One thing that amazes me is what some people do even though they are not interested in dating someone.
I mean the logical thing to do for a person who is not really interested in dating someone would be to simply say “NO” and just continue with his or her life.
But I realise that this is not the case with so many people today.
Why will a person act like they are interested in a relationship when clearly they are not?
For those of you wondering if this happens, this article will show you some of those things that should not be done if you are not interested in dating someone.
Don’t act like you are interested:
This is one thing that some people do. If you do not like the other person, what is the point in pretending to like that person?
Simply don’t give in to that relationship or even start it if you are not interested in dating someone.
Some people give the other person “green light” making them feel like you are into them which should not be so.
Just don’t act like you are interested when you are not.
Don’t encourage the other person:
If you are not interested in dating someone, do not do things to encourage the other person.
Things like constantly visiting him or her, calling all the time, buying gifts frequently should be avoided.
This is because indulging in these things will make the other person think you are both on the same page.
If you think you don’t want to let the person down easily and do all these, you’ll only be causing such a person more harm.
Don’t stall your refusal:
Most people do this. Just because they do not want to hurt the feelings of the other person, they prolong turning down the dating invitation.
Whether you stall or not, you’ll still end up hurting the other person so why not do it at once?
Stalling will make the other person have more feelings for you and also make it hard letting you go.
Don’t pretend to be who you are not:
There’s no way you can be yourself when you are not interested in dating someone.
Just because you are trying to be nice to the other person, you end up pretending to be whom the other person will love.
Why put yourself through so much emotional trauma?
Don’t settle for less:
I know a couple of ladies who go into relationships even though they are not interested in dating someone.
When I asked one of them why she said she didn’t want to be alone. So rather than saying “NO,” she accepted the relationship.
So she’s not really happy but for the sake of not being looked at at being “single,” she decides to be in a relationship with someone she’s not interested in.
The bottom line is who is she deceiving? No one else but herself.
Why settle for less when you can get someone better?
Dont make people think you are:
If you are not interested in dating someone, don’t make other people around you think you are.
Aside making you look like a hypocrite, this can equally reduce your chances of actually meeting someone you might like.
People are moved by what they see and if they keep seeing you with that person, they’ll draw conclusions and assumptions.
People do things for so many reasons and there might be reasons why you are acting this way.
Whatever they are, the points in this article are some important things you should not do if you are not interested in dating someone.
Because you not only hurt yourself but also the other person.
How many of you are guilty of any of them?
