Don’t have more than two drinks. Dress smartly but not stuffy. Avoid talking about religion, politics, your last relationship, clowns and mental neuroses. And for god sake, wear something black.
Everyone is happy to hand out advice they think will ensure you have a standout first date. Some of it’s reasonable, sure.
Clowns? They scare a lot of people. Probably best to leave that for a second date, unless you’re in Cirque du Soleil or you’re both horror film fanatics.
And that’s the point. Everyone’s different and will approach their first dates in whatever way they think suits them. Okay, now that we’ve got that out of the way, we’ve got some advice. Come on, you had to see that coming?
Give yourself a dating advantage
As we’re sure you know, if you’ve spent any time dating, sometimes things just don’t work out. Yes, we know: shocking news.
Now out of these star-crossed dates, occasionally one star doesn’t consider things to be as bad as the other star. And that one star who thinks he or she would make a pretty constellation with you, might want to insist on getting in touch with you in the days, weeks, and sometimes even months ahead.
At best this can be a creepy experience, at worst it could be darker. The good news is that we can offer a way to help prevent either scenario.
The Hushed burner number app gives you the ability to get as many burner phone numbers as you want, which you can hand out to anyone with whom you may be heading out on a date.
Delete contact with your bad date
These burner numbers work exactly how any number works: you can make calls, receive calls, and send texts from them. And you can do it all from your existing smartphone. Here’s the difference: when someone calls or sends a message to your burner phone number, it will ring on your smartphone, but you’ll answer it through Hushed.
All of this means that your identity will be partially cloaked by a burner number. And here’s the best part. You can keep your burner number as long as you like or, if things turn out badly, you can erase it forever.
So, let’s say your date is hitting a lot of negative marks. He’s getting drunk, he’s talked about his recent depression after breaking up with his last girlfriend, he believes Barack Obama is a Russian spy who is secretly financing ISIS from a money laundering operation he’s built through Subway sandwich franchises.
And as you’re teetering on the edge after hearing all of the above, he finishes things off by explaining that he likes to dress up as a clown every Halloween.
Restore peace to your galaxy
The good news is that with Hushed in your arsenal, you can end this mismatch right away by deleting your number immediately, which will ensure he can’t get back in touch with you to share his thoughts on the Illuminati.
Dating can be a lot of fun, but it can sometimes be a minefield. Hushed gives you an advantage to help manage that uncertainty as soon as it crops up.
No need to endure a series of awkward texts after the fact on your real phone number. Now when you leave a bad first date, your phone number will disappear as well.
Try out Hushed today and see how it can give you a little bit more comfort as you burn up the dating scene.
