Hope you are crushing your New Year’s resolutions!
I often get asked by my single friends how to tell a man you are not interested. My response is always the same, “do it in person, not a text. ” Sending a text is like writing it on a post-it note and leaving it on their kitchen counter.
A man’s ego is fragile, so it’s good to remember the golden rule—treat others the way you’d like to be treated. It’s not nice to leave a person hanging because you’re afraid to say you’re not interested.
Follow these simple ways to tell a man you are not interested:
Honesty is the best policy, but if you don’t have any chemistry with the person, or if you are repelled by them in any way the ex-boyfriend reason is always a good one.
Yes, this sounds very hippy, dippy esoteric, and spiritual, but nothing feels better than being free of someone you don’t want to be with long term.
This is short and simple. No added flair is needed after you say it.
The most direct way of letting a guy go
I was told once by my therapist that you can lie for love. This is a lie because you love yourself.
This is a big one if you want to be married and have children.
Another thing to keep in mind is compassion. This man is putting himself out there and being vulnerable, and that‘s a courageous thing to do.
Be honest. Be kind. You may be surprised how much people appreciate it, and how better you feel.
