32 Things You Can Say To Guys That Ask For Your Number Instead Of 'No'

If you've been with me and my articles for a while, then I'm sure you've noticed a trend of calling out creepy guys for what they are—creepy. No, I'm not a man-hater. I just don't take well to guys I'm not interested in or don't know coming up to me to ask for my number. Am I too mean at times? Probably, but I prefer to think of it as being direct. I'll flat out tell a guy no, usually. But some days, I'm feeling more creative than that.

Here are a few ways you can tell a guy no when he asks for your number:

"I'm 15."

Just eat a lemon. Look them in the eyes and eat a freakin' lemon.

Proven by my friend Alex to ward off the unwanted.

Shout "stranger danger!" at the top of your lungs.

"I'm deaf."

Shout it at him so he really gets the idea.

"No hablo Ingles."

"I don't ethically support men asking women for their numbers. Or dating. Or men."

"What's your zodiac sign? I need to make sure we're compatible first."

"I have HPV."

Or any other STD will do.

"The judge says I can't have my phone until the charges are dropped against me for reckless endangerment of others."

 "Oh my god, YES! I need a new gay best friend! You're gay, right?"

 "I'm saving myself for Chris Evans."

 "Mercury is in retrograde and I just can't make any big decisions right now."

 "Sorry, my mom said I can't."

 "I'm wearing a chastity belt that only my parents and God have the key to."

 "I'm on the run from the police for suspected murder of my ex."

 "My horoscope advised me against doing anything reckless."

 "I'm actually in an arranged marriage with my cousin. We like to keep it in the family."

Kill that mood, real quick.

 "I'm in love with you."

 Laugh uncontrollably until they walk away.

 Or cry uncontrollably. Dealer's choice.

 "You'll have to ask my dad's permission first."

 "Sorry, my cat just died, so I'm too fragile."

 "Yeah, I would, but I have to go shampoo my dog. Like, right now."

 "Yeah, can you text me around 3 o'clock and remind me to take my meds? My schizophrenia really acts up if I don't remember to take them."

 Hiss at him, like a cat.

 "It's not me, it's you."

Nothing like a premature breakup to reject him.

 "No, I can give you my boyfriend/girlfriend's number instead, though."

 "Oh, I think someone's calling me from the other side of the bar, byeeeee."

 "Gosh darnit, I JUST joined a convent and had to give up my worldly possessions today, sorry."

 "Sorry, I'm still traumatized from my parents' messy divorce when I was 10."


This goes against what the headline says, but I'm a firm believer that a simple "no" is effective and will send the guy packing.

Happy rejecting, and stay safe, ladies!

6 Things Owning A Cat Has Taught Me

This one's for you, Spock.

6 Things Owning A Cat Has Taught Me
Liz Abere

Owning a pet can get difficult and expensive. Sometimes, their vet bills cost hundreds of dollars just for one visit. On top of that, pets also need food, a wee wee pad for a dog, a litter box with litter for a cat, toys, and treats. Besides having to spend hundreds of dollars on them, they provide a great companion and are almost always there when you need to talk to someone. For the past six years, I have been the proud owner of my purebred Bengal cat named Spock. Although he's only seven years and four months old, he's taught me so much. Here's a few of the things that he has taught me.

You're Your Own Best Friend

Kinder Self - Eyes

It's fun to see all of the selfies on social media, they are everywhere. I see pictures with pouty lips, duck lips and pucker lips. I see smokey eyes, huge fake lashes and nicely done nose jobs, boob jobs and butt lifts. Women working out in spandex, tiny tops and flip flops. I see tight abs and firm butts, manicured nails and toes, up dos and flowing hair. "Wow", I think to myself," I could apply tons of make-up, spend an hour on my hair, pose all day and not look like that. Maybe I need a longer stick!"

Ancient Roman Kings: 7 Leaders of Early Rome

The names and dates of the reigns of the first four kings, as well as the alternation of Sabin and Latin names, are more legendary than historical. The last three kings, of Etruscan origin, have an existence which seems less uncertain.

It is evident that all this is only a legend although archeology shows us little by little that these kings if they did not exist as the ancient history, describes them, have at least in the very Outlines were real as chief of a shepherd’s tribe. The period when kings ruled Rome could estimate at 245 years.
