Re: People Who Won't Take No For An Answer.

Just say "No, I am NOT in any interested in being set up with your brother.  I don't want to hear any more about it, because it might cause me to be unkind and you to look bad too."

@Desertdi  LOL.  Actually, the "old geezer" is 3 years younger than I am.  I will be 70 and he is will be 67 soon.

 

I don't need to see his 1040 , sis makes sure everyone knows how successful he is.

 

I don't care if he has George Clooney/Idris Alab good looks, Stephen Hawking brains, Jeff Bezo money,  not interested.

Even if your state has given a green light to social gatherings, I'd skip this one. Hopefully her charming baby brother will have found a princess by the time of your next get-together.

Re: People Who Won't Take No For An Answer.

People who refuse to take NO for an answer, rarely deserve to receive YES, as a reply.

 

A  friend will understand that no means no, unless we're trying to be protective of their feelings, while not making our own perfectly clear.  There's no wiggle room here.

@QueenDanceALot  Sure, you can come.  Just remember with him you get the whole clan. 

 

I'd bet $100 bucks part of all the breakups were due to his sister(s) making sure "baby brother" is being treated the way they treat him.

 

If I had ever, even once, referred to, or  introduced my sister as my "baby sister" she would have asked me if I bonked my damned head.

When asked "why not?" simply reply "because I said so".
