Why do some guys think I’ll be mad at them once they tell me they like me?

I had a few guys that a met a while ago message me saying they have liked me for a long time and so on but at the end they say something like “please don’t be mad at me” or “sorry if this makes you angry” and I’m thinking “why would I be angry? should I be angry?” I actually get flattered when someone says they like me even if I don’t feel the same way.

I never understood why someone would get mad just because someone liked them.

I was not harsh when it came to rejecting. I just politely said I’m not interested but I am flattered by their honesty.
