#Whatsthe411: The Top Ten Excuses We’ve Used to Cancel a Date

Have you ever had to bail on a date when you realized the person SUCKED?  A new survey found one in five people have done it.  And we’ll tolerate a bad date for 51 minutes before we ditch the person.

People were also asked about bowing out ahead of time.  44% of us have done that.  On average, we’ll cancel 19 hours beforehand.

Here are the ten most common excuses we’ve used to get out of a date . . .

1.  “I’m not feeling good.”

2.  “A family member is sick.”

3.  “I’ve got a work emergency.”

4.  “I have a headache.”

5.  “I forgot there’s something important I have to do.”

6.  “I realized I’m not ready for a relationship.”

7.  “My car broke down.”

8.  “I have a deadline at work.”

9.  “A friend or family member showed up unannounced.”

10.  “I got stuck in traffic.”

Here are a few that just missed the top ten:  “My pet is sick” . . . “I forgot we were grabbing food and already ate” . . . “I can’t find the place” . . . “You look like my SIBLING, and I can’t get past it” (???) . . . and last but not least, “I got arrested.”

The poll also found it only takes 25 minutes before we know if there’s a “spark” or not.  So on a first date, that initial half-hour is really important.

The top signs a date isn’t going well are awkward conversations, and not laughing at each other’s jokes.
