Snappy Retorts To Shitty Rejections

95% of the time when a girl spurns your advances she will do it in the mildest possible way, to spare feelings and to avoid angering a potentially unstable man (hopefully you, tiger!). But once in a while a really nasty bitch will let slip the shroud of politeness, revealing the scalding acid of true cuntiness underneath, and shoot you down harshly. When this happens, it is important to have a canned retort ready to fire back, or to rely on your innate wits if you have them, and completely shatter her expectation of your reaction.

Doing so affords you the opportunity to walk away with your dignity intact while getting in a dig at her expense and making her look the fool, or even better to reverse her shitty attitude 180 degrees into attraction for you.

Here are some excellent retorts you can toss out in response to commonly used bitchy rejections. Note: These are actual approach rejections that I have either experienced myself over the years or overheard being used on my wingmen.

  • “Ugh, Im not interested.”

“So you’re not going to buy me a drink?”

“So you’re not going to move out of the way so I can talk to that girl over there/get a drink/say hi to your friend?”

“So you don’t want to be on Girls Gone Wild?”

  • “Really, that’s the best you can do?”

“For now.”

“For you, nothing but my second best.”

  • “Go away.”

“Actually, I came over here to tell you that guy over there [point to ugliest/fattest guy in the room] thinks you’re cute.”

“Whoa, I was gonna see if you were interested in my lesbian friend.” [This works surprisingly well because she’ll wonder why you thought she was gay.]

“Does this mean the wedding’s off? That’s too bad. I’ve been dreaming about my wedding day since I was two.”

  • “That’s the worst pickup line I’ve ever heard.”

“And like a bad but catchy tune, you’ll remember it for days and hate yourself for it.”

“Oh believe me, there’s a lot worse where that came from. Consider yourself lucky.”

  • “Take a picture, it’ll last longer.”

“I would but you broke the lens.” [Be careful with this one. Best to deliver it way over the top like a teasing child.]

  • “Whatever you’re going to say, it won’t work.”

“So there’s no chance you’ll do my laundry?”

“Actually, it already has.” [Walk away.]

“Who brought their little sister to the bar?”

  • “I don’t want to be bothered.”

“The library’s down the street.”

  • “I’m out of your league.”

“Not with those shoes you’re not.”

“The league of brattiness? Yes.”

  • “I’m busy with my friends.”

“Plotting to get into my pants? I just look easy.”

Like a good boy scout, always be prepared.

  4. Most of these make the guy look like an insecure dork, for an obvious reason:

    Doing so affords you the opportunity to walk away with your dignity intact while getting in a dig at her expense and making her look the fool

    That’s *your* feelings. Because it makes *you* feel better, it automatically reveals that rejection affected you: you would have no use for the validation of a snappy comeback otherwise. To borrow your own categories, a witty response to rejection is beta – the wittier, the worse.

    On the other hand, Patrick above has it right: with compliments it’s the opposite. Your response to a compliment reveals your social rank vis-à-vis the complimenter: if it’s lower, you’ll be very pleased and surprised to receive praise and you’re likely to show it; if it’s higher, it’s just what you’d expect and you’ll shrug it off with a witty retort.

  5. jaakkeli,

    admitting that it sucks to be rejected does not make you beta. it makes you honest. you can pump yourself up with all sorts of ‘i don’t car what anybody thinks of me’ bullshit, but the only people who really don’t care what people think of them are sociopaths.

    it’s not the feelings you have, it’s what you do with those feelings. does being rejected make you shrivel up, either literally or figuratively, or does it embolden you even more? i think that’s what roissy is getting at.

    On some occasions, rejections are merely quick tests of the initiator’s mettle. To have no response at all is beta. And few of us can think fast enough to come up with something good on the spot. That’s why having some retorts ready to go is useful.

  7. “I’m out of your league.”

    “Not with those shoes you’re not.”

    This is my favorite and probably the most effective of all of them on so many levels. The hair comment would definitely work too! the possibilities are endless.

    I bet if you walked away after saying this, an hour later you’d feel a tap on your shoulder, turn around, and find an indignant girl who would start her sentence off with, “YOU KNOW WHAT? blahblahblah…” brilliant.

    being playfully critical of a girl’s style or fashion sense can work in so many situations, and it’s golden, especially if you know a little about womens fashion. even just a little. going shopping with girls, while unpleasant, can have major payouts in the future.

  8. A guy I used to know, Tommy, was in a bar with me and a few of my buddies. He was extremely shy with women and quite insecure. In the spirit of wanting him to overcome his greatest fear — cold-approaching a hot woman way out of his league — we encouraged him to go up to this girl.

