I was in his position for like 2 years or so. I was relentless in my attempts to win her over even when I knew that she doesn't like me that way. Anyway, i feel like you care about your friend more than she cared about me so listen to what I tell you now. You either accept him or go, sit down with him somewhere and explain in detail what you feel about him. Make sure to tell him the truth. That you like him but can't settle for him because you don't feel attracted to him. And don't worry, he most likely already knows this and is only giving himself false hope. It will break him but it is what he needs and now when I think about it I wish I got that treatment instead of being dragged on like a moron for years.

He sounds creepy tbh lol. If u dont fancy someone then don't even date them. U dont have to feel bad or make excuses for your feelings. Don't let him guilt trip u by being 'nice'. U like someone or u dont. You aren't doing him any favors by pretending to like him. And u won't magically grow to fancy someone who's very voice annoys u. Its a lesson I wish I learned when I was young - do not date someone u do not fancy. But DO make it clear you don't fancy them. Also don't try to stay Hus friend because trust me, 'sweet' men like him will take that to mean u might change your mind some day and still never leave u alone.
