5 Excuses to Get Out a Bad Date That Only Work in NYC

Dating in NYC is exhilarating, if only because there are just so many people to meet. Your Tinder and OkCupid apps are blowing up! But sometimes a bad date is just…bad. Luckily, you’ve got some unique excuses to get out of them just living in this city!

● “I Have To Walk My Roommate’s Dog”

The perfect get out early excuse. Your roommate doesn’t really have a dog. Heck, you might not even have a roommate! But get a friend to text you this if things go wrong. “She can’t make it home, I have to take the dog out before it messes up the apartment, sorry!”

● “I Have To Go Before My Train Stops Running This Weekend”

Usually, certain lines shutting down for weekend maintenance is the worst, but use it to your advantage on a date going wrong. I mean, you’ve got to catch the last train before they stop running, right?

● “I Have To Move My Car For Alternate Side Parking”

It is likely you don’t even own a car, but they don’t need to know that! And everyone knows the worst thing in the world is trying to fight a parking ticket.

● “I’ve Got To Wake Up Early For Spin Class”

Those 9 am Sunday spin classes are a killer and you really can’t be out too late or drinking too much before hand. It’s getting late, you’re pretty sleepy, and you’ve got to be up and at ‘em tomorrow.

● “My Train Just Got Evacuated”

The perfect excuse when you decide against going on the date before you even get there. Just say you left already, your train got stuck, and oh no now you are all being evacuated! Who knows when you can get there… let’s take a
