Last summer, I resisted the urge to ghost a guy I'd gone on a couple dates with and instead I sent him a soft rejection text.
Even though he never texted me back (the irony), I'm happy I was the bigger person. So rather than pulling a disappearing act on a guy or girl you're just not that into, Elite Daily suggests sending a short rejection text instead:
- Hey! I had a great time on our last date, but the chemistry isn't there for me. I know you'll meet someone amazing!
- I kinda got the impression you're looking for something serious, and I'm in casual-dating mode. I don't want to waste your time! I hope you find what you're looking for.
- Hi, I'm happy we had the chance to get to know each other last night, but I don't think we have much in common. I hope you understand!
Sure, it'll be a little awkward, but it's better than leaving your date wondering 'what went wrong?'
