3) Be grateful.
Of course you’re totally worth it, but start with a “thank you for asking me out.”
4) Never say “yes” if you mean “no.”
Sometimes with memories of “Good Girl Scout” badges ringing in our memories, our well-meaning, people-pleasing demons gets the best of us. A sympathy date won’t do anyone any favors. It’s better to be authentic. And when you say “no” please leave the pity out of your voice, young lady.
5) Keep it short, authentic and private.
Be kind, be genuine and keep it moving. You don’t need a Gettysburg Address to explain why you’re not interested. Also, don’t subject the person to public ridicule. That won’t make you any cooler.
Statistically, every no brings you closer to someone you’ll want to say yes to. So now that you know how to say no, here’s wishing you many happy rejections, rock star!
Do you think you know how to say no in a nicer way? Have you ever had to say no to a guy who liked you? Tell us all about it in the comments!
