How do you weasel out of a hangout invite?

So, my girlfriend recently got asked to hangout by someone shes not really familiar with and doesnt want to accept. Unfortunately, shes not really comfortable with flat out saying no and doesnt want to risk hurting feelings. Typically, if i were in this situation, i would say that "im busy on that day", but it seems that risks being asked to hangout again on another day. And as we both just finished our school semesters, it doesnt seem that that excuse will hold for very long.
So, how do you guys weasel your way out of an invite to hangout?

man up and tell them no, or that you're busy. After a few attempts they'll get the hint.

Solution: You spend more time with your girlfriend doing couple things. Gives her the excuse she needs, gives you more time with your girlfriend. Clearly win-win.

Is this "someone" male or female? Because to me this reeks of "male acquaintance who wants to hang out with uninterested/taken female"...

If that's the case, she needs to be upfront and ridiculously honest because guys who are friend-zoned often don't understand that's the case.

If that's not the case, then just say she's busy. If asked again, busy. Eventually they'll get the point.

Before reading that comment, I was going to say that you can easily make an excuse about being busy with school.

Also, pointing out it being a male or female acquaintance makes a HUGE difference. If it's a guy like said above, he definitely would need to be told straight-forward, otherwise they'd keep trying.



It seems like it's someone who wants to become friends with her, but your girlfriend doesn't want to try becoming friends with her. No real way without hurting feelings. Tell her to deal with it, or be even worse about it and force herself to do something she doesn't want to do. Up to her.
