    「興味がない」って。。。 ただ交際を断るのとは違う。俺はあの人を拒絶したんだ
    Does it mean She is different after got dump? or his life is different after that?
    The speaker is a man talking to his life and ex. He's sad.
    But I don't know why he won't use past tense untill the last context.
    Thank you.

    There's difference between just declining to be lovers and not accepting her(feeling,endevour and so on),he says.

    ただ交際を断る「の」とは違う
    ただ交際を断る「こと」とは違う

    Paraphrase will do in this sentence.