    Imagine his petrification and the shriveled remnants of his ego when she looked him up and down, and nearly burst out laughing as she said this to him, while the music stopped dead and everyone looked at them:

    Oh my God, you little geek.
    Get away before I freak.

    I’m a babe and you are not
    You can’t handle what I’ve got.

    Why would I go out with you?
    You’re not fit to lick my shoe.

    So ha ha ha, don’t make me laugh
    I want a whole man, not a half!

    But something always told me I’ve been reading Tommy wrong. Smashed as he was with this devastating rebuff, he quickly regained his composure, and asked just as loudly:

    “So I guess a quick b.j. in the parking lot is out of the question?”

  9. It seems like a lot of effort to memorize a bunch of responses to specific situations. Better to go with a standard retort for all that hits her where it hurts the most: Her weight. Heavier girls will know it’s true, and thin girls will worry it is.

    Of course, that’s if you’re vindictive. If you’re just out having fun, try going for a high five when you get rejected. It doesn’t do shit in terms of attraction, but it is amusing.

Instead, you usually see guys digging themselves deeper, throwing something like the second line when it’s obvious that they were genuinely approaching.

    the way i see it, when a chick reveals her inner cunt to you with a harsh rejection you have one of three options:

    1. say nothing or say “have a nice day” and walk away.

    this is fine for not making yourself look worse but it won’t gain you anything. sometimes walking away in silence after getting verbally shredded often looks more beta than saying something.

    2. lash out.

    bad move. if you curse or act indignant, she’ll know she got to you.

    3. be clever/teasing.

    busting on her in a condescending fashion at least offers you the chance to turn around the dynamic. you may surprise her so much that she might start feeling attraction for you. at the very least, you’ve scored a point on her, and there’s nothing beta about giving yourself pleasure.

  50. Several years ago, I became interested in a bartender at a pub I frequently visited. Nursing an overwhelming crush, and after having had maybe two or three casual conversations with her, I expressed my interest by saying (prepare to permanently cringe in vicarious embarassment), “I think you’re really beautiful.”

    She let me down easy. A little too easy, in fact. Instead of responding with coldness or a cutting insult, a look of pure pity crept over her face, and she began her rejection spiel with: “I think you’re a really nice guy, but…” She capped off her mercy killing by tenderly patting my arm.

    I appreciated her kindness, and I do still. By today’s standards, she was under no obligation to have concern for my feelings, let alone to attempt to physically comfort me. Yet while her intentions were pure, that she thought pity appropriate was an insult in itself, however accidental. She unmistakably revealed her low opinion of my market value. In thinking about the incident the next day, I almost wished she had been brutal, and in so doing implied that she thought me a worthy opponent, instead of a wretch.

    Since learning how to talk to women, using much of the same advice Roissy promotes, I have been turned down, but not been so blatantly the recipient of pity.
    Pity has its place in social relations, but those one pities should not be made aware that their prospects are deemed so wretched. In turning men down, I wish women would do what I do to girls in whom I am uninterested. I tell them I have a significant other even when I don’t. I don’t trade in further explanation of my lack of attraction or in insincere, qualified praise. She doesn’t have to be convinced; what matters is that you show her you respect her enough to not patronize her.

    I once did to another girl what the barmaid did to me. I think I told the former, “I think you’re a great person, but…” She hated me afterwards. After experiencing the barmaid’s pity, I understood why.

    Like this: “Why be picky? I’m not.”

    1) To dazzle the girl and break through her reflexive rejection aura,

    2) To salvage your dignity and esteem to go on to the next one,

    If you’re going for #1, you can probably get away with insulting her shoes, but calling her a cheap whore probably is not the way to go about it. A lot of girls immediately reject any guy they approach (have fun with the cats, ladies) and casually brushing off that rejection routinely shows them the confidence they’re looking for.

    But, they might want to consider how their reaction plays on the women witnessing the “scalding acid” attack.

    Personally, I’d probably avoid any guy who’s weak enough to get sucked into a verbal sparring match.

    But the guy whose face shows a bit of surprise and “whoa she’s a psycho”; who then says something politely simple like “So sorry to interrupt your conversation”; and who then walks away, would impress me. Juxtaposed against the bitchy foil, he would look classy and self-controlled while she would look pathetic and vile.

    Of course, I’m just one type of woman. I’m sure there are others who would thrive on the altercation and love to go out with the retortee. The question is, are there more women like me then there are of them? Which choice will improve your odds of scoring that night?

    She slapped me again. I escalated with a kiss, and another slap, while she was stunned from the kiss. She got away with two slaps before I grabbed a hank of her tresses, and tossed her in the nearby coat closet…

    A violent petting session and a B.J. later, I was mixing my final set. (With her glaring dirty looks the whole time)
    We dated for two weeks before I met a stunning Brazilian.

