take her out of there... like seriously... you are damaged.

I could give you a thousand scenarios but somehow, you appear convinced that lying, doing something childish is how to deal with things, because you're out with a psycho that unless a magical call comes in and magically flies you away, there is no other way out.

Just wow.... seriously if you have that bad a vibe upon seeing the person, just break the date right away and state that you would have hated to stand him up, but you have to go.

Get some help, sincerely and not being mean here...but there's just a lot wrong with your attitude here.

meh, when the person kepts repeating that being childish is the only "safe" way out from the psychos (which appears to be every one)... heck yes I'll state something about getting out in the world, and that's speaking as a father with daughters.

And convenient... ? then the person calls again and ask for a re-date, and how the emergency went and if all is fine, etc...

And for walking away and net results... for my example, it was that I had talked to the person for weeks over the phone and they had made themselves into something completely fictional.. I was pissed at being lied to, but I was very civilized, stayed with the fact that the person lied and didn't say anything about her looks.... so the net result? the person got a reality check about lying... nothing more. If she learned something, good for her, if she didn't, then she'll try again with another guy.
Not really my problem, I moved on.

For an overall picture about honesty, I didn't say to be rude, but honest... but the world in which we live in is full of crap and bullshiat, either you are part of it, or you don't.

Then you wonder why relationships fail so easily, and so many whine about no good ones out there... with all these head games, what else can someone cynical can believe.

Not sure why you assume I am arguing against going somewhere public. Going somewhere public is smart. This thing can be used in public.

imfallen_angel: Just wow.... seriously if you have that bad a vibe upon seeing the person


It's not just upon seeing them. It's through the course of interaction, well beyond first sight. By that time you could have already been seated and ordered dinner. You're making an awful lot of assumptions here about my point of view.

imfallen_angel: For an overall picture about honesty, I didn't say to be rude, but honest...


Some guys (if you would please be so kind as to acknowledge I keep saying some, not all, that would be great, as you've put words in my mouth about 3 times now) will take honesty as rudeness or insulting because they don't deal well with rejection. They only get the hint once she spells it out in no uncertain terms, and then she's a biatch.

imfallen_angel: YOU are the one obsessed with blind date = rape or worse


Wrong. Out of the two of us, the only one lumping all guys together as sharing some kind of violent hivemind is you. Like so:

imfallen_angel: every man is an insane beast waiting for victims to slice apart


Now, I'm not dumb. I know that was sarcasm. But it came from a place where you felt personally insulted that a woman might want to have an easy 'out' when it comes to creepy guys that set of her radar. You don't seem able to separate yourself and your emotional butthurt from those creepy violent guys. If you would come to see that some guys are creepy and dangerous and some are not, this wouldn't be an issue. You'd have confidence in your decency and not take offense at women wanting to stay safe from completely different guys from yourself. Yet here we are, you taking personal offense at the very idea a woman might get creeped out by anyone at all.

imfallen_angel: instead of just saying, sorry not interested


I keep repeating why this isn't acceptable for SOME guys and how there's no way to know if a date it ONE of those types and how it's good to have a parachute in case she thinks they might get huffy about an honest rejection, and you keep ignoring it. So I'm not going to reply to any more of your posts until I see some progress there.

wtf? seriously.. you're reading wayyyyyyyyyyyyyy to much into crap to "win" this...argument?

if the guy gets huffy about rejection? again I explained it to death... be in public, be polite about it, and if he weirds out on you in a way that it appears that he is a danger to your safety, call 911.  Getting a bail call is NOT going to help you if you get someone that messed up.

anyways, good luck with whatever fantasy you have about magic calls, you aren't worth my time.

I think that you've completely missed the point.. all I'm saying is if the date isn't going well, just say thanks but it's not working out, and leave... it's quite the opposite of "jacking it". Fafai is the one obsessing about the magic call that will save a woman from a psycho.

wow...

Woman: "Hello, 911? This guy is weirding me out and I want to leave but my instincts tell me he might make it difficult for me to get away from him."
911: "Has he abused you or done anything illegal?"
Woman: "No."
911: "There's nothing we can do. Call us back later if he has escalated to assaulting you. But whatever you do in the meantime, DON'T fabricate a reason to leave because that's just rude."

You're saying they should all just ignore their own intuitions and instincts until the guy actually crosses the legal line, and then it's on them to get a stranger or a cop involved? They don't like him, they'd like to get away, but he hasn't done anything illegal or overtly violent so you think they should feel obligated to either continue the date or go against their better judgement and tell him basically "I don't like you," which could hurt his feelings and make him behave worse, all because of your own insecurities about being lumped together with jerky guys?

BTW... if you think that using the fake call is all good.. if the guy (or woman) really is a psycho, he/she'll be waiting for you at your place, track you down, call you over and over, go meet your parents, show up at your work.

And when he/she finds out that the call was NOT real and there was no emergency, he/she'll go even more psycho on your ass.

So good luck with that....


Wow. You forget your meds today? Holy crap.

Mazzic518: Wow. You forget your meds today? Holy crap.


you know... few thread have ever made me roll my eyes is disbelief that some farkers can be this stupid and not have the ability to read or understand something simple.

Sorry but this one is just amazing.

it's easy... unless you're out with a psycho, which Fafai is obsessed about and appears to believe that it's a national problem, most blind/first date can be easily handled with a simple "sorry, but I don't see this working out" or similar.

Somehow, a bunch of you appears to not understand that concept and believe that a headgame is required to avoid a confrontation.

My question, if there's even a risk of needing such a tactic, why would you even bother going out with the person in the first place.

And yeah, I'd expect some very standard responses to that question, if only to "win" this ... argument?

I guess so many got friend zone or worse so many times that you're paranoid about it, or is it that it's this bad in 'murica?

I did my share of first dates, and lots of weird ones, but never once did I need to bullshiat my way out like this.  Must be a culture thing to need to lie, deceive, play headgames.

You sound EXACTLY like the type of person I'd fake a call to get away from.

/and make sure never had my actual number.

Strange that imfallen_angel is the only rational person in the thread and it's everyone else who is being ridiculous. Occam must be taking the day off.

Well, it certainly appears that I'm one of the few that believes in honesty and doesn't have to run with a tail between my legs.

yeah... welcome to Fark and all that, but dang, the levels of stupid used to be limited before... and now, it seems that Fark drops 10 IQ points per year.

So if you believe that being a coward and needing a fake bail out call, because you can't deal with a bad date, is so needed because the person wouldn't probably be able to handle rejection, and that a lie is the better way out, well more power to you.
