If you haven't already noticed, the dating world is a battleground. A good comeback is as important as a well-planned pick-up line.
Most of the time, pick-up lines are either terribly cheesy or downright creepy. That's why it's mandatory that you have a smart rejection line ready for the regular Don Juans at the bar.
Now, Twitter users clearly understand your problem. Which is why good samaritans who have been at the receiving end of a stinker have started the hashtag #DesiRejectionLines that compiles some of the everyday turn downs with a desi punch.
The basic 'I need to focus on studies so can you not'
I have to concentrate on my studies and upcoming entrance exams. If u can wait 5 years it's ok 😐😐 #DesiRejectionLines— Yash Mehta (@yashm3hta) March 1, 2016
I'm not able to concentrate on studies now. I'm wasting lots of time. We should stop seeing each other from today. #DesiRejectionLines— AASH (@Kosher_Souls) February 29, 2016
