You're not on a "bad" date; you're on the worst date ever. And considering the string of duds you've been going out with lately, that's saying a lot. The ice in your already watery Aperol Spritz starts to melt as you listen to yet another story about someone named "Staci with an 'I'," who gave them "a lot of mixed signals, even though she said she didn't want a relationship."

Bad haircuts grow out, leather boots break in, and your dating luck will turn around — I promise you this.
