In a review of the album Under My Skin, David Browne of Entertainment Weekly said "Lavigne herself sounds more burdened; ... the sk8erboi of the first album has turned out to be a selfish, nasty creep who leaves when she won't go to bed with him" in reference to Don't Tell Me.[3] Stephen Thomas Erlewine of Allmusic highlighted the song as a 'track pick' in a review of the album, Under My Skin.[4]

The video was nominated for Best Pop Video at the 2004 MTV Video Music Awards.[5]
