Have you ever met someone on a dating App and they’re good-looking, they seem nice but there’s just no chemistry? Unfortunately, they want to see you again, but you’re just not interested.
Let’s face it, you’re not going to want to have a relationship with every person that you meet online, but if you are very attractive, you may find you have more potential suitors than people you are into.
A friend of mine used to share her hideous dating stories where guys would be cheap, argumentative and downright jerks. I swear she went on over 50 bad dates and then one day, viola, she met the one. After three years of terrible dates, she was married and pregnant within a year in a half. In a sea of assholes, there are some really nice people out there, even if it doesn’tseem like it at the time.
Even though you may find someone a little horrifying as a potential romantic suitor, you probably don’t want to dump them in a mean way and make an enemy for life. You never know where you may run into someone again, at a job interview, spin class or your cousin’s wedding.
So before you go and break someone’s heart, it is probably best to break it off in a nice way when you turn them down.

How to deal with someone you don’t want to see him again
Life would be so much easier if we didn’t have to deal with the people we don’t ever want to see again. But then, life has a way of making things interesting for everybody.
At certain points, you’ll bump into your biggest frenemy at social functions and get a front-row view of their perfect visage.
What do you do then? Be still, grin and bear it?
You don’t have to. Here are some tips on how to deal with someone you don’t ever, ever want to see ever again.
1. Be honest
You don’t have to sit still and take whatever’s coming without a word nor do you have to pick a fight and make a scene. Just be honest and learn to communicate your feelings without stepping on someone’s toes.
In a calm voice and with respect, let the person know and understand that you don’t want to see them again. Sometimes, all that is needed is an honest open conversation to get the point across and eventually, end things on a positive note.
2. Be firm
Don’t leave room for negotiation or argument, be assertive and stand by your view.
By being firm, you’re letting the person know and understand that your decision is final. Just remember to express your point without being disrespectful, it helps when you want due regard for your feelings and wishes.
If the person continues to reach out to you, even after you’ve expressed your feelings clearly, you can take the next step of setting boundaries by limiting your interactions with them.
This is ideally necessary to protect your well-being. By doing so, you can build a safe space where you can improve your mood and safeguard your mental health.
4. Seek support
If it gets to a point where the situation is harming you with mental health issues, you can always seek the support of friends, family and a professional.
While most people are hesitant to contact a psychologist or a counselor, they can help you make sense of the distressing emotions you’re feeling. And understanding your condition can help you manage things in a healthier way.
Throughout this situation, it’s important to put your well-being first. This means, it’s okay to get some space and create boundaries with people who are affecting you in a negative way.
By being assertive on what is “okay” and what is not, you can prevent any further harm and maintain a healthy relationship with others.
