Honesty is Key

Well, being honest is one of the best ways to tell a guy you’re not interested. It might hurt him but at least both of you will have saved some time that might have been wasted if you hadn’t been honest. The last thing you want to do is lead him on.


Get Busy

If step one fails, don’t give him the chance to ask you out. Get busy. Fill up your schedule, that way if he does ask you out, you’d still be telling him the truth when you say you’re busy. Go out with your girls, or join a class... or why not join a class with the girls? This way you’ll be active yourself and you wouldn’t have to lie about it either.


Avoid Flirting

Sometimes even if we’re not interested "that way," we get tempted to flirt. You might think its harmless flirting but to him it might give him the idea that you’re interested... which you are not. No matter how tempting, harmless flirting is a must to avoid. If you wouldn’t want to be led on like that, so should you avoid doing the same to another person.


Hook Him up with a Friend

Hey, maybe you and him might not have the same interests but maybe someone you know might... a friend! This will OBVIOUSLY tell him you’re not interested, but it might not hurt him as much because he’ll be busy with someone who is.


Slowly Avoid Contact

Try to avoid contact - not all at once but slowly, step by step. The more the contact, the more he may think you like him. If he doesn’t see you he might lose interest. After all, you want to see the person you like.


Friend Zone

Maybe he’s not your type as a boyfriend, but maybe he’s your type as a guy friend. Make sure it is obvious that he is in the friend zone. Don’t be rude about it but gently show him that you like him only as a friend.


Ignorance is Bliss

If all else fails, you could always ignore him. Eventually he’ll get it and lose interest. Block him off any social networks and avoid eye contact if you see him. Just ignore. Trust me, it works. It's not the nicest way to go about it, but if he's not responding to any of these other ideas, then this might be all you have left to try!

You don’t want to hurt a guy’s feelings when you tell him you aren’t interested, and that isn’t always an easy thing to avoid. Hopefully these tips help you out and save some time that would have been wasted. If you've ever had to tell a guy you weren’t interest, tell me how it went? Do you have any other tips, advice, or ideas to share?

If only I'd read this earlier..

It's always best to be honest and just tell him. Even if it's a text, at least he knows where he stands.

Didn't mean to cry... Lol

Honesty is the best policy. Just break it to him nicely & gently so that he can walk away with dignity intact.

Meant to go on another one sorry

I been seeing this guy on and off for about a year. Part of me thinks he likes me. But I am not really sure. I know that he is not just in it for the sex because we hang out watch movies and talk about our childhood and our high school life. But it just seems like he only wants to be friends. When we are together things are really good. But when we are apart its like we are a million miles apart and sometimes it will be days or weeks before I hear from him again. I am at the point where I am just losing interest in him.

What if your too shy to tell him?

Hope it works cuz I hate that dud that likes mi
