My Stomach Is Really Upset

One of the best excuse you can probably give and related to your body health condition which cannot be ignored by others.

Make a dull and upset face and send a photo of yours to your loved girlfriend and if you can send a voice note sounding like you are in a real pain, then it would be more good in this case.

Now, to make this more genuine you can also consider in showing some of your medication.

I know you are just faking it but such medicines are mostly present in almost every household in medical kit box.

Take two or three and send pic of it that shows that you are actually taking your dose to get back healthy as soon as possible.

If she visits you in person, then also this reason will work as perfect and all you need to do is just act.

There will be no direct signs that you can get caught.

If you are all alone at home and all of your family member is out,

Thus, considering it for a security reason and when you actually don’t have keys.

Suddenly, if all of your family members is out and you were consider by them that you will take care of the house.

You just can’t simply leave out of the house without locked up.

I Have Guest At My House

This will be more reliable excuse to make when you have guests in a true sense.

But wait! We can still make a way out of it. If you have good relations with your neighbor’s then you can take their help and ask them just to come at your house.

Gather 4 – 5 neighbor’s and make them your guests and click a picture of them.

Send it to your girlfriend and let her know that you are really busy with your guests.

One thing here to remember, if your girlfriend is asking you to hang out today, probably in next 1 or 2 hours, only then you can think to use this reason.

Being present and involved in guests meetings and going out with someone, won’t sound good.

And just for sake to treat your guests better and to give them good hospitality you have a solid strong point that you needs to be at home and can’t come out for some other gathering.

Not In The Mood To Hang Out

Very straight forward and simple. You are too human and you do need to take time for yourself.

Very sensible reason.
But wait! It is not that easy as you think.

You do need to have lots of gut to say this statement to your girlfriend and especially if your girlfriend has that ‘Bossy’ attitude,

Then be very well prepared of her anger and a lot more.

But it totally depends upon you. Being in a relationship and being in that zone with each other for a long time,

You should be able to convenience her without getting into any trouble.

Just be natural and ask her that you need a bit free time to spend and it is not written or any hard core rule you need to listen to every demand of your girlfriend.

Sometime, you can too be in a different zone where you just feel to be left all alone (not because you are in a depress zone) but just to relax and stay in calm for a while.

If you both share a very good understanding, then explaining a bit natural things will be good enough for you to just cancel out the plans.

Excuses To Not Hang Out Last Minute

Excuse to not going out with friends

Thinking of some epic and very strong points and excuses to use when you don’t want to hang out for the plans which have been informed to you on a last minute.

You Called Me Too Late

WOW! Can’t think off a better sentence than this.

You are just taking a chill pill at your home and all of sudden your best friend just informed you about we need to gather at 9:00PM for a party.

And the current time let’s say is 7:00 PM.

What are you thinking more on this?
Simply say this amazing line – ‘You called me too late’.

With this add a reason like you are going somewhere else, you are following a strict sleep pattern guided by your doctor and the list goes on.

If you can’t think off any additional reason with this line, then don’t worry this line is so powerful in itself that it would be much more than enough to stop the conversation at place.

There are many things you need to consider before going out for sudden events or parties – like you need to check with your timing, your costume, place and etc.,

Managing all these stuffs in just 2 or 3 hours is not possible and therefore it gives you stronger position to not to go out with your friends.

That Place Is Too Far From Here

One more and a very good reason you can take this into your part.

Now  be practical and very sensible in this situation.

You just can’t use this excuse when the gathering or meet up place is very near to you.

Only when you realize that you will atleast 1 hour drive from your home, then it should be a valid point for you to cancel the plan.

Wrapping all your work and other schedules already in lined and after that 1 hour drive is a definitely terrible idea for you as a person to opt for.

I’m Feeling Like A Nausea

Will sound to be unbelievable reason at first but for this you need to act a little bit.

You can take this in other way – like, at first you do agree with your colleagues to hang out with them.

But when the time comes closer where you need to go out and meet them, then probably you can consider either to text one of your friend or choose to make a call.

In such situation, sound very dull, in extreme tiredness and uneasy.

This is what you tend to feel in Nausea. (Nausea is tendency of vomiting).

You just can’t think off in a very adjustable way where you can handle your personal health condition in a ease and normal way.

But for this it will be very advisable for you to stay at home and relax for a while.

My Dog Just Messed Up My Clothes

Don’t use any reason or excuse just inorder you just want to cancel out for the plan.

But while using such excuses you need to make it look more natural and true appealing.

Like in this case, if you have dog then it would good fit for you to use this excuse to not hang out.

Specially if you are invited to a theme party then you do require to wear on specific costumes or dress based on that theme.


If such of your clothes are messed up like coffee spills over it or your clothes are completely snatched by your dog.

Then it is a complete valid reason for you to not attend such events and cancel out the plan on last minute.

It Started Raining Heavily

Not a far up of a distance but gathering or hanging out with your friends in a near by streets.

And actually it started to rain then, what a easy peasy reason for you to pass on to your friends.

Now, you can still make up to the gathering with an umbrella but very lazy reason you can think to use with your friends.

If you live upon a place, where it rains like unstoppable and you know or can make a guess where you firmly believe that this rain won’t stop in near time.

Then, you can call off your plan along with friends.

Funny Excuses To Not Hang Out

I Slipped In My Bathroom

This is very painful if actually got caught in this.

But if you are just using this reason to fake it and just for sake to cancel out the plans then,

Trust me, the conversation and the way in which you are going to explain this situation will be totally hilarious.

And if you some bunch of naughty friends then won’t leave this opportunity to pull your leg even more.

All of these will surely make a good and create too much laugh on both sides but remember you need to have that control power.

On the other side, going far a bit with this situation then, you can add something like – ‘Your ankle is in real and total hard pain’.

Such accidents and imagining one-self into such zones will definitely give other people to believe that you won’t be able to hang out with them.

Bro! You Called Me Last?

Being they are your best buddies and closed one’s, there are slight chances where you friends or colleagues will call you very last in their list.

Showing your genuine and deep disappointment with them will just end up the further conversation.

But make sure that you are actually on the last person to call.

Sound very emotional and attached with them and pass on some two or three moments where you have been together and enjoyed the most of it and getting invited at last.

Doesn’t really make any sense at personal level.

The excuse might childish and could be funny at the end.

I’m Stuck Inside A Lift

This can be a real life problem but at this you should plan to use it against for your friends.

Go something like this –

‘Hey John, I was coming to hang out with y’all people and was really excited to meet after a long but my destiny is really not in a mood that it will allow me to hang out with you people.

Bro, I don’t know but this piece of shitty lift of my building had really stopped working and I’m stuck inside’.

Appear to be very frustrated in this pic and this will add on more spice into your reason.
