Appeared on Elite Daily: How to Feel Comfortable On a First Date

3. Download A Safety App On Your Phone

Matchmaker and relationship expert Bonnie Winston advises her clients and friends to download smartphone apps for their safety, since even dates that start out well "can turn weird quickly." 

At any point you start to feel uncomfortable, Winston tells Elite Daily, you can turn on one of these apps and have a subtle, but authentic-sounding excuse to leave. For example, the app uSafeUS has a feature called “time to leave,” which sends an urgent fake phone call or text from your parents or roommate, such as "I AM LOCKED OUT, COME LET ME IN."

These apps can definitely provide you with a good fallback excuse if you find yourself having trouble leaving on your own.
