Guys or girls what do you do when someone likes you but you want to politely let them know your gonna friend zone them?

I think that you have to make things clear. You don't want to leave room for too much hope because hope can fuel denial of the reality of the situation and it can leave the person hanging on. Unrequited feelings can cause people to lose control of their shit and the longer it goes on the worse it can be. It's better to nip it in the bud early with a compassionate but clear message. Let them know that you don't feel the same way, then create a little bit of space between the two of you for a time.0

See the thing about that is, that a lot of times the person getting friend zoned doesn't make their intent clear. So if they never SAY "hey i like you" or ask you out, how do you reject them? If a guy is being nice and friendly to you, wouldn't you be being presumptuous by being like "Hey I don't like you like that"?
Guys complain about getting pre-rejected by women (aka GUY: Hey do you come here often? GIRL: I have a boyfriend GUY: bitch please you ain't all that, I'm just trying to be nice)... but then expect you to tell him you don't like him when he tries to be your friend?
I'm sorry but I'm not gonna pre-reject someone until they give me something to reject. Ask me out? I'll say no. Ask me to come over at 11pm? I'll say no. But you just acting like my friend? I'm supposed to tell you, no dont do that because I'm not into you? makes no sense0
