Bad Date Tip: Don’t Waste Time
If you realize you are in a nightmare known as a bad date, please don’t waste your time or the other person’s.

Bad Date Tip: Speak the Truth in Love
When you believe your “bad date” is not your dating match, you need to communicate clearly to the other party. But being honest doesn’t mean you need to be brutal, especially if your date is “feeling the love” of the moment. Remember, you are dealing with a brother or sister in Christ ( or you should be). Respect their dignity and self esteem, and think about how you would want to be treated if the shoe were on the other foot.
