🔒 3 Easy Ways to Say “I Actually Have Morals” to Grown Men Who Still Think They’re in a Frat

Remember when we could go to bars and get hit on by useless men? Now, it’s kind of still happening, but it’s all of us swiping on Tinder and going on socially-distanced dates in the park…or so we hope. Even on the more “relationship-based” apps, you can smell a white fratty bro who is “here for a good time, not a long time” from miles away. They don’t want to stay six feet apart, and they certainly don’t want to get to know you. Shocker. 

But have no fear, we have some useful sayings to use for you to get out of those dire situations—come on ladies, we don’t want you wasting your time even entertaining the idea of keeping those men (if you can even call them that) in your matches list. 

1. “No thanks, I’d rather light myself on fire”

This one is a bold but incredibly effective move on your part. It says “no” with passion, and also paints a vivid picture. Highly recommend.

2. “I have standards. I’ve set the bar, why don’t you come join me up here?”

Yes, sassy. But yes, true. You’re way above those boys who just want to get into your pants. You’re a fierce, independent woman who isn’t about to waste her time. 

3. “I’ll be accepting boyfriend applications for the next seven to ten business days”

Boy oh boy, this one. You gotta put those boys in their place. You set those boundaries, girl!

I hope these were helpful, and gave you some clear guidance as to how to confront these situations with 25 year-olds who still have their moms do their laundry. Ladies, you’ve totally got this, and you know yourself and your standards. Never settle; not for Brian, and definitely not for Trent or Chad.
