Best Way to Turn Down a Date

Group Therapy: What's the Best Way to Turn Down a Date?

This question is from a Group Therapy post in our TrèsSugar Community. Add your advice in the comments!

Today after work I stopped to put gas in my car. While I was waiting the guy next to me said I was beautiful, asked if I was in a relationship and asked for my number. I was put off by his approach and the fact that he didn't even ask my name. Whenever I am asked out it is usually by a classmate or someone I have hung out with before or met at work, so I was caught off guard. I turned him down by saying "sorry, but you are too old for me." I know, horrible thing to say. But, it was true (I'm 21 he was 30). When he left I felt really bad and now I am wondering what is the best way to turn down a complete stranger who asks for your number?
