Which is the WORST of these two evils? Discuss:

Okay this post is for both the men and the ladies. 

This question has come up for me a few times and I’ve debated it. I have a firm position on the issue, but I thought I’d throw it out to you. 
The scenario: 
You’re a guy, and you see a woman you like. She’s hot, she seems to be unmarried (you checked for a ring), there’s no man in sight, AND she’s in a good mood (no screwfaces here). 
You approach her and get to talking. You chit chat, run your best lines, and ask for her number. 
Which is worse?
She says “no thank you. You’re nice and all…but. No.”
(or something a lot harsher)
She takes/gives a number and kinda sorta says something along the lines of you’ll see each other again. But you never hear from her.
Speak on it:
