When a girl rejects you, why ask the reason if you can’t take it? Would you prefer her to lie to conserve your feelings?

So a guy asked me out last night who is definitely not my type. He was very persistent, not pushy but persistent in a good way - which is great unless he asks why and when I tell him why he’s not my type then all of a sudden I should’ve been nicer. I didn’t say it offensively.

Guys say they want you to be honest, but they also say that you shouldn’t hurt someone’s feelings. I mean, it’s one way or the other when you point out why he’s not your type and all of a sudden his feelings get hurt. I get that some guys like this have ego issues (part of why he is not my type), but which way is it? Honesty or feelings?
Be kind but honest with me. I can take it.
