Why does everyone think we're a couple? Watch
One of my friends even told me that almost everyone in my science class thinks that we like each other.
Just ignore it, the novelty will wear off and they'll stop soon enough.
Sorry for the horrible grammar

It will die down soon, as the constant responses of 'no' will strike into their heads.
It happens. One of my best friends is a guy that I work with and pretty much everyone thinks we're a couple. Even the manager pulled us aside and gave us some weird blessing type speech as if he was bestowing us permission to date one another.
I was head girl and me and the head boy were really good friends and our head of year would move us to sit next to each other in our class and constantly make jokes about us going out. It was quite embarrassing tbh as I could never imagine anything like that, it was purely platonic.

One thing I would say, is make sure that the guy doesn't want the friendship to be anything more before you start going on about how you don't want a relationship with him. Both the guys I was friends with turned out to have been madly in love with me and I'd spent years telling everyone who would listen that I wouldn't date them if they were the last human on Earth. Ouch...
A few weeks later he told me he had feelings for me. :P
Maybe make sure your friend isn't reading more into your friendship? Other people might see a chemistry, even if just on his side, that you can't see.
One of my best friends is a guy but I've never ever had anyone think we're a couple.
I've been really good friends with a guy I've met from a comics group for the last six months. We get on really well and can talk about all sorts of things. The problem is, everyone seems to think we're a couple. It started out as a bit of a joke with one of the other guys at the group saying we'd make a good couple. Since then, a lot of other people seemed to mistaken us for a couple and both our parents have been asking whether or not we're a couple repeatedly, despite us both answering no. I wouldn't mind except for the fact there's this assumption that my best friend can't be a boy and there has to be something else there. Why can't I have long talks with him about random stuff that goes on for three hours? Why does that have to be some other element there? Has anyone else had this problem, and if so, how have they coped with it?
Don't be upset by the idea. Yes, people of opposite genders can share platonic friendships, but they are more likely to develop feelings for one another than people you've been talking to for 'dating' purposes.
Don't fight it; think about it honestly and ask yourself: how do you feel about him?
My two best friends at secondary school were boys ..... I'd spent years telling everyone who would listen that I wouldn't date them if they were the last human on Earth. Ouch...
OP, just ignore what people say or laugh it off. I take things lightly so it wasn't an issue for me. Everyone is just curious and likes gossip. It will soon become old news.
I don't think it's really a problem, but people will generally assume if you are hanging out with someone of the opposite gender that you are a couple.
