First Date 911! 5 Ways to Show Him You’re Not Interested

What happens when you’re on a terrible first date? You try to hint that you’re just not that into him. Here’s dating advice to show a guy you’re not interested.

So I went on a first date last night. I met the guy on and had hopes that we would connect. But there was no connection! No chemistry. No tickling of my pepa. Nada. Minutes in and I was hatching up an escape plan.

But he didn’t get it. He still talked about our next date and how “his focus was on me.” If there were an alarm I would have pulled it and screamed, “Mayday! Mayday!” Alas, I had to stick it through. Cause he was my ride. And I didn’t want to hurt my chauffeur’s feelings.
