Dealing with an unwanted crush is a dilemma that just about everyone has to figure out in their lifetime.

In this common scenario, someone is crushing on you but you don’t share his feelings.

If you are facing this problem in your life, I’m going to share some good ways of dealing with an unwanted crush.

1. Acknowledge His Feelings

One of the first things to do when dealing with an unwanted crush is to acknowledge the other person’s feelings.

If he tells you he likes you, have a bit of compassion for the guy and be polite.

Tell him that you are flattered that he thinks so fondly of you and give him a general compliment such as you think he’s a great guy.2

The compliment will lessen the blow of rejection that you are about to deliver.

2. Share Your Feelings

Make your feelings about the whole situation known to him.

Let him know that you don’t share the same romantic feelings that he has for you.

If he’s a casual acquaintance that you don’t see much, you could tell him you have a boyfriend or aren't interested in dating anyone.

If it’s a co-worker, tell him that you don’t want to jeopardize your job in any way and that you aren't comfortable dating someone you work with.

3. Unwanted Crush is a Good Friend

When a good friend starts crushing on you, you might feel very awkward whenever you are in his presence.

Even if you don’t want to hurt your friend, its important that he understands that you value your friendship but aren't interested in anything more.

It’s going to hurt him when you reject him, but its better than leading him on.

Once he knows the truth about your feelings toward him, he can move on.
