Rejection...take your pick

Top 10 Rejection Lines Given By Women
(and what they actually mean)
10. I think of you as a brother. (You remind me of that inbred banjo-playing geek in “Deliverance.”)
9. There’s a slight difference in our ages. (You are one jurassic geezer.)
8. I’m not attracted to you in ‘that’ way. (You are the ugliest dork I’ve ever laid eyes upon.)
7. My life is too complicated right now. (I don’t want you spending the whole night or else you may hear phone calls from all the other guys I’m seeing.)
6. I’ve got a boyfriend (who’s really my male cat and a half gallon of Ben and Jerry’s).
5. I don’t date men where I work. (Hey, bud, I wouldn’t even date you if you were in the same ’solar system’, much less the same building.)
4. It’s not you, it’s me. (It’s not me, it’s you.)
3. I’m concentrating on my career. (Even something as boring and unfulfilled as my job is better than dating you.)
2. I’m celibate. (I’ve sworn off only the men like you.)
…and the number 1 rejection line given by women (and what it actually means)
1. Let’s be friends. (I want you to stay around so I can tell you in excruciating detail about all the other men I meet. It’s that male perspective thing)

Hi Tempo,
These are great, and most are very true. LOL.

Pearl said...

True, too true.

I once told a man I couldn't date him because his nickname was "Gootch". I felt kinda bad about that when I sobered up...


Belle said...

Well, at least they are being polite!

How about this one: Your a good man but..... (Insert any lame excuse). Number one is right on the money and the most used by women its smacks of wanting your cake and eating it to :-).

Spiral said...

You're not really my type.

How would you interpret that?

You haven't ever been rejected, have you Tempo?????

Tempo said...

Hi Mags, Yep, and I've heard most of them over the years, some to me, some to mates of mine.
Hi Pearl...well it was still his fault for having such a lame nickname.
Hi Belle, personally I'd prefer the honest truth instead of the rubbish excuses we men get. (I'm sure it goes both ways)
Hi Windsmoke, Yes I agree with you and having heard that particular lie myself I can attest to the fact that the friendship would never be any good after that anyway...
Hi Spiral, 'Not my type'= Not anyone's type.
I've been dumped and rejected many times, we men kinda get used to it..even though it does still hurt.

Twisted Scottish Bastard said...

All true, but you've forgotten the extra line in number 1.

They also like to keep us about to fix shelves, faulty washing machines and open bottles their fragile little wrists can't handle.

Tempo said...

Ah.. TSB, I see you're an old hand at this rejection thing; and quite right you are, when a relationship gets to the point of you being an unpaid handyman it's time to leave.

River said...

I don't need a man, I have a TV, a DVD player, lots of books and my own screwdriver set. That's my excuse for staying home a lot.

Tempo said...

Hi River... I have a vacuum cleaner, washing machine and cooking stuff (think theyre called 'saucepans') but having all that stuff does not mean I would willingly forgo the pleasure of female company. (they just hate me..thats all)
