Ask AJ: How Do I Let Him Down Easy?
A listener is looking for advice...
"There's a guy at work who keeps asking me out. He's not my type, so it's an awkward situation. How do I let him down easy?"
Well, I can speak from experience here... I've been told very abruptly, and I've also had to sort of figure out on my own that it wasn't going anywhere. Either way, it's no fun when you find out someone just isn't interested in you anymore.
So don't worry so much about him... Put yourself first. If you're not interested, why torture yourself? Just be upfront about it.
And because the two of you work together, there's your out! Just tell him that you don't think it would be a good idea for you to get into a relationship with someone you work with. It's as easy as that!
