A.E. Hellstorm (aehellstorm) | 196 comments Anyone who knows about a good, relatively short expression or idiom for telling someone 'no' in a marriage proposal?

Jenycka Wolfe (jenyckawolfe) | 301 comments declined?
refused?
turned down?

A.E. Hellstorm (aehellstorm) | 196 comments Yay, 'turned down' is what I'm looking for. Thanks. :-)

Charles Hash | 1054 comments Also acceptable: "I'm sleeping with your brother."

Best friend is virtually interchangeable.

Ahaha, yeah, that would've been... interesting... :-D I have to use that in the next marriage proposal I'm writing about.

I'm honored, but I just can't accept...

'... because I'm sleeping with your brother...' :-D

Thanks all, but Jenycka got it. The proposal was made some time ago, and the character is thinking about it, that's why 'turned down' works best.
