Just Say No?

"How do you turn down a date without hurting the guy's feelings?"

The Candy eds share their date decline techniques. How about you, what's yours?

jennie.jpg I usually just tell him I've got pressing family matters and am not really ready to date. But how would I know? I've been off the list for 7 years na! Hehe. —Jennie, Beauty Editor
angel.jpg No matter what your excuse is, just be polite. Don't just brush him off because it would show that you're disregarding his feelings. If he insists, be firm without being rude. If you really would like to go out with him, then maybe you can suggest an alternate date when you will be free. :) Angel, Assistant Features Editor
marla.jpg I'd probably suggest that we go on a group date. That way, it's not just the two of us and I don't end up giving him false hopes. The "I'm busy" excuse usually works, too. Marla, Assistant Lifestyle Editor
macy.jpg My general rule in life is "be honest." If you don't like the guy, don't go out with him. (What's the point of leading him on to think that you're into him, too?) Or if you're scared you might hurt his feelings, maybe you can tell him that you can hang out with each other's barkada. :) —Macy, Web and Mobile Producer
roch.jpg I usually say I'm busy or I have to go somewhere else. But if I don't really like the guy, I tell him straight that maybe we could just go on a group date. :D —Roch, Web and Mobile Producer
