When you come close to dating a person but for whatever reason it falls through, and then later find out that person is batshit crazy, you've dodged a bullet.
I heard Kara nailed Oliver's pet snake to his door after she found a text from another girl on his phone. Guess I dodged a bullet there.

When you invite a girl swimming at your family house over the weekend but realize from her Twitter during the week that she is batshit crazy and you haven't yet sent her the address, you've dodged a bullet.

When you used to think someone was attractive years ago, but for some reason, things did not work out; and when you see them recently, you see that they are a total wreck.
Wow, I used to think she was hot, but man, she has 2 kids from 2 different baby daddies now and her body is a wreck. I might have dodged a bullet there.

The feeling after seeing that your bitchy ex-girlfriend has aged poorly, is obese or looks generally bad after some years.
Oh my God! have you seen Martha? she looks awful. What happened to her? I'm happy I dodged that bullet.

Something that your future self will thank you for. Also: having successfully avoided a sticky situation.
When offering me the job, Criss Angel cut my salary request in half. Then he told me that he was doing ME a favor because working with him meant working with a celebrity and his "Magic Kids". Bahahahahah! Saying no to that was like dodging a bullet!

"I almost ran over this squirrel in the street today, but I swerved and hit this sharp, jaggedy tree. So it's all good. I sure dodged that bullet, but missed and fell off the building."
