    Just be honest. It's going to be awkward for you and painful for him. Like ripping a plaster off, do it quickly. Also have an escape route afterwards if you're doing it face to face, phone, text etc "oh I have to go work now, speak later etc".

    This is a skill for life, saying no to a date request kindly without fostering false hopes. "Thank you for asking but I would rather not.." gets the balance right. There are other softeners like 'too busy' ' not looking for a bf at the moment', 'already have a bf', 'only want to be friends' that are usually, although not always, understood as a polite no. It's nice that you care about someone's feelings. Good luck.

    Shoot him down ruthlessly. If you're too nice about it he might still cling onto the hope that you will change your mind.