    Some girls need their castles stormed by shock and awe, because they have been princesses their whole lives and don’t know how to be real.

    That one’s priceless.

    Trading blows. Wow.

    The most aggressive I ever had to be was hair-grab with “Oh, Shut The Fuck Up.” followed by a kiss, the slap, me:”Are You Done?”, followed by another kiss… and later the usual outcome of unadulterated unrestrained sex.

    Makes me wonder what I could have gotten away with in retrospect… oh well…

    Once they open the door with slapping, have at it… it does get them into pure emotion… They become very sexual creatures.

    The slapping gets into their baser self, anger is a powerful gateway into the bedroom. They love violence just as much as men, but are very restrained and repressed in exploring and expressing it.

    Younger girls will let that carefully composed mask slip more frequently then older wiser ones. Add alcohol or coke found at frat/sor parties… and you get disinhibitation.

    Dis-inhibit-ation: the deliberate, willful act of getting her consent.

    All the empty protestations against fornication (with you) cease when you provide them with privacy.

    I have long since retired from finding the need to employ
    such behavior, I now-a-days prefer sex given within True Love.

    But returning to the nature of the Thread/Topic, I observed canned counters to be un-natural and forced. Yet necessary for betas to use, if they are to transit up.

    I have always just been myself and intuitively acted in the moment. Some girls do not want you, but you have to feel the vibe (its a sexless fear of males one, more commonly found in femme lesbians) You can tell if she is flirting shamelessly with males, and otherwise cavorting that its all good.

  66. clio:
    re: “why be picky? i obviously wasn’t.”

    As such things go, this is very good. It could be rendered shorter, pithier, and, I think, more effective, by dropping the past tense and the “obviously”.

    Like this: “Why be picky? I’m not.”

    clio, you have perfectly emasculated the semantical spirit of this commenter’s excellent retort. this is a great example of why men should never heed a woman’s advice in matters of dating, love, or the pursuit of sex. regardless of how well-meaing they are (and i believe reports of their well-meaningness are overblown), women will dispense advice to men that is completely at odds with what actually works to a man’s advantage, and yet will do so in plausibly-enough sounding terms that the effect is one of sabotage for those unsuspectingly naive men who can’t discern the falsity of it.

    perhaps natural selection designed it this way, so that men who are able to breach not only women’s gatekeeper defenses, but their counterproductive and insipid “dating advice” as well, have proven themselves truly worthy ALPHAS. women after all need a system for weeding in the winners.

    to the baleful facts of clio’s watered down and utterly feminized version of the original retort:

    “I’m not” is a world away linguistically from “I obviously wasn’t” or even just “I wasn’t”. the former tells the intended target that the man is low status because he does not discriminate amongst who he tries to bed and therefore must be a desperate loser, allowing her to rationalize away the pseudo-insult as the bleatings of a bitter beta.

    the latter avoids the stench of ill-timed self-deprecation while it tells her he considers ONLY HER, at least at that moment, to be beneath his station and worth not much more than a random hookup attempt in a bar. this one will sting a lot more while implying the man’s higher status and maintaining enough veneer of clever humor to seed confusion and self-doubt, both wonderful emotions for greasing the gears of a female’s attraction mechanism.

    come to think of it, that’s why you didn’t like it.

    i would drop the “obviously”, though. it’s overkill.

    right on.
    slapping is a form of kino, and, if correctly interpreted that way, a very potent form indeed.

    i prefer to dispense with the linguistic rigmarole altogether and just use implication instead:
    “come on, you could lower your standards, too.”

  68. Roissy, the trouble with “WBP/I wasn’t” is that it’s got a built-in ambiguity. “Wasn’t? When?” is what would go through my mind if I heard something like that. “WBP/I’m not” makes it clear that you are referring to the person in front of you at the moment, making the implicit insult so startlingly plain that the person on the receiving end may well take a second or two to be certain she’s heard it.

    That’s all I meant. I could be wrong – I’m not completely certain about it. You are reading too much into my change of tense and emphasis.

  69. roissy @66 did an excellent job explaining why clio’s changes to my retort weakened it. “Obviously” is optional, as it is indeed overkill. “Why be picky. I wasn’t.” is short, sweet, and it works.

  70. “Why be picky? I’m not” does have an appeal – deliver it with a grin, and the woman might think you were being merely self-deprecating. And then – a double-take later – she realises that she’s the one being slighted. That’s its strength. But I agree that from some men it might sound weak. I could imagine a very tall and handsome man delivering it with crushing charm.
