If you don’t have feelings for him then just be frank to him and don’t try to give me false hopes like ‘I will think about’. If you don’t feel anything then it’s better to directly reveal this to him. And he will also appreciate this later.

2. Say Thank you

If you already know the guy who asked you out and if you two are friends then don’t let these affect your friendship till that person asks for some time. Don’t forget that he was your friend before all this.

6. Don’t make excuses

Don’t keep on saying things that we don’t know each other well or I just joined a new job and I don’t have time for this instead of I’m not interested. So, it’s better to stop making excuses and clarify everything one’s for all.
