Reply To: How to get out?
Here’s my suggestion. Do it as soon as possible. Let her know it is final. Tell her you think you want to be friends but that neither of you should make any promises. Tell her it’s probably better if the two of you don’t talk for a while.
When you see her in class, just wave hi to her. Don’t talk to her but don’t totally ignore her.
There’s an old saying, it’s cruel to be kind. In these situations, that is 100% true.
