Ending a conversation

Conversations on the first date can be difficult. Even if they start of well an the conversation is flowing smoothly and effortlessly, chances are you will eventually run out of things to talk about, simply because you do not know each other that well. There is also the chance that the two of you will just not hit it off well, and that is okay. There are some great ways to end date conversation, and there are some bad ways. Here are a few ways to not end the conversation you would like to quickly get out of.

Are you stuck in a conversation that you would really like to get out of. Maybe the subject matter is boring you or you are just simply disinterested. Do not be rude! Even if your goal is to get out of that place and conversation as fast as possible, do not make that obvious. Regardless of if there will be a second date or not, your conversation partner is still human and it is common courtesy to give him or her some respect. Listen to what he or she has to say, and then a path will open for a smooth exit. Do not just cut your date off and split. It’s just not cool!

Try to not insult your conversation partner. If things are not going so well and all of the things you feel you are obligated to say have already been said, that is perfectly okay. What is not perfectly okay, is insulting the person with discourteous behavior so that you can move on to the next potential date. Bring up something that the two of you have already discussed, comment on it, and then wish that person the best of luck. That is a smooth and kind way to move on and perhaps gently let him or her know you are not interested in pursuing a relationship in any way.

Most people tend to worry about what to talk about during a date, but few give thought to how to end it if it doesn’t go according to plan.
