About This Quiz

You've found someone interesting, and the date is set to happen. You've squelched your nerves, and you've preened your hair to perfection. Everything's going to be great... until the date gets underway, and it's a disaster, filled with long silences and surreptitious checking of watches. It's an awkward first date! How are you going to handle it? Let this quiz figure it out for you so you know what do to next time!

We're going to present you with some of the most awkward dating moments you could possibly encounter on a first date. Whether your date drones on about their ex for an hour, belittles the server, or it simply turns out you have no sense of humor in common, we want to find out how you would handle yourself. Your responses will help us to gauge how you would deal with them in real life. Would you excuse yourself and not come back to the table, or would you keep drinking until the date started to liven up? 

There are no right or wrong choices when it comes to navigating an awkward first date, but there are more compassionate choices. Try to be on your best behavior as you go through your quiz date. Once we feel you out, we'll let you know how well you did!
