My mom has started dating again. She has had two dates with a guy and wants to say thank you but no thank you. What should she say? I know not to list anything "wrong" with him. Any handy catchphrases?

Thanks!

"Thank you for the opportunity to get to know you. However, I do not feel we are a match and it would be best to move on. I wish you the best of luck in your search. Regards....."


Short, sweet and to the point.


I'm sorry if you don't like my Honesty, but to be fair I don't like your lies.

Sometimes it's better to push someone away...not because you stopped loving them but because you can't take the pain anymore.

I generally say,

"I appreciate you asking me out, but I'm not interested in taking this any further. Good luck in your search."

or

"Thanks for texting me, sorry I didn't get back to you sooner. I've enjoyed getting to know you, but I'm just not "feeling this". I wish you good luck in finding someone special".

^^^or some variance of "Thanks, but no thanks"
