Need A Way Out Of An Awkward Date? Voodoo Ranger Is Here To Help (With A Beer, Too)

Dating in college can feel like walking through a minefield of terrible dates, and hookup war flashbacks, especially when you’re juggling new partners on top of your classes, friendships, and even personal growth. Recognizing early on what works and what doesn’t in a relationship can make a world of difference — and even with the best intentions, bad dates are inevitable. Maybe there are some red flags, or perhaps the chemistry just isn’t there. Whatever the case, knowing how to gracefully leave is key.

Let’s face it: from awkward dating app meetups to those relationship red flags we know all too well, dating just isn’t the same anymore. And if you feel like your date isn’t going as planned, even though you’re already in it, that’s perfectly OK. So, having an exit strategy out of an awkward date is more important than ever when it comes to modern dating. That’s where the Voodoo Ranger Bad Date Hotline comes in, your ultimate dating rescue. 

Whether you need a quick out from a cringe-worthy date or just want to escape to something better, the Voodoo Ranger Bad Date Hotline is here to help just by sending a text their way. Plus, if you’re 21+, you might even score a free brewski. College dating doesn’t have to be a nightmare — let Voodoo Ranger turn your bad date into a story worth laughing about with friends.
