Have you ever wished there was a way out of a bad date? 

Well now there's an app for that and an escape is just three clicks away. The Dorothy App is the new, wearable technology that helps you get out of bad dates. 

According to Newsweek, the app syncs your smartphone to the Ruby - the small, Bluetooth-enabled device that attaches to your shoe. 

With just three clicks, the app triggers a call or text to your cell phone from a fake contact.  It also can text your location to up to three friends so they can help you. 

The app's creators say they were inspired by "The Wizard of Oz," because when you're stuck on a bad date, there's no place like home. 

No word on when the app will be on the market. Right now the creators are still exploring how to perfect the product.
