Most Helpful Guy
Hopefully its a stranger and I would just say I had a girlfriend (if I were single). That's one of the good things about relationships, its an easy out in that situation. In my younger days I gave out a fake number a few times, but in retrospect that's fucked up. I did bump into this girl who used to work for me, and she was drunk, and pretty confessed having a crush on me. She was like "I would be so good to you, I'd cook for you every day...", more hypothetically, not as a plea, haha, she knows I'm taken. I'm not into her physically, and also she's a lot younger and more like a little sister to me. Her personality is through the roof though. Literally the sweetest kid you'd ever hope to meet. So I told her "you're out of my league, Antonia..." Figured it was the nicest way to handle it.

I personally just politely tell them no because I don't like to play games. I'm not at all interested in leading a guy on to ever thinking I want more than I do. I also personally am not interested in lying to spare feelings, but that doesn't mean I'm outright rude. I'd just say, "I'm sorry, no." or "I'm sorry, I'm not interested".
The way I see it, rejection hurts no matter what words you say. Telling a guy you have a boyfriend (regardless of whether you really have one or not), telling him you like someone else, or telling them flat out no, I am sure that hurts all the same. Some people may take it more personally if there isn't a reason like having a significant other already... but that's not really in my control what they take personally.
