Keep hinting...like say. "I'm so happy you're such a great friend!" or "you're the BGF ever!" sort if try to ignore it. If he still persist, just tell him how you feel. :D

i mean you kinda just gotta tell him.. you dont want to not tell him and he have hopes that one day you guys will date even though you know it will never happen.

tell him the truth, just tell him that you just want to be friends, don't give him any hope in anything else, because he'll think you're giving him a chance, it will be hard for him, but it'd be better than to leave it like that, and hurt him even more later :) good luck!):)

you should tell him that you really like him- but as a friend! if he truly cares, he will understand.

You need to help him find somebody else if your really trying to avoid hurting him, then you can still be best friends and he can have a girl.
