Lets say someone asks you out and you don’t want to date this person. You turn them down, but instead of dropping the issue this person wants to know why you’re turning them down. The real reason is something that would be hurtful for this person to hear. What do you tell them?
Would you lie your way out of telling them? Would you tactfully explain the reasons why you don’t find them suitable? Or would you let them have it without any tact?
Lets say this person isn’t a persistent douchebag, but is someone who seems sincerely clueless about what they are doing wrong.
Sorry for the tortured gender pronouns.
