So I went on a first date last night. I met the guy on Match.com and had hopes that we would connect. But there was no connection! No chemistry. No tickling of my pepa. Nada. Minutes in and I was hatching up an escape plan.
But he didn’t get it. He still talked about our next date and how “his focus was on me.” If there were an alarm I would have pulled it and screamed, “Mayday! Mayday!” Alas, I had to stick it through. Cause he was my ride. And I didn’t want to hurt my chauffeur’s feelings.
I did try everything (and I mean everything) to get him to understand this simple statement: I’m just not that into you. Here are five ways to show him you’re not interested when on a first date. Hopefully it works better for you!
Tell Him The Truth
If he's still giving you googly eyes, it's time for honesty. The truth may hurt but it's better than dodging calls and pretending you're busy all the time when he asks you out on a second date. I am about to burst my date's bubble soon. He text me the following day of our date. He is definitely still interested. Brutal truth coming up next. Sorry dude! Photo Credit: Flickr Creative Commons.
