    How to turn down a married man?

    Need advice on how to say no, politely and without offending.

    Since I've had a few drinks.... I would say, 'Hey jerkwad - why don't you go #*$& your WIFE?'

    For the older, single men, just say thank you, but you aren't looking for anything right now.

    There is only one way: Be FIRM and mean it. You say "Absolutely NO. Do I need to remind you that you're married?" And then you walk away. If he persists, tell him you'll tell his wife.

    This is a friend's friend's husband. That's why I'm trying to be polite.

    You don't owe him anything. You can still be firm, but polite at the same time. Just mean what you say.

    Yeah I don't see the need to be polite. Just be honest? Tell him you're not interested in him, married men in general, or doing anything to hurt your friend.

    I'd just say, "I don't date married men" and leave it at that. Not insulting, just true.

    "I do not be part of what will destroy your marriage even though you do not value it".
    "I will not have this burden weighing on me for the rest of my life".
