Is there a proper way to turn down someone without hurting his feelings/pride?

On several occasions, we encountered people who responded to our profile who isn't our cup of tea. So, is there a proper way to turn down someone's invitation without hurting his feelings/ pride? Or do I just ignore them?

Just be honest & say your not interested in them in that way.

So I guess it's better to tell them the truth, rather than keep them hanging and expecting nothing...

you may also give reasons if there are any why you are rejecting him so he may improve himself..

I agree with naughtyme and if they bug you afterwards, block their ass.

It's all a matter of natural selection. I personally don't think any explanation at all is necessary if someone doesn't interest you. If they have any degree of maturity at all, they'll just move on.

I think it's only fair to reply to a post or invitation, but you don't have to go into any detail unless you want to. If they can't accept that and get nasty, then you know you made the right choice.
