1.Keep It Super Simple
"Thanks, I'm flattered but not interested/available."

2.You Don't Own Them An Explanation
better tell them directly you're not interested and don't have to get into it any more than that. It's not harsh, it's just direct. Rejection sucks no matter how much you sugar coated so you may as well be clear.

"No thank you, I'm not interested."

3.Keep Things General
don’t quote personal traits as reasons for rejection. it is seen as a personal attack. you can suggest that you are incompatible instead.

4.Be As Clear As Possible
I think this line works, saves face for everyone, is super clear, and gets the message across
"I'm sorry, I just didn't feel a connection."

5.Tell Them You're Not Interested

"Sorry, not interested."

It is best to be as honest and blunt as possible.

6.Accept The Fact That You're Going To Hurt Them
The more you sugar coat it, the longer it will hurt him. Get straight with your intention to speak with him and leave him with a positive note. That's all you can do. What he does next is up to him and him only.

7.Just Simply Say "No."

"No thank you."

You don't need to explain yourself. You don't need to defend yourself.

8.Go With The Golden Rule And Treat Them The Way You'd Like To Be Treated

Maybe just reject them the way you'd prefer to be rejected when you're doing the asking, Golden Rule-style.
