How to let a girl down easy

Everybody deals with rejection in their life. There’s no escaping from it because you can’t like everyone and not everyone can like you. It’s just a part of life. Most of us know what it feels like being rejected. In most countries, the guy is the one doing the asking out and the girls are the one rejecting.

But if you’re a guy that has to reject a girl, do it the right way by following these tips;

Be Respectful

It’s not okay to assume things about the girl. You cannot just assume that she’s madly in love with you if she’s never said that. So, you are only allowed to really say things about things that you know for sure. Making assumptions about the way the girl feels and then having an opinion on that is a douchey behavior. You don’t know her and you don’t know what she’s thinking. When you’re going to turn down a girl or tell her that you’re not interested, do this respectfully.

Appreciate Her

Appreciate her offer and show how flattered you are. This way, you will respect her and her feelings. Also, be honest enough to talk about it out with her and tell her that you do not feel the same for her. However, do not be too honest and point out on her flaws. Don’t give future hopes. If you say that you will think about it in sometime near future, then it will give her hope. After saying NO politely to a girl, make sure that you appreciate her again.

Don’t Pretend Like It’s Her Loss

The most important thing that we worry about when it comes to rejecting people is that we don’t want to hurt them. But that’s not actually what you’re afraid of. You’re not afraid of that person being hurt, you’re afraid of being the person to hurt them. You don’t have to go through the feeling of guilt of hurting them. It’s really not about them, it’s about you and your feelings. So, get that out of your head. If you really don’t like the person, they deserve to get told about it straight up, but then again, do it repectfully. Don’t try to pretend that you’re above her because she’s not going to keep running after you.


Remember, you should only turn a girl down if she’s asking you if you want to be in a relationship or if she’s really hinting towards it. Don’t be a jerk.
