Why is it that if someone rejects a date, they're automatically "Not worth their time"? Their worth doesn't drop just because they aren't interested in you.

"being all clever and confident only gets you horribly crushed"

as opposed to what, being unintelligent and timid? XD

Just because rejection is always a possibility doesn't mean we should never take a chance. In any case, once OP decides to let the cat out of the bag she has to be prepared to take whatever reaction she gets, but if she has a thick enough skin, she's allowed to take a risk here and there and pick herself up when she falls, isn't she? Not up to you what she can or can't take.

He's getting coffee at Starbucks. I'm sure he's got cash somewhere if he wanted to date. OP, don't be discouraged. We like your style. It will work on the right person! Hang in there! :)

Why is he a dick for not wanting to go on a date with OP? I don't think the way he turned her down was that bad either. I wouldn't know how to replay to that without saying something along the line of what he did.

Man-hating ? I think he's a dick because he could have just said "Sorry, but no thank you." and then pay. I don't like the way he rejected her. Don't worry that crush being a male or female doesn't change how I feel about that response.

The fml didn't quote him, so he probably didn't say that. For all you know, he could have said "sorry, I think I'll just pay for my coffee instead", and OP is just relaying the event as him saying he'd rather pay for the coffee. Try to save face if you want.
It's ok to call a guy a dick, but totally not to call a girl a bitch. mkay.

Fair point, I actually thought he'd said that, so I take it back.
I've nothing against calling a woman a bitch, so I don't see why I would have a problem calling a man a dick.

#72 I don't know why your last two comments are getting downvoted - your reasoning is understandable and you are clarifying it - I don't agree with the first calling him a dick but I think your point of not having regrets is a good one, but I don't see why your later explanations are getting downvoted.

Maybe he got flustered and didn't even know what he replied... In an alternate FML world "Today, the cute barista I always see at Starbucks asked me out on a date. I panicked and rejected her, I think I screwed my chances, FML'

He's drinking overpriced coffee at Starbucks, he obviously can afford a date. He's just not that into you. (he's probably also scared that if it goes bad he's going to have to find a new Starbucks.)
