Virtual Breakups: 50 Ways to Delete Your Lover

  • Tell the truth.
  • “Let’s just be friends.”
  • “Thank you for your note. I am not available at present. Hope you find your real mate soon.”
  • “I’m already writing too many people, but thank you.”
  • “I’m not interested, thank you.”
  • “You’re not my type.”
  • “Sorry, I realized that I am not over my last partner yet. I am not ready for a new relationship.”
  • “I don’t think a relationship with you would meet my most important needs.”
  • “I’m not really interested in pursuing this, but it was nice to meet you.”
  • “It was very nice to meet you, but I don’t feel any chemistry between us. I hope you find someone that you connect with.”
  • “It was nice to meet you, but it’s not a good fit for me. Best of luck in your search.”
  • “Sorry, I’m going to be really busy for awhile.”
  • “I believe you are a very nice person, but I don’t think we would connect face-to-face. I wish you luck!”
  • Compliment them but then explain, “I have gotten back into a relationship with someone I met before you--sorry.”
  • “Thank you for your interest, I am flattered by the compliment. However, I am interested in someone else at this time. I wish you all the luck in finding someone who is compatible with you.”
  • “Thank you for writing. I’m seeing several people right now and do not have time for more.”
