I’ve Got A Headache And Four More Poor Excuses For No Sex Tonight Dear…
There comes a time in relationships when the luster of sex wears off. You may even be deciding whether he is really the guy for you. In the interim, having sex with him just doesn’t feel right. You don’t want to sabotage things just in case you realize that it was just you needing some time off, and you don’t want to risk hurting his feelings either. If you want some time to regroup and pause your love life to sort things out, there are some excuses which will hold water, and others which will send up red flags. Being thoughtful about what you say will make the difference between turning him off and saying good bye. The last thing you want to do is to start him thinking about whether he wants to be with you too.
What are the best excuses to use when you don’t feel like having sex?
If you have heard the old joke “I have a headache” it is because telling someone you don’t want to have sex is never a good feeling for either of you. Saying you have a headache is a slap in the face to your guy. If you want to tell him no sex tonight, at least be creative enough to not hurt his feelings. Try these excuses:
I have an early meeting at work that is stressing me out
If you are stressed, it is hard to focus on anything. Sex is something that if your mind is not in it, it is not nearly as enjoyable. Having an early meeting means you have to get to bed early, and being worried about it is like a double whammy. If he understands that work is important to you, he will understand that it has to take precedence over sex this one time. It may not work for more than a night, but it is a way to get a reprieve without offending him.
2. I have a gynecologist appointment in the morning
Now, you and I both know that it makes absolutely no difference that you have a doctor’s appointment in the morning. You don’t even have to. All you have to do is make mention to the gynecologist and a guy will go running for the hills. Not only do they not want to hear about, they don’t even want to discuss anything related to it. They would rather stay in the dark. The last thing they are going to do is question your motives, or ask why that makes a difference. They will just assume that it does, no questions asked. The whole subject of your period is nothing they want to hear anything about. If you can’t use the period excuse because it has already been used too recently, this is the next best excuse to use.
3. You pulled something during your yoga class
Okay, so you don’t even take yoga, does he know that? All you have to do is say that you tried yoga for the first time and pulled something crucial to your love making capabilities. Telling him that you stretched too hard will not only get you out of sex tonight, if you play it off well enough, you can extend it for a day or two. It doesn’t have to be an excuse that is just for a night, it can last an entire week if you are a good enough actress.
4. Your mom is in town
If you don’t want him to sleep at your house tonight, and want an excuse not to stay at his, tell him that your mom is in overnight. Telling him that she is laid over in town for the night can put a halt to any sexual ideas that he had for the evening. Not only will he not want to come to your house, he will understand why you have to skip going to his. He never has to find out that she wasn’t there. If your mom is not close by, you can use any family member to escape sex for the night without being discovered. You know he is too lazy to stop over early, and won’t risk making you angry by coming over late at night.
5. You forgot to take your pill
If you are someone who is on the pill, you probably won’t have any condoms laying around, nor would he be carrying any. If you tell him that you forgot to take your pill, chances are that he won’t want to take a chance becoming a dad. Just tell him since you forgot your pill you have the potential to become pregnant and would rather wait until after you are done ovulating. Again, the whole world “ovulation” will throw him for a loop and elicit silence.
