How-To: Kindly Reject A Guy

We’ve all been there, you’re out on your girls night dancing the night away and a random guy comes up behind you and begins to dance. He didn’t ask you, he doesn’t know your name and yet, you don’t want to be a rude belle. You hang out for the rest of the night and it seems harmless, until you give him your number and now he’s got the wrong idea. So, how do you get out of this one without crushing his ego?

It’s tough to tell someone you’re not interested. It doesn’t matter what the circumstances are, but there’s a good chance that you may have come across a guy that fancies you and wants to go out with you. If you like the guy, it’s all fun and dandy. But if you don’t, and he’s being persistent, then you’ve got a bit of an issue on your hands. There is no perfect way to turn down a guy, as each guy is different. But here’s a list of ways that would definitely help you get the point across.

  • Nothing but the truth

It’s simple! You can’t go wrong with being honest. This way, there are no lies to cover up or guilty feelings towards the situation. Kindly thank him for whatever compliments he throws your way and tell him you are not interested. Flash a smile and walk away. You don’t have to be rude, unless he’s being pushy. After all, you know how hard it is to work up the courage to talk to someone you find attractive. Give him a little bit of credit.

  • Just Friends

There it is, the dreaded words no one wants to hear when asking someone out. But, if you don’t want to turn the guy down because he’s actually pretty great then hang on to him…as a friend. Tell him you would love to hang out with him and invite him to meet your friends. Just because you don’t want a relationship doesn’t mean you should lose your chance to make a new friend. Who knows, you might even change your mind.

  • Be a Sensitive Belle

If a guy is very persistent, but still very kind, try to have a talk with him. Tell him that you’re getting upset and saddened by his persistence. Tell him you’re having a difficult time getting through the day because of his incessant proposals. When you show your sensitive side to a nice guy, there’s a good chance he’ll back away even if he still wants to ask you out repeatedly. If he is really interested in you he won’t want you to resent him

Sometimes being nice doesn’t always work out. If the guy is becoming clingy and won’t leave you alone it’s time to get serious. If none of the earlier ways on how to reject a guy fail to work, here are a few harsh ways that could definitely get the point across.

  • Avoid the guy

Now some guys may be nice, but their persistence can be really annoying. Avoid the guy, and make it obvious that you’re avoiding him. If he asks you about it, you can tell him that you tried everything else, but he’s just not getting the point.

  • Don’t speak to him alone

Guys like it when the girl they like has a conversation with them alone. It shows preferential treatment over other guys. So avoid giving away any signs that could be taken positively. If he tells you that he wants to hang out with you alone, don’t give him a chance. Tell him you’ll speak with him alone only when you’re convinced he’s not hitting on you!
