Oldest trick in the book since the invention of cell phones. It doesn't have to be Covid.

My friend needs me, my mom got hurt, my babysitter needs to leave. Oh, I didn't tell you I had 4 children. My bad.

That dude dodged a bullet. Never date someone this passive.

So many ways to get out of bad date without making someone freak out that they need to get tested themselves.

no doubt, she was also a bad date.

"The date was going well, she seemed really positive."

My college roommate was hitting on some chick, she was very uninterested so she told him she had crabs to get him to leave.

This dude was so horny, he didn't care.

She went out clubbing and farked a stranger the same night, so there's a decent chance she won't have to fake it next time.

Remember the 9/11 spec script episode of Seinfeld? This could be one of the plots in a covid related one.

what's so hard about saying "i don't see this working and i don't want to waste your time so i'm gong to bounce?"

act like the adults you want to date FFS.

jaylectricity: Oldest trick in the book since the invention of cell phones.


Trust me, it predates the cell phone.  Before cell phones, you'd have a friend call the restaurant's land-line with a fake emergency.  And before the phone was invented, I'll bet Native Americans were sending up smoke signals to get out of a bad date.  "The teepee collapsed!  You have to come home right away, Humping Dog".

2KanZam: Yep... I've done that...


Well, I've said that as an excuse to not meet them at all, not meet up and make them think they were exposed.  That kinda feels like a dick move.

THIS!!!

Seriously, telling someone that you tested positive for an infectious disease that they now may have caught themselves is NOT a mature way to get out of a date.
 
2022-01-18 11:36:34 AM  
The best (worst) reply to her is "If you didn't have COVID when the date began, you do now.  We should really isolate together."

She'll need to get the multi-orifice COVID/Herpes test now.

What the hell ever happened to politely ending the night early?  If they ask why, you just say you don't feel you're compatible and you don't want to waste their time on something that isn't going anywhere.

The phone comes into it if they give off a stalky vibe and you need a friend to come extract you.

I would have definitely bought you another one and kept you talking.  I want to hear where this goes.
 
2022-01-18 11:44:49 AM  
So she left the guy thinking he had a long term exposure to a potentially deadly disease, that's so cute and funny, I'm glad they covered it in that tone.

I knew a girl and this was my take.  Watching from a huge distance.  What I noticed was there were so many selfies and so much "I'm stronk and Indeependant" and "I don't need a man to define me"  and "sorry chum I'm not a 1 night kinda girl" that I saw she was torpedoing her relationships before they even started.  Then she'd share her texts where the guy says look I did 5 min of research on you and you are in and out of relationships too often and usually dirt bag the guy if he dumps you.  Now her? 4/5 out of 10.  Thicc girl with 2 kids from a marriage where she didn't know the guy very well because he cheated and she kicked him to the curb.

I liked her, the little I knew of her.  But lost all respect when she would publicly aire her relationship issues and have an overinflated self worth, standards that Prince Harry would have trouble meeting, and she honestly should SHE wasn't the issue.  Suiter after suiter would come and go and the template was all the same.  Shallow selfies w "Mr Hott" and he's always look like a frat guy.  Well those guys have certain traits and most know college frat guy isn't settle down and raise kids guy!  So on to the next guy and on and on......
Then you get the self pity post about how all guys want is this and no nice guys exist.  Well truth be told they do exist.  You're just passing them up for hot frat guy!

So now in her 30's looking to vlog about her mid life dating experience!  LMFAO.  When your tastes are Ferrari and your budget is Civic you need to re-evaluate what you're looking for.

I see a lot of women still in this pool!  Can't find Mr Right.  Mr Right has the Rock's body, Timothy Chalamine face, and wealth like Warren Buffet easy to catch those guys!

I really think there should be an unwritten rule on the first 3 dates where you can bail without looking like a bad person, just say it isn't working, pay the tab and leave.
 
2022-01-18 11:59:26 AM  
Everyone knows about the fake text/call during date. If she wanted to walk out of the date like a boss, she should had faked a positive pregnancy test. Walking out of the restaurant loo with a pee stick, with a marker drawn blue plus sign, sets up a much funnier date-ending situation.

That's dumb and passive aggressive as well. You want to get out of a bad date? Say, "I'm sorry but this isn't working for me." Split the check and say best of luck to the other person. There's plenty of potential partners on this planet.

Half the problems we have dating are caused by people being passive-aggressive little shiats instead of adults. No, I'm not expecting it to change.

people arent perfect moron ... do you tell fat people "just control your calories"? ... what easily resolved failings do you suffer from?  obviously a lack of human understanding as a start


There's a difference between "not perfect" and "needlessly cruel" - which telling someone they've been exposed to a deadly pathogen in fact is. That could have forced the person to quarantine - losing income or potentially employment. That's farking farked up.

I knew a girl who faked cancer to get out of a relationship.....

Because she had to go to XXX to get chemo for a few mo.  While she was really cheating with someone else.  I even saw the go fund me page...Until a few weeks later and the guy removed it and wrote a public apology!

GLAD I didn't go any further with that human garbage can!

some people are mature and considerate However. The dating scene has a lot of things that cannot be described as maturity, good luck finding it.


/ and that was 20 years ago, no idea what kind of zoo it is now.
