What will you do if opposite sex says "I Love You"
If the person to whom you do not love says to you that He/She Loves you , How would you react to this situation without hurting the other person ?
I would definitely not tell them that I love them back. I would make it a point to let them know in the nicest way possible that I don't feel the same way. I would try to get them to understand that, and I probably would limit the amount of contact I had with that person.
There is no avoid hurting someone by telling them you don't feel the same way about them. You have no control over such things. However you do have control over being an honest person or not. I would probably acknowledge to them that:
" I know it took courage for you to tell me this but I have to be honest with you, I don't have that same type of feeling for you.. You deserve to be with someone that wants what you want and feels the same way about you as you do about them."
Afterwards I would probably make myself less available to socialize with them. The reason for this is I would not want to give them "false hope" or hurt them more by talking about others I am dating and so forth. Offering "friendship" to someone you know is "in love" with you is a mistake.
(Maybe after they have found someone else or fallen love) with another person then it might be possible to be casual friends. Even then I would make sure I talk about my significant other from time to time and avoid too much one on one time with them.
I'll say "You Love Who? Me?, nah... you're joking, you're kidding! Stop it now..."
Then I'll look at him straight in the eyes and go like: "You're serious..." He would nod... I'd look the other way, a bit overwhelmed, flattered, and feeling bad all at the same time...
Then I'll take him for some ice cream and I would pretend like I spilled the ice cream on me, excuse myself go home, let him cool down for a few days and then explain myself better in regards to my friendship intentions.
I've been in this situation twice. I was honest about how I felt because I did not want any mixed singles or them thinking I led them on. They were hurt in the end because they did not get the relationship they wanted from me, but they could not blame me for being honest.
