How do you tell someone your not interested in them without hurting their feelings?

There is this guy that goes out of his way to talk to me, I like him as a friend but nothing more. I feel bad because I dont want to hurt him, he is really sweet. How can I let him down easy and still be his friend?

Be polite, but not overly indulgent. Guys get over things fast. Just let him know you are not interested like that and would like to keep it as friendly as possible. Hope it works out.

Say "I don't want to hurt your feelings, but, I'm not interested". You can't control someone else's reactions.
