    This guy asked me out on a date and I'm just not that into him. Problem is he didn't explicitly say 'date' so I know if I tell him the truth why I don't want to go, he'll just pretend he only wants to be friends and I'll seem like a narcissist and I won't be able to get out of it. What can I say to shut down any further advances without hurting his feelings?

    If you sense he's keeno then you ought to pre-emptively nip it in the bud e.g. "this is a friends thing, right?" :gah:

    Go, but tell him you are just going out together as friends. Or, bring along another friend with you. And pay for your own food. That way, he will know it is not a date to you.
