I have a close guy friend who I've known forever. Just a few days ago he asked me out, and I had no idea what to say.
I don't like him like that - I like him as a brother. I told him to give me a few days to think about it, but I already know my answer.
What do I tell him?
A: I'm sorry, but I don't think there is a completely easy way to tell him this. Try starting your sentence with "I'm really sorry, but..." or "You're a really nice guy, however..."
It's always good to be honest about why you don't want to be with him, so don't go saying anything like "I'm just not ready for a relationship yet." because he might hang on waiting for you to become ready (I'm sure you wouldn't go saying anything like that though xxx)
If you really value this guy's friendship, make sure you tell him :) Things may be awkward between you for a little bit, but try to let him know that you hope things can be okay between you guys.
Best of luck,
