The Skirt: How To Avoid The Worst Date Ever

"The Skirt" is an ongoing series in which Four Pins' resident lady friend, Rachel Seville, becomes the most important woman in your life.

Everyone’s always talking about baaaad dates. I can’t tell you how many times I’ve heard, “I just went on the worst date ever—again!” from someone I invented so that I could have a Typical Girl Friend™.

Just like my invented friend, who is totally low drama and loves popcorn, you’ve probably been on some bad dates. And I would bet that one or maybe one and a half of you have been a bad date. But I imagine it can be hard to evaluate what makes a man a particularly bad date, especially if you’re...a man.So, I went ahead and I culled from my own real life experiences with bad dates to ensure that you’ll move boldly forward onto a lustrous career of best date ever.
