    Default any advice

    this guy i met at school is trying to get me to come to this Christian club (Young Life, to be specific) thing which i really hate the idea of. any way to just politely say "no thanks" but not offend the guy?

    shit, this sounds like Dear Abby.

    Why do you hate the idea of it?

    Don't lie to him, just politely tell him that you have your own religious methods / beliefs, etc.

    First off if you are really only 15 then hell no do not go!

    Secondly if its just another one of your classmates and he is juts trying to be friendly, be friendly back and politely say no thankyou to him and that its not your type of thing.

    I say just tell him, "no thanks. I don't want to offend you but I'm just not interested." Just be truthful with him.

    Regarding YoungLife, however...it's COOL! I wouldn't consider it too preachy and is a non-denominational Christian organization (so, they're not trying to convert with doctrine, etc.). It's just a fun group of students who can come together and learn from one another and share their faith journeys and life experiences. If you're the least bit interested, I'd say give it a shot just once. YoungLife started right after I graduated from high school; however, I've worked with many students who were very involved with it and have volunteered with them. There are Christians and non-Christians, alike, who attend YL. Just my $.02.

    By the way...it may very well be too preachy for you. I'm just saying that the only way to know is to go experience it for yourself to make your own decision (and not listen to others). Make sense?

    You could say that about almost anything. The truth is that a person doesn't necessarily have to experience something to know they're not interested in it. I'm sure you can think of more than a few examples of things that you're not interested in and have no need to experience them in order to know that.

    To the OP, if you don't want to go, don't go. It's no big deal to tell a person that it's not your thing. Being able to do that in a tactful way is an important life skill. This is your opportunity to practice that with a very low-stress situation.

    Just be honest and polite and say no.

    You don't have to apologize for not wanting to do something. If you can learn to do this at 15 then the rest of your life will be much easier.

    Nothing mean, nothing rude but just no thanks, I'm going to pass.

    What is your problem with a 15 year old attending? Its a organization that is meant for young people.

    If its not for you then do not go. I think the advice KT gave was excellent.
    ((Just My Two Cents))
    And thats about what its worth.

    If you are having a problem with just politely declining the offer, then i suspect you might be mildly interested, but just don't want to admit it to yourself. Go check it out one time, what can it hurt?
