So, there is this overweight guy in my neighborhood who has have a crush on me for few years, which I didn't answered back. He never told me I noticed that, since he never moved along, and I thought he was quite a good friend.
A couple of months ago he suddenly decided to take the great step and confess, so I just said the truth, with the one single phrase "I'm sorry, you're a great guy with a great personality, but I don't find you physically attractive." he started crying and run to his house.
Since that episode, he gained a lot of weight, and I never saw him leaving his place but for going to work. A couple of his colleagues also happen to be my friend, and told me that he went from being the clown of the office to a silent shadow who doesn't speak with anyone no more since then.
I feel super guilty, but anytime I go knocking to his door he refuses to talk with me, what should I do?

I think you being honest was quite fair. He just overreacted. He seems to have extreme issues with self confidence and made the mistake of putting you on a pedestal.1

That was what I called brutally honest and it is needed in some case altho with him , you could used a little more tact.
He is propbably going through a depression. He took a serious hit to his confidence and ego. Try to see if you can apologize. Altho I dont approve of the way it was handled , i also dont believe you must pretend to love someone when you aren't into them.0
