“Can I have your number?”
“Why not?”
“Because I don't want to give it to you”
“Here, take my number, then."
“No, I don't want it. I am not going to call you."
When I used to reject a stranger, I used to give them a billion excuses as to why I am rejecting them. Most of them were lies -- like, I have a boyfriend. Actually, that was the only excuse I’d give. Because I realized that me saying, “I am not interested.” Was translated to, “if you persuade and annoy the shit out of me enough, I might just give you my number.” And that’s totally not it.
And of course there were those who were like...
What I don’t understand is why anyone would want to convince or persuade another person to give their number. Why would you want someone who needs to be annoyed to death to say "yes" to a date or to give their number away.
I have taken the honesty is the best policy approach. I say no. Over and over again. Because even though I might be single, that doesn’t automatically make me interested, or even available (imagine that!)

Do you give the honest approach?

Or do you give a million excuses?

What has worked for you?

Alright, here's an oldie but a goodie. Have a great day!
