The easy way to decline is just not respond, right?
But I found that there were some people who were persistent and wouldn’t get the hint that after a week of not responding (and obviously being online) that I wasn’t interested. Politely declining is probably the most asked about topic I have been asked.
At the end of any of these statements you can throw in a “Good luck out there,” “Best of luck dating,” or “I know you’ll find someone great!
In the first few casual dates, prior to any discussion of exclusivity or commitment, both men and women are guilty of blowing off a romantic interest.
Do you really owe someone a let down response if you’re only in the “getting to know you” stage?
So for most people they can’t keep track of who sent them a flirt or message back and who didn’t.
So if you’re not interested, it’s easy to slip under the radar.
