Great Advice When You're On a Date

Most people know the basics of dating: be on time, be polite, open the door, etc. While my actions may be right out of the 1960’s, there is one simple tactic about dating that Emily Post didn’t even consider.

Sometimes more than a coat will do…

True Story… In 2010, Manatee County Florida -A Marine and his wife were attacked outside a movie theater Christmas night after asking a group of teens to be quiet during a movie, according to Manatee County Sheriff’s Office reports. The attack escalated into an affray attracting approximately 300 bystanders.As a result, four teens and an adult were placed under arrest, according to reports.

Federico Freire, 27, who is on leave from Afghanistan, went to the movies at the Carmike Royal Palm 20, 5125 26th St. E., to see “Little Fockers” with his wife, Kayln. Freire said a group of about 20 teens were being obnoxious and loud during the movie.

When they were asked to be quiet, some of teens began swearing. Kayln Freire went to find a manager and the youths were asked to leave.

The couple left shortly after.

“We were just so aggravated. We thought, ‘Forget this, we’re out of here,’ ” Federico Freire told the Herald. Theater management asked more of the teens to leave and when they refused, deputies were called. As the couple exited the theater just before 10 p.m., Kayln Freire was surrounded by about 15 girls who appeared like they were going to attack her, Federico Freire said.

Seven males then surrounded Federico Freire and began to kick and punch him, according to the sheriff’s office report; he was struck across the left side of his face. “I got back up to defend myself and they started running everywhere,” he said.

A crowd of about 100 people began to form.

When Freire looked to his wife, he said he saw a young male with his shirt off punch her in the face, knocking her out. Freire said he went after the youth and a good samaritan who brandished his gun, telling the crowd to step back.

Deputies arrived shortly thereafter.

“I’m fine. My wife’s face is all swollen up. She’s got cuts in the inside of her mouth. I was able to defend myself pretty good because of my training, but I was more worried about her,” Freire said.

The solution is simple. At the first sign of a potential problem, your date should run and call the police. If you’re with your family then your kids should do the same. In short, the most qualified person stays to deal with the threat, the other person escapes to safety.

You do not want to be in a situation where you’re distracted by the well being of your loved one or they are used as leverage against you.

Heck you don’t even have to “train” this, all you need to do is talk about it.

It’s real simple. Tell your date, “Look, in the unlikely event something happens and we encounter some trouble, I’m just going to tell you to leave. Don’t walk, run. Run as fast as you can until you get to a safe place and call the cops. No matter what happens, just run and yell “Call the police!!!”. It’s going to be the best thing for both of us because it will do two things. First it’s going to distract the bad guys long enough for me to do something. Second the clock is going to be ticking and the bad guys will probably just leave and not risk a police intervention.”

You don’t need to be an alarmist. In reality, you’ll probably look like Prince Charming compared to the last guy who didn’t even wait to see if she was safely in her home.

If You don’t want to be Prince Charming, a “little charming” wouldn’t hurt…

To be a knight in shining armor to your date, get your free trial of the most devastating self defense system on the planet:
