How to convince a girl I don't like her as more than mates? Watch

    I have a mate who I think, feels I like her/have a crush on her.

    What tactics can I use to convince her I don't like her in that way? Of course I could say so, but it's such an awkward topic that I am confident it will make things worse - and this is just a (strong) suspicion.

    I will change my social network profiles to show that I am taken, and ignore her. Anything else?

    Thanks

    1) Tell her that she is like your little sister.

    2) Talk about other girls that you fancy

    Unless you are actually in a relationship don't bother changing your relationship status, that's lying and quite frankly it's also sad. Ignoring her is also unecessarily cold and will cause more harm than good.

    What it would be best to do is tell her friends your concern about her liking you, but you not liking her back as anything more than a friend. If they relay the message to her she is more likely to give up and no bad feelings or huge awkwardness occurs between you.

    You could also try telling her to her face which would be the most efficient method but will also hurt her feelings more than the above and potentially make her avoid you more or even simply ruin your friendship depending on how much she's into you.
