QUICK! how do turn someone down gently??

Yipes. i have a problem. See there's this guy in a couple of my classes and he's hinting that we should go out....but i just can't...not with him. i have problems investing emotionally...and i just don't have the time for any kind of relationship. We talk sometimes on AIM...but i'm just not interested....

I would tell him the truth too.

Lying to people just makes you feel guilty, well it always makes me feel bad. I think he would appreciate that more

Seriously ... just tell him you're not really looking to date people right now. There's no shame in that. I know when I was in college there was a time in college where I was dealing with some stuff and between classes and work, I was far too busy for relationships. Honesty is always the best policy.

Just tell him what you told us - you don't feel up to a relationship right now. I had the same kind of thing happen to me once - this guy asked me out when I was having a rough time getting my life in order and the last thing I wanted to do was deal with a relationship. So that's what I told him.

(Actually, I wouldn't have dated that particular guy even if I wanted to be in a relationship and he was the last man on earth, but I didn't tell him that. )

If you tell him the truth, he'll still respect you in the morning.
