We've all had 'em: dates that are off-the-charts miserable. They begin badly. They continue badly. They end badly. How do you endure them? And how do you overcome them? The best thing to remember is that a bad date only lasts a few hours; it'll be over soon. Try to handle it gracefully without hurting the other person's feelings. Remember, you don't have to go out on another date. And chances are, you'll get an incredible story out of all that pain.
