When someone asks you out, you feel wanted, loved, and desired. For you, it might just look like the first step, but in their head, they are already riding high on the feelings they fantasize you feel for them. For all you know, they have even spun a fairytale starring the two of you. You could be a big part of someone else’s life, and you might not even know it. But when they make it evident to you, and start small by asking you out on a date, and you don’t feel the same way, you need to turn them down nicely, without hurting their feelings.
