There is no way for you to tell a guy you dont like him and he not get hurt. No matter what you do...he is at least gonna be alittle hurt.

lilmsattitude answered Tuesday August 10 2004, 11:52 pm:
Be upfront with him. Be careful of what you say, and don't try to avoid hurting him to the point that you lead him to believe that if he holds out long enough, you will change your mind. You may have to give the dreaded "Just Friends" speech that no one really wants to hear, but if he can't be your friend, he REALLY won't cut it as a boyfriend.

Mystique answered Tuesday August 10 2004, 11:09 pm:
Dear Chelsea
Why not something like Option#1
" You know <insert guys name here>,...Ive been thinking, and I value our friendship so much that I am willing to sacrifice the fact that we cant be together in that way B/C of jeapordizing what we have as friends. Wouldnt you agree?"
OR Option #2
" Im just not ready for that kind of relationship right now, but I am flattered that you would think of me that way"
Then theres always Option #3
"If I were into guys youd be my top choice, so sorry Im Gay...but hey? we can still be friends cant we?" (grin)
Hope these helped Lemmie know :)
Mysique :)

court_sport909 answered Tuesday August 10 2004, 10:53 pm:
I think the best why is to say, "I like you to much as a friend then to ruin it by going out with you." If he does not get it then you can tell him that you think of him as a friend and only as a friend.
I hope i help!!

Chellz8 answered Tuesday August 10 2004, 9:48 pm:
tell him that you really just want to be friends.. and you dont like him like that.. its to hard to picture you 2 more then friends or even best friends n maybe some time you will grow to like him (( like that )).. because at the moment maybe you just need him as a friends

all you can do is be honest and tell him, that hurts less then leading him on..don't be like well i think your just say you think a "friend" relationship would be best..i'm sure he'll feel a little let down, but he'll get over it..atleast he'll have a new friend..xO`lexi

Just sit down and talk to him. Be completly honest with him. Tell him that you two would be better off as friends and nothing more. If he is truly a great guy, he will understand and be thankful that you were honest to him & didnt lead him on.

1) tell him you have your eye on someone else that you've liked for a while
2) tell him you aren't looking for a bf right now
3) if he's your friend, tell him you don't want to make things weird between the two of you
