Do you clearly reject someone in a dating application with a reply message or just ignore it?
For each profile that says: “Please block or ignore if you are not interested”, you will meet another person who says: “I will always respond to all messages – I think it is not right not to do so”. It is a dilemma for which there is no right or wrong answer.
Besides the disinterest in the conversation, why don’t we reply? Sometimes because we don’t like to reject someone out of fear, we will make him feel bad; maybe we don’t know what words to use, and sometimes we think that no answer is an answer.
However, if you have difficulty finding the words, here are four simple lines that you can use by default.
1. He asked if you are interested in a meeting or if you can unlock more photos.
You can answer: “Thank you, but I don’t think you’re my type, so I’m going to decline respectfully. Enjoy the rest of the day.”
Good manners cost nothing and thanking someone who has complimented you is …. that, good manners. Just as wishing them the best is.
2. Keep sending messages but never asks you to meet him.
You can answer: “Hey, I always like to chat online, if that’s what you’re looking for, but I don’t think you’re my type and I thought it would be better to say it, since I don’t want to waste your time if you’re looking for more. I hope it looks good to you. “.
People who send endless ‘Hey’ and ‘How are you’ messages tend to want to ask something else but may be shy when it comes to the point. Help them get to the point. Life is short.
3. But what if you don’t want to chat online with that person either?
You can reply: “Thanks for the message. I’m just here to chat with guys in order to meet them, and I don’t think you’re what I’m looking for, without offending. I wish you the best in your search.”
You don’t owe anyone your time and there is no shame or shame in not wanting to talk to someone.
4. Finally, be brief and simple
“Thank you for your message, I am flattered but I am not interested / willing to meet you. Take care.”
Resist the reasons why you are not interested in someone, as it may seem that you are criticizing him. You are not interested, so leave it that way.
This can be difficult if you have detailed a preference in your profile for a certain type of person and they fall into that category. However, at the end of the day, if you like redheaded bears and are redheaded bears, that doesn’t automatically mean you want to date them.
The more we can do to make online environments a more friendly, better space, and an educated message of the ‘thank you, but not thanks’ type contributes in some way to that.
I could have had the courage to have written to the person who sent me the message, so accept the compliment. They find you attractive, that’s something nice to hear. Even if you don’t like them, nothing happens to recognize and politely decline to take things further.
Rejecting other people can be difficult, especially if you tend to be a pleasure for people. Rejection may sting, but you are not responsible for how others react.
Be honest, be kind and keep in mind what kind of message you would like to receive if it was you who were rejected.
And remember, you don’t have to answer. However, you may want to warn people in advance in your profile that you do not respond to all messages.
Add a friendly warning on your profile that you respond very selectively thanks to your notorious male bad taste.
That way you can prepare the boys for the possibility that they don’t know anything about you. You don’t owe anyone an explanation of why you’re not interested. But using a more humorous variation of the subject. It’s not you, it’s me, you can help someone frame the rejection they may feel after being ignored.
