Well, all good things must come to an end. The good news is that most bad things come to an end as well. For every first date, there must come a last date. It’s true, just in some cases that last date is a divorce proceeding or something more final (that sentiment is a little darker than I intended). Sometimes you are luckier than that, and it becomes clear early on that things aren’t going to work out. In fact, plenty of first dates are last dates. But when that isn’t the case, there may be some damage control to take care of.
