Its a bit awkward because we are all in the same circle of friends.
Most Helpful Guy
Be clear and say it:
it's better to hurt his feelings than to let him hope in vain for a long time.
Hurting now will be over next week, vain hope can last years.
Be honest with him. Tell him that you just see him as a friend and you just don't feel the same. Tell him he is a nice guy and bring his self-esteem up and say that there will be someone else who likes him for who he is. (Kinda even out the "rejection.") You just don't feel the same way.
No matter how you say it either way it is not going to be easy.
Tell him you're flattered that he likes you but that you have an interest in someone else. If he asks you if there's a chance in the future, you can tell him that at this time, you'd just like to focus on your current crush because that person is the only one you are hoping to have a relationship with at this time. Tell him you're not the type of person that wants to mislead someone into thinking there's a chance where there isn't at this time. There's always going to be a bit of pain when you get rejected but this way he won't feel like he was an idiot for thinking there was a chance.
