SO when I meet my friends guy friends they sometimes hit on me and sometimes we exchange numbers. I don't flirt from the start if I am not in to them, but I do talk to them just like I would talk to my friends. So when they text how do I make it a point that I am not in to them? like short answers? but than that's rude, when they flirt over text I have no answer to their flirt so its rude if I don't answer, and I don't want to flat out say hey I am not interested stop texting me b.c. I will be going out again and they will most likely be there

as long as a gir isn't a total bitch about it then it doesn't bother me to much. I knew a girl that was a close friend of mine, and I finally told her that I had feelings for her and thought we should give it a try. she turned me down, but she ended our friendship. wouldn't see or speak to me ever again. and I didn't do anything wrong. so girls that act like that about it can kiss my ass.
but to answer your question just be subtle about it. something along the lines of " look you're my friend so I can be honest with you. I've never felt that way about you. sure, you're cute and all, you have a lot of good qualities. and I don't wanna hurt your feelings , but understand that your feelings are one sided. I won't let this effect our friendship, and I hope you don't either". just anything to let him down easy ya know. trust me, it makes it a lot easier for the guy if you don't let it make either of you feel akward. most guys would much rather have the girl as a friend than to not have them in their life at all. that's just my opinion. but I typically fall for the girls that I was friends with first, not some random bar girl that just says "p*ss off loser !". ya know. so every guy is different but it never hurts to be gentle about letting him down. that's my opinion. not sure if most guys would agree with me, but I hope I was able to help. best of luck : )0
