How to Say NO Without Hurting Someone Feelings

The best part about dating is the thrill and attention you receive from your significant other. But for the times you don’t feel it, it turns into a chaotic mess. You may not want to continue things and it is important, to be honest, and upfront about it! 

Why Is It So Hard To Say No?

Why are we all people pleasers? Why can’t we prioritize ourselves? Why do we feel stomped on? 

Maybe not everyone, but you sometimes get lonely if you isolate yourself and feel the need to interact every once in a while.

That’s perfectly normal since we’re all sociable creatures!

Fine-tuned by millennia of natural selection, we as a species have evolved with more or less a built-in desire to avoid conflict, keep the peace, and help out others… even if it comes at our own expense.

Helping out others with no immediate benefit (or even harm) to ourselves is known in the world of evolutionary biology as reciprocal altruism.

That’s when animals (including humans!) do things to temporarily lower their own evolutionary fitness while improving someone else’s, with the expectation that the favor will be returned at some point.

Reciprocal altruism is just one piece of a larger puzzle that seems to suggest that cooperation and social harmony, not competition, were the primary drivers for the advancement of our species.

Are there easier ways to let down somebody or just politely say no? Here are some ways we think are the best to reject somebody!

While dating, a person is available to see many people at the same time. It is not something that is considered cheating unless you have committed to the same person.

‘I have been seeing somebody else too, and I don’t think it is fair to either of you. I hope you understand.’
