Just imagine horribly, like she's crying into her drink half drunk 30 minutes into the date and telling you...again...another story about her ex, the one that got away---why stay? Would you just feel like it was rude to leave mid date or would you be hoping things would somehow improve? Curious, because I've never understood why people keep it going on horrible dates.
You nailed it. Yes, I would stay because it would be rude to leave. It would in my eyes, at least. I would like to think things would be improved since I never give up hope and believe everyone deserves a second chance. If I heard that story, I’d question her why she even accepted a date with me in the first place.
A terrible no redeeming qualities date has only ever happened once for me, and reminded me why thankfully I always drive myself on a first date, but this guy was just incredibly full of himself, he made some very off color comments that made the hairs on my neck stand up, and he actually snapped his fingers at the waitstaff like they were his servants and complained about just about everything. He then made negative comments on what I was eating and asked extremely personal questions, it was awful. I just could not see this going any further or improving somehow by a second date, so I just told him, I appreciated the invite, this isn't going to work, paid my half, and off I went. I just no longer wanted to tolerate what I considered indecency and rudeness or create any sense of false hope that this was going well or would in the future but to each his or her own. You can certainly decide for yourself, as we all can, what you're willing to put up with or if you see it as being rude to leave early.
