Say you fancy someone. Would you rather be blown off and ignore by that person or would you prefer them feign interest just to be stood up.

I'd rather them be straight up with me, that way we're not just wasting each others time, and it's not real nice to mislead someone, even if said person was just trying to be nice.

Blow me off in the most obvious way please. If the guy were to fake being interested in me and stand me up in the end, he's probably regret what happens to him next.

Blow me off, it's easy to tell when someone is being fake anyways, I'll usually point it out right away but if this were the case I'd probably play along and then stand them up or when they attempt to stand me up I make them feel idiotic.

Prefer honesty.........but from my experience people aren't honest. I had this one guy who kept making dates with me, he was fine with texting, didn't want to talk on the phone though, he stood me up 3 times, then he wanted me to go out with him and I wouldn't, being stood up 3 times was just too ridiculous. Lost his temper and started calling me all sorts of names. I blocked his phone number and I unfriended him on Facebook, and he created a new profile to talk to me because he couldn't talk to me any other way (and he didn't know where i lived and I had switched jobs so he no longer knew where I worked), so I blocked the new profile too. I mean, by that point, why would I want to go out with him? I was done.

Be honest. It's always the best way. Playing games like that just makes others hate you, it's better to be straight. Then, even if they are upset they don't feel like they were being played. It sucks to think someone likes you, and then they are just jerking you around.

I'd prefer people to just be honest, but blown off is the better of the options. Though I've never had either of them happen to me.

Yep. Why keep wasting time on the "what if's" move on to the next.

Ouch, having stood someone up, you guys are making me look like a monster.

There was some miscommunication involved, so it wasn't exactly intentional even if I accept the blame for it. Of course, that ship is long sunk regardless.

Cant say i've heard the term "blown off" used in this way. Not what came to my mind when i read it.

I've experienced both of these and neither of them is very pleasant but I'd probably rather be turned down flat than being lead on.

It depends a little on how exactly they're ignoring me though. Being completely ignored, like not having your existence acknowledged, is one of the worst things you can do to someone, especially if they like you.

This is like choosing between puke and shit, really.

I'd prefer... Oh that's not how you mean 'blown off'? Whatever, I still prefer that option. Just be honest.

Honesty has always been the best policy in my book.
