7 Times You Should Not Feel Guilty About Cancelling A Date
More times than none I’m an advocate for the throw on some lipstick and go motto however, there are times where showing up is not best case scenario. Dating is a world with its own rules and regulations and if you ask me, is not a time where you should show up when it’s the last thing in the world you want to do.
A date should be something you look forward to and have butterflies leading up to. So, for those nights where you have a date but are unsure if you should cancel or not here’s a word from the wise to help make your decision a little easier.
7 Times You Shouldn’t Feel Guilty For Cancelling A Date:
When You’ve Had The Longest Week, Ever
It’s been the week from hell and you’ve never been happier to leave the office. All you can think about is crying into your pillow before catching up on some much needed sleep. Then it occurs to you …. DATE NIGHT. Cancelling plans is a much better option then subjecting him to your stressed out breakdown.
When You Have Nothing To Wear
We’ve all been there, you’re trying to get ready and everything you try on you hate more than the previous outfit. You’re not only convinced that someone came into your closet and stole all of your cute clothes but you’re also entirely over it. When going on a date you should feel sexy and confident AF. If it’s just not working, don’t force it. Call and ask for a rain check and snuggle up in your oversized t-shirt.
When Tea Sounds Better Then Vodka
When he’s all “let’s grab a drink” and you’re all “I really don’t feel like drinking tonight” – cancel. If you don’t feel like guzzling down alcohol, that’s ok! Tell him next Friday works better for you and brew yourself a cup of hot tea instead!
When You'd Rather Be Sweating
Regardless of the stage or your relationship, he should understand you prioritizing your health. If you’d rather not miss your workout class then don’t - schedule accordingly!
When You Just Really Want Alone Time
I realize the irony of talking about being alone when discussing dating but sometimes the only person you want to be around is yourself. Never feel guilty for cancelling a date to indulge in some 1:1 time with yours truly.
When You’re Just Not Into Him
If you’ve already been out with him a time or two and just aren’t feeling it – do yourself and him a favor and cancel your plans. There is no shame in calling a spade a spade and if the connection isn’t there then there is no need to waste each other’s time.
When Your Girlfriends Call
You had a momentary lapse in judgement and said yes to a date when you already had plans with the girls – UH OH. Unless he is your prince charming and your friends fully understand you missing out on girl’s night, stick with your original plans and hang with him another time.
