二、拒絕搭訕金句 Common Phrases

It’s always flattering to receive compliments from strangers, but it’s not always welcomed when the other party tries to take another step forward. So how can we let someone down without hurting their ego and causing a scene? We’ve got a few ideas on how to deal with these awkward moments, have a look!

當被陌生人搭訕時我們多少會感到開心,但當他們想要有更進一步的接觸時,我們不一定歡迎。所以我們該如何婉拒別人,卻又不傷害到他們的自尊心同時也不會引起騷動呢?這裡有一些可以解決這些尷尬場面的方法,讓我們來練習看看吧!

1. Don’t randomly give out your contact information. 不要隨便地給出你的連絡資訊。

When you refuse to give someone your contact information, it’s best to just be direct and straightforward, no beating around the bush (or they’ll think you’re just playing hard to get).

當你拒絕給別人你的連絡資訊,最好是非常直接地拒絕他們,別拐彎抹角(不然他們會覺得你是在欲擒故縱)。

Sorry, but I don’t like to give out my personal information.

對不起,我不喜歡輕易地給出我的聯絡方式。

I apologize, but that’s too personal.

我很抱歉,但這太隱私了。

2. Find an excuse to get away. 找一個藉口離開。

Some people just aren’t good at rejecting others, but it doesn’t mean you should give in! Find an excuse to leave the situation, this will save you from the awkwardness and spare the other person from an embarrassing rejection.

有一些人不擅長拒絕別人,但這不代表你就要妥協!找一個藉口離開那個地方,這樣可以免去你的尷尬,也可以避免尷尬的拒絕。

It was nice to meet you, but my ride is here, it’s time for me to go.

很高興認識你,但我的車到了,我該走了。

Sorry, but I’m in a rush, I have to go now.

不好意思,但我正在趕時間,得先離開了。

3. Say you’re taken. 跟對方說你有交往對象了。

Being honest right at the beginning can save everyone time and effort. If you feel like someone is showing interest in you, but you already have a significant other, just say it.

在一開始就很坦白可以省下彼此的時間和精力。當你覺得對方開始對你有好感,但你已經有另外一半時,就誠實的說你有交往對象了。

You’re very kind, but I’m already seeing someone.

你是個很棒的人,但我已有交往對象了。

I don’t think my girlfriend/boyfriend will appreciate it.

我覺得我的女朋友/男朋友會介意。

4. You are just not interested. 你就是沒興趣。

Sometimes you’re just out for a good time with your friends and you just aren’t intrigued by the idea of dating and relationships. This is perfectly fine and people should respect that.

有時你只是想要和你的朋友們找找樂子,而你對約會或是交往其實並不感興趣。人人都應該給予尊重。

I’m flattered but I’m not interested in dating right now.

很謝謝你,但目前我對約會沒什麼興趣。

I’m just out with my girls/boys to have a good time, but I’m not looking for anything.

我只是和朋友們出來享受美好的時光,並沒有其他意思。

三、情境對話 Scenario Application

Let’s see how we can apply those phrases in real-life situations!

讓我們來看看我們能夠如何應用這些句子在日常生活中吧!

Leo: I really enjoy talking to you, do you want to exchange numbers?

Leo:跟你談話真的很開心,可以和你交換電話號碼嗎?

Katie: It was fun talking to you, too, but I’m already seeing someone and I don’t think my boyfriend will appreciate it.

Katie:我也是,和你聊天很愉快。但是我目前已經有交往對象了,而我想我男友可能會介意。

Carla: Hey, I’ve been wanting to get to know you. Would you like to get a drink together sometimes?

Carla:嘿!我一直都很想要好好認識你,能約你出去喝一杯嗎?

Joe: Haha, thanks, I’m flattered but I’m not interested in dating right now. Thank you, though!

Joe:哈哈,謝謝妳。實在很受寵若驚,但目前我對約會並不感興趣,但是還是很謝謝妳!


Rejections are never easy, but there’s nothing wrong in being honest and straightforward. Make sure you don’t give off a snooty or snobby attitude, though. It was probably harder for them to gather the courage to walk up to you in the first place, we need to respect that!

拒絕別人的搭訕並不簡單,但是做一個誠實直率的人也沒有錯。但還是要注意自己不要有驕傲、高傲的態度。對方一定也鼓起來很大的勇氣來約你的,我們需要敬意他人。
