How can I still be friends with someone after I rejected them?

Anonymous
So many times in my life, my guy friends have started to like me. It sucks because whenever I turn them down it seems to ruin the friendship, and I hate it. Why can’t I just be friends with someone after I turn them down? I miss my friend already, he says he’ll try not to make things different but they already feel different. Is it ever possible to remain fully the same after rejecting someone? Or is it going to feel like there is tensions forever, this is absolutely killing me.
