High school is a time to have fun and enjoy yourselves. It definitely isn’t a time when you should be dealing with marriage proposals. It might come from your childhood sweetheart, but this isn’t the nineteenth century, and being in your teens and in high school is definitely not the time to marry. So, what do you do when you actually have to deal with proposals at the tender age of high school? Of course, you reject them, but how? Here are a few simple ways to help you out –
Play the Clueless Coy Girl
Act like a clueless girl who is stupid and doesn’t know her way out. This may either put off the boy entirely or enough to wait for until you are ready. After all, you aren’t going to get married in high school, are you?
Reject him Outright
Tell him a straight no. It is alright. You can say a straight no. This method lacks tact and is quite brutal, you will hurt him, but you have to do it. There is just no other way out. If nothing else comes to mind, go ahead and let him know in clear words that you aren’t really interested.
Talk it Out
If you are good friends with him and know where things are going, talk to him. Tell him you are still in high school and you aren’t yet ready for it. Tell him it will be a long time before you are actually ready for it. This works best if you know each other fairly well and this is even better if you are good friends.
The Royal Ignore
This isn’t a nice thing to do but it is a way out anyway. If someone in high school isn’t sane enough to understand that they cannot get married at this point, they deserve every bit of the royal ignore. Do yourself and them a favor and just ignore them until they forget about you and get over it.
High school isn’t a place to propose. Date, yes but propose, no. No one in high school is mature enough to make such a big life decision. And someone who is mature enough, knows very well high school is not the time for marriage. It is always a good idea to not pull out the proposal card while still in high school.
