It really depends who they try to set me up with and how the person tries to set you up.
This one girl tried setting me up with a girl I totally wasn't into and the girl was hitting on me, kissing me on the cheek, etc and that was very awkward.
Another time, the same girl tried setting me up with her friends. She was decent looking but the one who tried setting me up was getting way too ahead. She's like you guys are gonna be a great couple, you'll thank me later.
I was like wtf, I just met her. Slow down, besides this doesn't even involve you.
Oh my goodness! How incredibly awkward! I'd say that the most important thing to do is if you have a chance, let the person know you are not interested (the person setting you up). I would have a conversation with them and let you know how uncomfortable you feel about being put on the spot like that. Make sure they know this. Hopefully they won't do this again!
If someone keeps pushing to have you set up, then tell them respectfully to stop and that they are being too pushy. Hopefully they understand. But if they don't then I would again have a serious conversation about it. If they are persistent and won't stop, then it's time to unfriend that person.
I think a lot of times when a person is trying to set you up, they are just trying to be helpful. It's good intentions, but sometimes people can be overbearing. It's okay to say no and be firm. Don't let them sucker you into something you don't want to do. You have a right to say no to something you are comfortable with.
if I'm not interested in her I'll just try to get out of it without making it too awkward or being very rude but tell that person later that I absolutely hate stuff like that and that they should not do it again
it most of the times does not work, and rightfully said, is very awkward. nicely tell him off and afterward, when you are alone, punch the one trying to set you up in the nose lol. no seriously talk it out after with the initiator.
Simple: Tell them to stop trying to set you up with somebody. If they don't like that you rather be to yourself, find new friends. You don't want to be involve with people who disrespect you because they can't stand seeing somebody happy while single. Its jealously. Set your boundaries and get it straight. They don't care about you or what you really want. A true friend wouldn't do that. Teasing at times okay, but now it depends on what type of teasing. I don't like it, and I wouldn't do that to a friend of mine. You did what you had to do.
My friends used to try and set me up on dates all the time. I'm guessing they felt sorry for me because I didn't have a boyfriend and they did. I just told them to stop match making for me, I knew they meant well. But I'm perfectly capable of choosing who I want to date. They always think they know what's best for you but they don't. My first date was set up, he was a friend of a friend. I wasn't physically attracted to him and he bored me to death, banging on about politics. I no longer have any contact with those friends. As far as dates go, I make those decisions for myself.
