Most Helpful Guy

  • Letting someone know that you see them as a good friend and would not risk that to see if there was more, often becomes enough to let them down gently, because its not a rejection as such, but its enough to let them know that it won't ever be more than just a friendship,x

What Guys Said 2

  • Honesty really is best. There's no way to say no without hurting her feelings, but there are ways to be gentle about it.

  • Best to tell em straight, blunt, and soon.


What Girls Said 1

  • I think A is the best option. When I just notice someone is into me, I ignore it. Not the person, the flirty things. I don't respond to the flirting and I just act normal. When someone actually tells me he's into me and the feelings aren't mutual, I just tell them I think he's a nice guy but things aren't gonna happen between us.
