So there’s this guy at my college, and we participate in an extracurricular together. He’s a Christian, nice, and fun to be around. I enjoy spending time with him. I really can’t see myself being in a serious relationship with him though. I’m concerned that he might like me. How do I let him know that I just see him as a friend?

You could go for the subtle friend-zoning or brother-zoning. I’m not really one for game playing and am usually just straight forward with people, but that’s my personality and I don’t mind the awkward situations that sometimes come from that.
I’ve used it before, though, on several occasions. I go to a university with a 3:1 guy/girl ratio, and a lot of the guys have a hard time separating me being friendly from me interested. A simple “I’m so glad I have such a great friend like you! You’re like a brother to me!” would probably suffice. Or you could go a step further and say something like “If I could pick a brother I would definitely pick you!”
It may sound weird or underhanded, but it’s an easy out without having to tell him that you don’t like him. I hope this helps! 🙂

Dang, what college do you go to where there’s a 3:1 guy/girl ratio? 🙂

Vanilla, I go to Michigan Technological University. We have a saying where we’re from, though: The odds are good but the goods are odd! 😛
