    So when somebody tells you they love you and you don't want to say it back yet what do you say? I've been told you should say "thanks" but that feels a bit like your brushing them off or acting as if they have just done you a favor. So what do you say?

    I agree that 'thanks' makes it seem more like you're accepting a compliment than acknowledging what they're actually saying to you.

    I tend to say "right back at ya" but never thought it was a good idea. At the same time I feel like I should explain why but can't. If that makes sense?

    Just be honest if you need more time then say you need more time to think about it. If you don't like them then just say that and say would you still want to be friends.
