You are to be commended for being one of the good guys and actually are very considerate of this girls feelings. Thanks!
You always have to be true to yourself and obviously you aren't ready for a committment at this time. Go for a leisurely walk somewhere and tell her the truth. Here is something to start out with:
"I think the world of you, but I'm just not ready to settle down to a one-on-one relationship yet. I have hopes and dreams I want to accomplish and I'm just not ready to commit to anyone. I wanted to tell you because I respect you."
There is absolutely no way you can tell this young woman any other way and not hurt her feelings, but she will get over it. Perhaps when you aren't around each other so much you may even find you actually miss her.
when you are both ready
When you think that the relationship might go somewhere someday.
It might not be legal, and could be classed as rape, but if you think you are ready and make sure its safe, its up to you
Usually a girl
If you like her that much, then wait until she is ready for a relationship.
As you are a nice man looking for a nice girl for a serious relationship, you must find one in a pub or bar and then go steady with her.
it means that their not really ready for that kind of responsibility and that type of relationship.
Just tell her directly. I have tried it once with a girl, she said when she was ready, i would be the first one to know. If you like the girl, then just say that she will be the first one to know when you are ready for a relationship. Then if the girl likes you, she would probably say that she will wait for you.
She means she is not ready for a relationship. Somehow she must feel that you are looking for a relationship. She is being real with you, so date and have fun. Keep it light and nothing serious.
Ask her out anyway,if she really likes you she'll break up with the guy for you.
