This may sound kinda mean but i've been flirting with this guy, and then I decided that I actually don't like this guy anymore and that I can't see myself dating him. I can tell he is definitely under the impression that I really do like him. I don't want to hurt him because he's a nice guy, but I just want to be friends. Help me?
Let me rephrase this because its not what i meant. What i mean by friendzone is i want to stay friends with this guy. I NEVER had the intention of having my attraction towards him fade. My feelings when i was flirting with him were genuine, i was able to see myself dating him. But things change. Feelings change, like mine did. If that makes me a jerk then fine. I don't care. All i wanted was some help. Some f****** advice!!! So if all you want to do is insult me then don't even bother.
FLIRTING is okay! Don't think what you did was wrong. This happens. And yes to be on the opposite end hurts too, but I've had worse done to me.. flirting is innocent. I've had guys date me and sleep with me and then figure out months later they aren't interested. This is nothing compared to that.
Flirting is okay and sometimes it helps us figure out how we feel about someone. and flirting is fun and sometimes means absolutely nothing.
just start talking to him like a friend and stop flirting with him. when he starts to flirt, just write "LOL" and change the subject. If he asks you what's up just be like "nothing's wrong". if he presses you, then you can be honest, but depending on how much he likes you, you might lose a friend, either permanently or temporarily. This has happened to me before. Where someone disappears for a few months then they get over it and you can be friends again. Some people disappear forever. And some people just like flirting too and never really liked you much to begin with. So you can just tell him that you really like him as a friend and you only want friendship and you're not really into the flirting thing anymore.
Don't make it dramatic, and don't make it a big deal. Just be honest.
At least you are being honest and considering his feelings. most people don't. you're not a bad person.
Just tell him you're not into him. Simple as that. Don't string him along if you're not interested, especially since you were flirting and leading him on before hand. That's a really shitty thing to do and you're a jerk.
