3. Imply that you have plenty of guy friends to choose from.
“I let him know that there’s no shortage of guys around me and I can pick and choose whom I want to see,” a tactful woman in her late 20s tells us. By suggesting that you don’t have to go far to find a boyfriend, you’ll hopefully discourage him from making any further advances towards you. If he asks you to include him in the pool, tell him that the eligibility is limited to unmarried men. “Gosh! You must be kidding, right?” Pretend to be knocked down by a feather.
