The gay scene
Turning a guy down
If you’re not interested in a guy who’s obviously got you in his sights, it goes a long way to be polite when saying ‘No’.
OK, you may want tell the guy to stop bothering you, but imagine if the shoe was on the other foot: how would you feel? You should always aim to make a polite getaway. Speak firmly to make it clear that the conversation is over but – if you can – smile genuinely. This way no one is made to feel uncomfortable or embarrassed. We’ve all been there so don’t do it to others.
If he won’t go away and you’ve shown him every reasonable courtesy, then tell him to... [in your own words].
