Lets be friends so I can slowly just stop texting you and waste your time.

Because saying "let's just be friends" feels like it's nicer than being blunt. I personally think being honest and direct about it is better (which means I won't pretend I want to be friends if I don't), but that's why.
Also, maybe they did want to be friends, but they ended up feeling more awkward about the confession than they thought they would, so they drift away even though the intent was there. Just a possibility.0

Women instinctively don't like high level risk taking. Rejecting and asking out men is taking a risk.
Women that naturally fight their instincts are more honest and blunt about things.0
