Don’t be a dick

When it’s time to turn down a guy online, what are the best ways of doing so without offending him?

In the ideal dating app interaction you both hit it off before embarking on an intimate evening of fun. But sometimes it’s just not a match. Or after chatting a while you decide it’s just not going to work. That’s where things can get sticky because rejection isn’t easy for anyone.

Building Healthy Online Communities (BHOC) has partnered with dating app users just like you to find out how they’ve remained Nice AF when rejecting someone, or their own stories about getting rejected themselves. We asked the men you see in the videos below to tell their stories about how they’ve remained NiceAF when receiving or giving rejection.
