7 Silly Ways to Let Him down Easy ...

By Holly

We all want to feel wanted, but that doesn't mean it's any fun turning down a nice guy. If you want to break up with your boyfriend or turn down a guy that asked you out, there are plenty of weird things to do that'll assure that he never goes near you again. Hey, it's better to make him hate you than to let him pine after you, right? Here are a few ridiculous ways to let him down easy:

1 Psychic Says

Psychic Says Tell him that you can't date him, because your psychic told you that he's going to be a famous rockstar in the future. Since you don't want to risk having him leave you for one of his groupies, it's best that you two part ways as soon as possible. Instead of breaking his heart, the news should make him jump with joy. I mean, who wouldn't want to be a celebrity?

2 Twin Trouble

Twin Trouble Tell him that you have an evil twin that looks exactly like you. Since it's impossible to tell you two apart, you don't want to be in a relationship with him, because the twin might try to steal him away. Of course, this could easily backfire since most guys fantasize about being with two twins at once.

3 Massive Move

Massive Move This is an oldie, but a goodie. Tell him that you're moving to a land far, far away. You don't want to engage in a long distance relationship, because the place you're going to doesn't have phones or computers or any sort of electricity. That way, he can't blame you.

4 Glasses Are Gone

Glasses Are Gone Tell him that you've lost your glasses and aren't able to tell him apart from all the other guys in the world. Since you don't want to accidentally cheat on him, you think it's best that you two stay friends. You're just trying to save him from a world of pain, so he should appreciate it.

5 Dog Duties

Dog Duties Tell him that your puppy or kitty is going through a hard time. You don't want them to get jealous of your relationships with fellow humans, so you need to cut off contact with every person that you know. If he has a pet, he'll understand.

6 Totally Taken

Totally Taken Tell him you're already taken by a famous celebrity who has promised to treat you like a real princess by buying you a tiara and a castle. If that doesn't work, then tell him that you're busy dating yourself, because there's nobody else that can understand you.

7 Random Requirements

Random Requirements If all else fails, give him a list of ridiculous requirements that he'd need to fulfill as your boyfriend. Tell him that he needs to call you pretty every half hour and that he should buy you roses whenever you sneeze in front of him. If he doesn't run away after hearing that, then there's no hope for him anyway, so you should probably be the one running.

While these excuses will probably get you a slap in the face or a bad reputation, they're nicer than flat-out telling him that he's too big of a loser to be your boyfriend. I mean, you don't want to be rude to him, do you? Has a guy ever given you a ridiculous excuse for not wanting to date you?
