  • Depending on why you feel reluctant to go out with him....i would cancel before even going. You don't say what sort of vibe you are getting, but we as women don't listen to our gut/intuition nearly enough.

  • while you are with him. just be honest. dont be mean but tell him you just dont see it going anywhere.

  • I usually go for brunch on a first date, not dinner. Its just less formal and if you dont feel comfortable you can say you have a previous engagement to go to and get out of the date a lot faster then committing to the whole Saturday evening situation. If you dont connect your not responsible for a long drawn out follow up with him, if you dont connect, you dont connect. If he asks for another date and your not that into him, dont commit to another date...

  • Well, going for an Italian ice is shorter than even brunch so that's good if you get a weird vibe; you won't be with him too long. Perhaps during conversation, casually let him know that you don't think you're compatible or you're not looking for anything further. You'll have to word it based on how you think he'll take it though. Best wishes.

  • Just be honest with him. The sooner the better. The longer you wait, the more obsessed he will become and you certainly don't want that. Just be careful how you say it. Be nice, but be firm, not leaving room for any doubt.

  • if you are worried about him becoming obsessed, then you have to be blunt. no beating around the bush at all. it may be difficult, and may seem harsh, but it is the only way. if you leave them with one bit of hope, they will cling to that...and not really hear what you are saying.
