HomeRomantic Relationship QuestionsHow to reject someone without hurting their feelings?
Rila Thomas Staff asked 2 months ago

I've been on a few dates with this guy, but I'm not interested in him romantically. He seems like a really nice guy and I don't want to hurt his feelings, but I also don't want to lead him on.

There's no easy way to do this, but you just have to be honest. Tell him that you appreciate his time and effort, but you don't feel the same way about him. Be as kind and gentle as possible, but make it clear that there's no future for the two of you. He might be hurt at first, but he'll eventually get over it and move on.
