Telling him you don't like him (in a nice way)

Why is it always this way? The person who likes you is sooooooooooo rarely the one who you are crushing on. And then you're stuck with the awkward job of telling him or not telling him. Madeleine is stuck in that kind of a problem:

Dear PLS,
I have a boy in my class that really likes me.I really don't like him, and I don't know how to tell him I don't like him and I don't know how to get him to stop bugging me.
Madeleine, 11

I think Madeleine should try to be as kind as possible. But it's tricky because if you're nice - even in a normal, friendly way - the guy might take that as a sign that you DO like him back. The #1 rule is not to embarrass the guy or make fun of him or do anything that will make him feel bad. Imagine if it were you.

KidsHealth.org suggests being honest, but not being mean. Try including a small compliment, if you talk to the guy in person or send him a text. Example: "I think you're a great basketball player and a nice person, but I like you as a friend, not a boyfriend. I hope you're OK with that."

What else, Pink Locker girls? Has this ever happened to you?

Think pink!

What Jemma said is a great suggestion, "youre an awesome person, but i only like you as a friend" yes this has happened to me, one time the class clown told me he loved me in the library. I just said i didnt love him, and that was the end of that. (thinking back, i cant believe i was so insensetive!) then there was this boy that was rumoured to have a crush on me, and definately did, he always did everything for me and was shy around me and when his bff wrote a letter that said this boy liked me, he seemed to hope i liked him back. Unfortunately, i didnt start noticing boys until i was 13, before that they were just people lol.

Me and my guy friend text ALOT and yesterday he asked who I liked and I told him I liked him and he said he likes me back. So we both kinda like eachother! He's so cute and nice and funny. But were not dating.

I TOTALLY agree with Jemma, but if he starts to make you feel uncomfortable, (like he tries to kiss you or touches you were he shouldn't) tell a trusted adult or teacher!!! Tell him calmly, like "hey, I don't like that" or "please stop!" Then tell him what his strenghts are, and tell him you don't like him.

I think Jemma's suggestion is great, and I agree. An etra boost would be to act like a friend, but not too close of a friend. Be friendly, say hi, that sort of stuff. So when he trusts you, pull him over and tell him what Jemma said. Add at the end, "I really hope we can still be friends."

Dear PLS,
I'm really confused. I have a friend that's in half of my classes, and I like him. Well, I think I do. I'm not sure if I like him or not. How do I know for sure if I like-like him, or just like him as a friend?

I totally agree with Jemma. Say you don't like him back, but in a nice way. If he becomes sad about it, just tell him this: "Don't be sad. You're a great person and all, and you're really good at_____ (there you put what he's good at) You find someone better for you, I know it. Hope that works!

I know EXACTLY how it feel because it is happening to me now. The guy who likes me is considered a "nerd" in my grade. I have been practicing what to say to him in the mirror. Just ignore him. If he REALLY gets romantic,(he got me a Valentines necklace and i never wear it even though its totes adorbs because he may think I like him back), kindly tell him that you don't like him. I hope my advice works!

I have that same problem! Try getting to know him better. You don't have to get too serious (if you want to date), I mean it's not like you're gonna get married! And maybe you realize after a while you don't like him that much. May be you just like him as a friend.

Hey girls! I have a question. I'm just kinda confused about this. Is it bad to think that I have more of a friend in a guy than my friends who are girls? Ok so firstly, I feel like he understands me better. I was entering this art contest, and I told some of my friends (including him) about it and they just said oh cool, but he asked more about it and even now he still asks me if I've entered yet. Also, on my birthday, none of my friends remembered even though I had said it the day before. But my guy friend did! He sent me a birthday email and said happy birthday at school. Don't get me wrong though, my gal pals are awesome! I love hanging out with them they are SO much fun, But I feel like in the 4-10 years that I've known them, They still don't know as much about me as my guy friend does whom I've been friends with for like 1 year and a half. I'm just feeling guilty. Is it ok to feel this way?

@ Cutiecake123:
No, it's not bad to have better guy friends than girl friends. I think it's great. its always good to have more friends, especially ones you know you can count on! Although you might want to talk about it with your friends, like mention it when your all hanging out together and see if they dont feel left out. If they start treating you differently or leaving you out though, you should take that as a hint that might be feeling that you are ignoring them.

So, my friend and I like the same boy and her other friend told me that he has a girlfriend. I asked her how she knew and she said "facebook", so I said "you're friends with him on facebook"? She said no Sydney is (my friend who likes the same boy). How do I know if she was telling the truth or just getting me out of the way so Sydney could have him? He has been flirting with me lately and Sydney won't talk to me. I would think she would tell me that they were friends on facebook. What if he's just messing with my emotions?

