The wisest man in the bible, King Solomon said, Guard your affections, for out of them come the issues of life.
I see far too many people jumping into relationships and not guarding their affections, only to become confused, disillusioned, and devastated.
Every day, on Facebook, in the comments section, in the forum, in my inbox…day in and day out I hear variations of the same question: Does he like me? It doesn’t come around every day, so when it does you latch on tightly and feel grateful, and at the same time, afraid.
But I also know that love isn’t a magical cure-all and also, love isn’t always enough.
Be gentle It’s bad enough that you’re telling the guy you don’t want to see him anymore, potentially breaking his heart. If your reason for cutting him off is not that he carries himself like a complete jerk, and he really seems to be a nice guy, try to be gentle in your approach.
Perhaps complimenting him about the things you like about him before delivering the blow will help.
Do it sooner than later The longer you wait, the more difficult it will be.
If you’re just not romantically interested in him, say that.
People respect transparency, and they can easily see through bullsh-t.
