If you’ve ever been ghosted you know how awful it feels, so why would you go and do it to some other poor soul? Rejection texts can be uncomfortable but when the other option is to hurt some perfectly nice person by leaving them on read for all of eternity, texting them ‘thanks but no thanks’ seems like it’s a lot better doesn’t it? Here's some ways you can let your next match down nicely.
- Hi! Thanks for a fun night. I think you’re really awesome but I have to be honest, I didn’t feel the chemistry. No doubt you’re going to find someone amazing. Finally, a new twist on the classic ‘it’s not you, it’s me’ message. It’s the Doritos Locos Tacos of rejections.
- Hey, I respect you so I just want to be honest. I don’t think we're a match, but I want to wish you the best of luck out there in the dating world. Simple, straightforward, and not cutting and running with no warning. While it might not win you the style category, it will get you a ‘your not a terrible person’ participation trophy.
- Thanks again for a super fun night! But to be honest, I kind of feel like we're more of a friend match. It might be a little risky to try and turn someone who was romantically interested in you via an app into a platonic friend, but this text could put the feelers out on if they think it’s possible. Because who couldn’t use more friends right?
- Hi, just wanted to let you know I had a great time getting to know you and I think you're an awesome person. Which is why I want to be honest and let you know I’m not feeling that spark. Have you figured out the equation yet? It’s a greeting, plus a light compliment, plus a semi-hard rejection, minus any ghosting.
