It means you knew yourself well enough to recognize that the good energy, convos that flowed easily, and shared taste in music would be a perfect foundation for a platonic relationship — but not a romantic one. Good for you! Now the next step is figuring out how to tell someone you just want to be friends. When it comes to rejection texts to send if you want to be friends, you've got to strike the right balance. You'll want to be straight-up so there's no room for confusion and civil enough to leave the door open for friendship.
As dating coach Erika Ettin ly told Elite Daily, " The two keys are tact and honesty when letting someone down. While someone might be disappointed that you don't want to go out again, [they] can't really be angry at you for feeling, or not feeling, how you do. For starters, you can send the other person a text that simply touches on the fact that you'd rather just be friends. Make sure you can acknowledge you did have a good time and you'd like to have more good times with them in the future — but you want to do that as friends, not lovers.
By mentioning that the connection you felt wasn't romantic, you can strike up a convo about your platonic chemistry.
If you're not comfortable with a text so short, you can give them more context to why your date lacked chemistry though remember you don't actually owe them anything. However, you should tread carefully. As psychiatrist Dr. Susan Edelman ly told Elite Daily, "We all know rejection is part of the game, but self-esteem and confidence shouldn't take a hard hit when you turn someone down.
Lastly, you can take a sweet approach. Edelman ly told Elite Daily. You don't have to give the other person an explanation, and you absolutely don't have to make up a nice trait about the other person if you're not feeling it. That being said, if there is something you like about them that makes you still want to be their friend?
It wouldn't hurt to put that in your text. In a sense, including what you like about them can confirm for them that yes, you did hit it off — just platonically. It can also remind them that there's nothing wrong with them, but you two are just not romantically compatible.
The biggest thing to keep in mind when crafting this text is say what you'd want to hear if you were on the receiving end of it. Edelman said. Erika Ettindating coach. Susan Edelmanpsychiatrist.
