Guys: 5 Awkward Date Situations – Solved

You’re welcome in advance.

Cosmo did a new poll to figure out how women want you to respond to certain awkward dating scenarios and you might be surprised by the results. Try these this weekend when you take out your girl and I can almost guarantee you won’t be spending your nights sweet talking your xbox.

1. She mentions that her last relationship ended badly. She wants you to…
A. Change the subject
B. Ask for details

As low as ex-boyfriend talk ranks on your list of conversation topics, 55 percent of women say they want you to show you care about their feelings. So try “That sounds brutal. Do you want to talk about it?” Most people know not to yammer about exes on dates, so she’ll likely change the subject.

If she’s into you, she’ll say no.. but just knowing you cared enough about what she was saying to even ask means big bonus points for you..

2. Halfway through dinner, you notice there’s something stuck in her teeth. She wants you to…
A. Gently point it out
B. Ignore it

This can be awkward, but 90 percent of women say they would be horrified if they hit the bathroom and saw a gob of spinach clinging to their incisors. Say “Hey, you have a -little something,” and gesture at your teeth. Make light of the situation with a remark like “I hate when that happens to me and no one says anything.”

Nothing makes me more mad then when I get home after a date and see a tiny piece of pepper or something that could have so easily been dealt with stuck in my teeth. When I recall the events of the evening and how much fun I was having.. I don’t want to feel like an idiot for smiling the whole time.

3. She comes back to the table after spending 10 minutes in the bathroom. She wants you to…
A. Ask if she’s okay
B. Don’t mention it

There could be a lot of reasons why she was held up—maybe there was a line, she wanted to touch up her makeup, or that spicy tuna appetizer you -insisted on ordering isn’t sitting well with her. Either way, 70 percent say they wouldn’t want to talk about it, so play it safe and zip it.

Plus she’s probably doing a little after dinner make up touching up for whatever might be coming later.. ;)

4. The bill hits the table, and you both know she makes double your salary. She wants you to…
A. Pick up the check
B. Let her get it

It’s hard when she makes more in an hour than you do in a day, but 72 percent of women say they still hope the guy will get the check on a first date. So wave off her -wallet. If she protests, tell her she can buy you a drink next week. It’ll show her that you didn’t brush her off and you want to go out with her again.

Especially important if this is a first date. I would never even consider going out with someone again who didn’t even attempt or offer to pickup the tab.

5. You just dropped her off at her place and want to let her know you had a great time. She wants you to…
A. Text her right away
B. Wait till tomorrow

Most guys wait a while to follow up, which women don’t dig (68 percent want to hear from you within the hour). So text her when you get home to stand out. Of course, you don’t want to come on too strong, so keep it short. Try “Had a great time -tonight. Hope we can do it again soon.”

Don’t be an !@#. If you had fun, text her and tell her.

Girls- any situations you’d add to this list? Guys- are you surprised with some of the answers?

Happy Date Night.
