How to answer when someone says they don’t like you

How to respond if someone says they don't like you

In life, you can’t be expected to like everyone, but nobody has the right to come up and let you know that they don’t like you in an abusive way. Someone who does that is a verbal bully, bullies usually don’t expect their target to respond, they purposely pick people who they think are an easy mark for their abuse.

If you are being bullied at school or work, you need to tell a trusted confidante who can help you with the situation.

If you want to let the bully know that you are not going to put up with their abuse, we have some snappy comebacks that will hopefully render the rude individual speechless!

If you can think of an even better comeback, leave a comment, and let us know.

Megan Fox had mean girls who didn’t like her in high school

Megan Fox wasn’t part of the in crowd in high school and had to put up with mean girls.

There were some evil girls in my school and I went to Christian high school. I was 15 and everybody knew that my aspiration in life was to become an actress. One girl came to school on Halloween in a black leather catsuit and everyone thought she was  Catwoman. She answered, ‘No I am Megan Fox.’ She was making fun of me. I didn’t say anything to her. I was really shy.

Fox ended up making different kinds of friends instead. The actress continued, “I’ve always gotten along better with boys. That rubbed some people the wrong way. I was not, ever for a second, popular. Everyone hated me, and I was a total outcast, my friends were always guys, I have a very aggressive personality, and girls didn’t like me for that. I’ve had only one great girlfriend my whole life. -Megan Fox.

    1. oh that’s a bad one, that pretty much shows you are desperate to just find something to say back, they could totally say something back that will leave you speechless.

    2. 1.who askt for your opinion ?
      2.i never even liked you
      3. My life suck’s because your in it
      4.if I had your face I’d sue my parent’s

  1. A good comeback for I don’t like you is “Well I don’t like you either” or “I don’t like your attitude”.

  2. Comebacks
    -I don’t hate you, it’s just that if you got hit by a bus, I would be driving it.
    -Wow. Because I care sooooo much what you think.
    -Oh you hate me? Good, I don’t wake up everyday to impress you.
    -You don’t like me? Join the club, there are weekly meetings at the corner of, f**k you street & kiss my a** avenue.

  3. That’s funny becoz I don’t like you either! Or Nobody asked for your opinion so I don’t understand why you’ve opened your mouth! Or Stop talking Gibberish I only speak English!!!

  4. Comment No. 1; I could have no hands and you still would be able to count how many f*cks I give.
    Comment No. 2; I looked everywhere; in my files, the library, social media, even in the trainwreck you call a life but I simply couldn’t find where I asked for your opinion. (Two roasts in one!)
    Comment No. 3; Tell me something I’ll actually give 2 sh*ts about.

    I have used all of these and obliterated the people who I used them on.
