This nice but very awkward guy asks me to get together with him quite often. Only thing is they aren't really dates — we don't go to dinner just to pubs the two of us and I always pay for myself. Thing is — I'm not really friends with him. I barely know the guy and this is going to sound bad, but I'm not really interested in getting to know him. I work long hours and am only here until the end of the summer and want my time after work for myself and the people I do know here.
I get the feeling that he has a crush on me though (woman's intuition) and really don't want to encourage the guy, but have no idea how to put a stop to the dreaded "Want to hang out?" texts. I mean can I just say "not really" or just not reply at all — I feel as if that might be very rude. Has anyone experienced something similar? I feel like such a b*tch for even posting this.
