“You have to kiss a few frogs before you meet Prince Charming,” I’m sure you’ve already heard this saying. If you’ve had a few bad dates and you feel deflated, you should certainly take a look at some good things that come out of bad dates, which will help you boost your confidence.
It’s extremely difficult to find your dream man on your first date, but never give up if you have unsuccessful dates. Here are a few good things that you can learn from bad dates.
1. Witty fun stories
One of the best things about bad dates is that they can provide you with great stories to tell your friends. Feel free to tell your stories your coworkers and you will have your entire office at work laughing at how bad it was.
Laughing will help you to feel better! The more tragic your date was, the juicier the story!
For many girls a first date can be quite daunting, scary and nerve wracking. Your dream man is sitting in front of you and you’re overwhelmed with excitement and completely unable to say the word.
Another good thing about bad dates is that a bad date lets you practice your dating skills. After several bad dates and a little bit of practice you’ll be much more confident and positive on your next successful date.
When you are trying to find a boyfriend you may accidentally stumble upon a man with a shared passion and interests. Going on dates will definitely throw you into the path of new people, and if that nice guy is not suitable to date, he would make a perfect climbing partner! Think twice before forgetting him.
4. Fresh perspective
You went on several dates, but it turns out you spend those dates wishing you got back along with your ex or just tucked up in bed in your pajamas. One of the good things about bad dates is that it can bring fresh perspective on what you want and need from the relationship.
Your new guy might be much better than your ex-boyfriend, but less fun to be with. These small things will help you reassess what you really want.

5. It gets you out of the house
The great thing about a bad date is that it gets you out of the house. Even if the evening was boring, you did something new and even different that is far more useful and memorable than just watching another chick-flick. Rather than watching those TV shows, go out and meet someone!
6. Secret places
Okay, your date looks and behaves terribly and you know that he is not for you, but it’s not the reason to get disappointed. You still can have some fun.
Your date might take you to a jaw-dropping location, or a secret restaurant, which is only known to locals. Find out all those secret places and take your friends there!
One of the best things about having bad dates is that when you eventually meet a nice guy you will not hesitate to try and make it really work. You will have some knowledge, and when a wonderful date happens you might naturally come across as happy and enthusiastic and things will simply fall into place.
Dating is an incredibly fun journey that can introduce you to new guys and new places. It’s important that you don’t reflect on bad dates as failures. Learn from them and keep searching your dream man!
