You have been out with someone a few times and you feel unsure, or decided it's not happening. You continue to receive texts from them; how do you handle it?
Respond the same as always?
Short responses to be polite?
Tell them to stop?
Start off short and then ignore them if they don't get the hint?

If you don't want to date this person, let them know. If they persist, then ignore their messages.
I've had this experience in the past. I was talking to this guy, I never even met him! And he for some reason felt that even though I had expressed that I wasn't interested, I HAD to keep talking to him.
I'm all for giving people chances, and I gave this guy a chance. But after our conversation online it became quite clear that we would not work out and that this was not happening. He had completely different views to mine and it just wouldn't work out. I was nice about it, told him politely that I was sorry but that I didn't want to pursue anything as from our conversation it was clear we were not going to work out.
He got angry, but persisted that I must absolutely keep talking to him. So I started to ignore him. He got mad. But kept messaging me.
He would not leave me alone after me ignoring him. He kept sending me random messages like "What do you think we'd be doing right now if we were together?" and creepy stuff like that.
So I downloaded an app called Mr Number and it allowed me to block his calls and texts from appearing on my phone. Thanks goodness!
Basically the only thing you can do is let them down as nicely as possible and then ignore any more messages. Some people just cannot accept rejection.1

There's different ways in which how I deal with each situation.
If it is someone I want to show that I dislike, I would read the message and ignore it (on whatsapp, it shows the sender if the receiver had read it or not)
If it was someone I really wasn't too fond of, I would just reply with the driest replies ever like "ok" "why" "lol" "nvm" so that the conversation dies out without it being the fault of either of us.
If it was someone I would still like to keep contact with, I'd use polite sentences but I wouldn't break them off completely. Just take longer to respond than usual.0
