Escape My Date Will Get One of Your Friends to Call You During a Bad Date

Website of the Day: Escape My Date

This is brilliant! For all of those times you get stuck in a painfully boring situation, a bad date, or end up at a really annoying dinner party, you can use a cool new site called Escape My Date to help you get out of a sticky (or lame) situation. Discovered on makeuseof, Escape My Date is great because it uses Twitter to reach out to one of your friends and rescue you from your bad date.

All you have to do is sign up with your Twitter info, create a profile, and select the friends that you would want to phone you during a situation you want to escape from. Say you find yourself on a bad date, you just direct message @EscapeMyDate and they will send the message to your chosen friends. If your friends don't call you within five minutes, Escape My Date will make an automated call to you — so no matter what, you'll have an out!

And if you know beforehand that the date may be on the boring side, you can always schedule a call to yourself using Wakerupper!

Thought this might be cool until I read what it really does... pretty useless.

Oh stop being a wussy and just tell the truth. I don't know why people feel the need to lie when you don't like this person anyway. It's not like you are likely to accept a second date and I know I would prefer for someone to say hey I don't think this is going to work out than tell me some crap about their friend having and emergency. I had one of these bad dates once and about midway through I just told the guy. For some reason once the pressure to be cool was off and he knew I wasn't going to be making a second date his real personality came out and I discovered I actually did like him as a person. The two of us are now great friends and not only has he set me up with one of his friends but he's dating one of mine.

Because if no one responds within five minutes.. their service will automatically call you. I'd do it just for that. I'd rather have a robot call me than my friends lol! But I don't think it's working anyway. Twitter suspended their account.
