Ever look back and wonder if your bad date was just an anecdote to a funny story you’ll look back and laugh at, or was it potentially threatening to your well being / safety? We are here to help you determine the difference between the two.
Whether you’ve never dated or you have a fair share of dating stories, we all know meeting up with a stranger at a bar for drinks or even a cafe for coffee can end in a couple of different ways. Either the date goes well and you want to see them again, or it goes well but you just weren’t vibing totally, so you tell them upfront or ghost them (we don’t shame ghosting here).
Next is the bad date.
It’s a funny story you can tell your friends later and maybe even learn a little something from. It’s not the best experience, but overall it was harmless.
Then there is the date you originally dismissed as a weird experience, but you later realize both your well being and safety was questionable.
As women, we have to be hyper aware of our surroundings at all times in order to stay safe.
