how to avoid awkward situation with guy from society

i went on several "dates" with a guy from my society, i think he's into to me but i'm not. idk i thought we were hanging out as friends but apparently not. frankly it makes me feel uncomfortable so i don't wanna go out for dinner/drinks with him anymore but i can't just air all of his messages, and i've run out of excuses why i "can't make it on the Xth night sorry!". also complicated that we're at the same society and i do still wanna go to events...what should i do, or say when i see him next time? (soon hahaha...) we have no mutual friends just mutual acquaintances.
Tell him you don’t want to hang one-on-one anymore as you sense that he wants it to go in a romantic direction and you’re not after that.

If you don’t draw a line under it, it’ll always be awkward and he’ll be hanging on indefinitely.

You have to be cruel to be kind and tell him clearly you don’t want to see him anymore
