17 Lines That Are Sure To Get You Out Of Having A Drink With That Guy Who Won’t Leave You Alone

Do everything in your power to freak the guy out.

How to Lose A Guy in 10 Days

Don't we all wish that we could just say "No" and be left alone? No is no and it's time for society to suck it up and accept it.

You should just be able to say, "You're making me uncomfortable, please leave me alone," but sometimes they just don't get the hint.

That's why you have to be ready to stand up for yourself. Imagine you're Andie Anderson from "How To Lose A Boyfriend In 10 Days" and do everything in your power to freak the guy out.

Never take them seriously, once guys (or girls!) are rejected, the defense mechanism kicks in and they say start spewing rude comments. They go from "You're gorgeous" to "I never thought you were that pretty any way" in a blink of an eye. They are boosting their meaningless ego, just ignore it.

Instead, here are some lines that can help you slip away.

"I have a girlfriend and, no, we aren't interested in a threesome"

I mean, my best friend and I are practically dating.

"When were you born? Ohhh, you're a *insert Zodiac sign* I only talk to *opposing Zodiac sign*"

We're not compatible and the negativity in the air is palpable. It's ruining my aura.

"OMG my best friend is crying in the bathroom, I have to go to her"

Just dash away before he can ask for your number.

"​Sorry, but I deserve better"

Okay, this isn't the kindest one, but if a guy won't leave you alone, just give a good stab to his ego.

"I have a boyfriend whose in my league, unlike you"

Hair flip. Body roll. Bye.

"That reminds me of my boyfriend!"

Mention your boyfriend, but beware, this doesn't always push a guy away. Last week, a guy reached out to me and once I told him I have a boyfriend, he said, "I'm cool with it if you are." WTF.

"Sorry, I have diarrhea and gotta go"

It's that simple.

"The horse is in the barn. I repeat the horse is in the barn"

Be weird, say odd things, shock him, and just get out of the situation. From there, go to the bouncer to take care of it.

"I got to go take a shit"

It's going to take me a while.

 Just scream in his face

This has got to be my favorite one.

 "You should meet my family"

"Meet The Parents" part four?

 "My ex said that, too! He was amazing and so smart. His family loved me"

A girl who constantly talks about an ex to strangers will nudge a guy to the opposite side of the bar.

 "I have a wedding ring picked out on Pinterest, let me show it to you, so you know what I want"

I hear wedding bells.

 "My friend would really like you. One second, I'll bring her over"

Get his hopes up and charge the other way.

 "I'm on a sex cleanse. It's kind of like a juice cleanse, but, yeah, just getting rid of toxicity"

If you really want to punch it in, end the line with, "Kind of like you."

 "Come back to me when you have a Rolex"

Eye on the prize, ladies. Eye on the prize.

 "No"

Stay strong, firm, and confident. You've got this!

Don't be shy, go to a bouncer and they will escort him out. You should not leave the party because someone else made you uncomfortable, they need to go.

Is God Reckless?

Exploring the controversy behind the popular worship song "Reckless Love"

120
Is God Reckless?


First things first I do not agree with people getting so caught up in the specific theology of a song that they forget who they are singing the song to. I normally don't pay attention to negative things that people say about worship music, but the things that people were saying caught my attention. For example, that the song was not biblical and should not be sung in churches. Worship was created to glorify God, and not to argue over what kind of theology the artist used to write the song. I was not made aware of the controversy surrounding the popular song "Reckless Love" by Cory Asbury until about a week ago, but now that I am aware this is what I have concluded.The controversy surrounding the song is how the term reckless is used to describe God's love. This is the statement that Cory Asbury released after many people questioned his theology regarding his lyrics. I think that by trying to clarify what the song was saying he added to the confusion behind the controversy.This is what he had to say,
"Many have asked me for clarity on the phrase, "reckless love". Many have wondered why I'd use a "negative" word to describe God. I've taken some time to write out my thoughts here. I hope it brings answers to your questions. But more than that, I hope it brings you into an encounter with the wildness of His love.When I use the phrase, "the reckless love of God", I'm not saying that God Himself is reckless. I am, however, saying that the way He loves, is in many regards, quite so. What I mean is this: He is utterly unconcerned with the consequences of His actions with regards to His own safety, comfort, and well-being. His love isn't crafty or slick. It's not cunning or shrewd. In fact, all things considered, it's quite childlike, and might I even suggest, sometimes downright ridiculous. His love bankrupted heaven for you. His love doesn't consider Himself first. His love isn't selfish or self-serving. He doesn't wonder what He'll gain or lose by putting Himself out there. He simply gives Himself away on the off-chance that one of us might look back at Him and offer ourselves in return.His love leaves the ninety-nine to find the one every time."
Some people are arguing that song is biblical because it makes reference to the scripture from Matthew 28:12-14 and Luke 15. Both of these scriptures talk about the parable of the lost sheep and the shepherd. The shepherd symbolizes God and the lost sheep are people that do not have a relationship with God. On the other hand some people are arguing that using the term reckless, referring to God's character is heretical and not biblical. I found two articles that discuss the controversy about the song.The first article is called, "Reckless Love" By Cory Asbury - "Song Meaning, Review, and Worship Leading Tips." The writer of the article, Jake Gosselin argues that people are "Making a mountain out of a molehill" and that the argument is foolish. The second article, "God's Love is not Reckless, Contrary to What You Might Sing" by author Andrew Gabriel argues that using the term reckless is irresponsible and that you cannot separate Gods character traits from God himself. For example, saying that God's love is reckless could also be argued that God himself is reckless. Reckless is typically not a word that someone would use to describe God and his love for us. The term reckless is defined as (of a person or their actions) without thinking or caring about the consequences of an action. However, Cory Asbury is not talking about a person, he is talking about God's passionate and relentless pursuit of the lost. While I would not have chosen the word reckless, I understand what he was trying to communicate through the song. Down below I have linked two articles that might be helpful if you are interested in reading more about the controversy.
