Great Rejection Lines to Use on Annoying Guys

Alright Ladies, listen up.

No matter how hard you try, it invariably happens. You’re out with your friends, you’re meeting some nice people along the way, and then you run into one dude who you just can’t seem to get away from. You try to be polite, you try to be a bit more firm, but no matter what you do it’s like he doesn’t get the clues, continually trying to engage in a conversation with you even though you’ve done everything except tell him to F-off.

Now, of course, there are easy ways to handle this. You could sick your aggressive, drunk girlfriend on him; she always likes a good fight. (But that could land you all in bigger trouble — like jail for the evening.) You could turn into the kind of bitchy girl you’ve always hated, and who you now suddenly understand and envy a little bit. (But that could come back and bite you in the ass, especially with the way social media works these days.)

So what can you do that will get rid of the guy and be fun along the way? If you’re going to be stuck with him for a little while, and he’s clearly not picking up the clue phone to take the message that you’re not interested, why not use some clever lines that you and your friends can joke about for the rest of the night? We sent out a Twitter note asking people to send us their suggestions, and the list above features the best of what we got.
