If you're on a relatively pleasant first date with someone but know you don't want to see them again, how long do you feel obligated to stay?

I think it would be rude not to stay until the end of the meal.

And, seriously Leslie, this is an awkward way to tell me it didn't go as well as I thought it did. Is it the beard?

Well it depends on what the date is. That's why dinner for a first date is always the way to go, so you can keep it to under an hour. If it's anything else you either have to wait it out, or just pull the cord.

I say between 55 and 60 minutes. And dinner for a first date is frightening - too much of a time commitment. Drinks or coffee or perhaps caramels.

If it's pleasant, stay the whole date. You may get your dick wet.

Overnight or until his wife comes home.

Until you can think of a graceful exit. And I concur with Leslie, drinks is preferable to dinner for a first date.

if its pleasant, i would make a night of it. but i wouldn't make it a late night if it was during the work week. i guess as long as the conversation is flowing, i'm in.

If she's attractive, throw a hail mary and leave in the morning.

I am a horrible first dater as I can make convo with most people and generally think I'm amusing and like telling stories, so I've had dates that I know are going nowhere last 3+ hours. Which might be kinda misleading for the dude . . . but I think at a minimum you should stick around for at least an hour.