I think you should tell him the truth as nicely as possible. If you don't want to then if he keeps bugging you just tell him that your not really interested REALLY NICELY. If he doesn't accept that, then wait till the future maybe you could ignore him (in a nice way) and maybe he'll move on to someone else

Hi guys. So sorry this is off topic, but I've decided I'm going to lose weight. And don't worry, not one of those crash diets! But I've been overweight since I was about... 6 years old! And by now I don't mean a little overweight! I mean a whole 70 lbs heavier than I should be! So my mom and I are doing this together, and we've decided on weight watchers, and we're pairing it with daily exercise. Any healthy snacks/ recipes? It would be really, really helpful!

For awesomeness
I think u should work it out with ur friend because if one of u endsups getting mad mad at the other one, then u guys might fight and no longer be friends. To avoid that, if u have a facebook go on his page and see if he really said that he has a girlfriend. If he didnt, dont tell ur friend right away that u foundout cuz she might think u didnt believe her. Then just talk to him as much as possible. If he asks u out and ur friend asks why r u flirting with him if he has a girl friend, just say he said he didnt have one because he wouldnt ask u out if he has a girlfriend.
Hope this helps

@cutiecake

Try and swap salty, sugary junk food for healthier alternatives such as:

instead of eating chips try carrot sticks dipped in hummus or celery with a little peanut butter

instead of eating lollies, make a healthy trail mix with unsalted nuts and dried fruit

You can find lots of healthy recipes online - try and keep your portion sizes small. Maybe you could try going vegetarian?

Remember to exercise and eat healthy and take it slow. Good Luck!

Thanks 4 the advice. I just hope my friend will listen to me... her sis will so maybe I'll talk to her. But the guy we both like knows that my friend likes him and avoids her. Should I somehow let him know that I like him without, like telling him 2 his face? 'Cause if I don't I'm afraid that there will be no progress in the relationship. I mean, yeah my friend likes him but she has so many other choices since she goes 2 public school & I'm homeschooled. I mean he is my only option. (We go 2 church with him). This is the most boring year ever... no public school, no locker, no cute boys to see everyday, no REAL friends. My school work is already done until January. Well sorry 4 getting off topic.

I would just tell him as nicely as possible that you don't like him. If it's easier maybe you should do it in a note or confront him when there's nobody around so as not to embarriss him or yourself.

I had a boy like me before, who I really didn't like. He was really agressive and we didn't have anything in common. Also, he is 16 and I'm 12. I don't even know why he liked me! I think it was because people are mean to him and I was nice to him. Anyways, heres what I said to him.
Hey Ben, I know that you like me, but I'm just not interested. You are really funny and cool, but I don't really think we're compatible and my parents don't want me dating boys a lot older than me. I'm really sorry, but I'm just not interested.
Hope it helped!

First of all, you shouldn't even have or think about having a boyfriend at 11. just say I'm sorry, and tell him the reasons why. Your way to young to have a boyfriend.

This has totally been happening to me. There's a boy who likes me, lets call him... Sora! Okay, Sora likes me, and I don't like him back. AT ALL. In the beginning of the year, I started talking to him. He's a gamer. Gamer with a capital G. He loves playing Minecraft, Terraria etc.! I like playing games too, but definitely not as much as him. I usually watch gamers on YouTube instead of playing actual games. Anyway, I think he took it the wrong way and started liking me. He's already confessed. A lot. He's even bought me a few things. He's very awkward in general, and kinda clingy. It's getting a little annoying, but at the same time, I feel bad for him. I've already turned him down, AND I felt SUPER bad about it, but really, could you blame me? I dunno what to do, but he's at least being less nervous around me.
I'm 11 years old, and I don't think kids our age should be dating, but then again, that's my opinion. Anywho~ I already have a sprouting crush, and I don't know what to do! Help! I'm caught between two boys!
"To be, or not to be? That is the question."

Love ^-^

this happens all the time.I think a way to resolve this is to just ignore him and if jhe asks you out say that you really like him as a freind and maybe that you guys can be freinds for now offer him a hangout with a couple of other people or just talk to him but dont get all lovey dovey with him because that will confuse him and he may think that you have started to like him back.Well good luck and i hope this matter is now resolved

For me it's the other way round. This boy in my class is in Y6 so I'll never see him again after the summer holidays, and he's rude to me and I get teased, but I can't stay away from him!What should I do?

Look I have the same problem. I've led him on but I like someone else but the only reason I led him on was because I didn't want to hurt him. Please help
