Today's dating scene is brutal.

Whether you meet people through dating apps, online, or in person, things are getting pretty serious.

We live in an age where some men react negatively to rejection, even when it's polite and respectful.2

Women and girls who turn down dates are, at best, told that they're fat and ugly anyway.

At worst, they are threatened with humiliation, rape, and death.

Not all men are like this, by any means – nobody thinks that all men behave that way – but I would wager that every woman has been insulted or threatened for turning down a date.

Especially on dating apps, if you ignore someone you're not interested in, you're abused.

This puts the focus on you and your feelings, in the hopes that the man you turn down won't get it twisted.

In some instances, ghosting is the only thing you can do.2

6. Tell Him You're Not Ready for a Relationship

Hopefully, this won't devolve into a request for a friends with benefits relationship.
