    OK so last night was my prom night, and after never talking to a guy in my life, a guy from my year bought me a drink and we talked for a while. He said he'd had a crush on my for a while, and I just kind of went with things until at the end of the night he kissed me and I asked for his number because it felt like the right thing to do. He said he'd give it to me on facebook. Only now I haven't been able to sleep due to anxiety because I realise that I don't like him in that way and I'm really not ready for a relationship. I feel really bad because he's a nice guy and I feel like I lead him on because I just got carried away as it all happened so fast. I feel like I need to tell him that it was a mistake and I don't like him but I don't want to hurt his feelings because he was really shy about it. Any help would be greatly appreciated!
    (Also our entire year knows and has been gossiping about it which doesn't help :/ )

    Firstly dont get pressured to go out with him, its your choice

    just tell him honestly, that you're just not ready for a relationship. And you dont like him in that way. Be kind about it, and dont beat around the bush just give him a definitive answer.

    This sort of thing hurts a guys feelings, but it does happen. Just be honest and as gentle as you can.
