Hello Tango Mango 123 & welcome.

When you say that this person 'likes' you, I assume you mean in as romantic manner as opposed to a friendly manner?
And when you say that you 'don't like' them, I presume you mean that you do like him or her, but only as a friend and not in a romantic way?

I think that you just have to be honest and say that you value the friendship but don't want a romantic attachment ~ and actually say that you don't want this to have a bad effect on the friendship.

However, it might be hard dealing with this for both of you.

Judging from other posts, this sort of thing happens quite a bit.

Good luck! smile

It's quite simple:

Say: "I'm sorry but I'm not interested in you in that sort of way. And I'm really sorry if that hurts your feelings, bu tI'd love to remain friends with you because I feel our friendship shouldn't be put in jeopardy."

Love doesn't make the world go 'round; love is what makes the ride worthwhile.
