Currently I’m out dating and I enjoy it. I work full time and go to school full time. My schedule is super busy so at the moment I’m not looking for a committed relationship. How do I tell a guy that I really like I can’t offer him a relationship without ruining what we have?

Say exactly that.
"I really like you, but I'm so busy right now that I can't really give a serious relationship the time/attention it deserves." maybe keep it casual until you can!
It might hurt him, but less than any other way you might try to phrase it, because if he is or ever was busy too he will understand.0

I'm in the *exact* same situation. The bad thing about it is that guys will fall for you and develop feelings that are more than what you can reciprocate. I honestly feel bad when this happens, but what can you do but be honest with him?
I'm like you, just not ready or interested in settling down with one guy. So I tell guys that early in the flirting, just so they know what I'm doing. At this point, tell him you really like him and want to keep seeing him but don't want a full-on relationship. Compliment him genuinely so he knows you're not just brushing him off... that always works well for me. If he's cool with it, great. Most guys have been willing to go along without a commitment. Good luck :)0
