The tweets just keep on coming! According to UsMagazine.comsinger Aaron Carter recently tweeted his romantic feelings about starlet Hilary Duff publicly. The former child television star responded to the fanciful tweets during a BuzzFeed interview saying, “He does, I keep seeing that, that he keeps doing that. I don’t know how I feel. I mean, that was so long ago, and obviously I’m still married, and I have a baby and we kind of just… don’t know each other. So, yeah…” Duff is married, but recently separated from Mike Comrie,  the father of their 2-year-old son.  Duff talked about her relationship with the former NHL center, saying, “I mean, if there wasn’t a chance for getting back [together], I think we would’ve filed for divorce.” The two exes have been spotted spending time together since the split. 

What are some ways to nicely turn down someone who is interested in you?

Cupid’s Advice:

It is indescribably hard to have your heart broken, but being tasked to break someone else’s heart can be just as tough.  If the feelings are not there and it isn’t the right time, you have to let the interested party know where they stand. But never fear, Cupid is here to help keep both hearts intact:

1. Be honest: Lying about the reason for your disinterest may be a temporary solution, but if and when they realize you have made up a falsity to let them down easy, you will be right back where you started. Be truthful with this person, but not too blunt.

2. Be kind: This person has shared their feelings for you, they are in a vulnerable situation and they were brave to have come forward. Make sure you treat them with the respect and sweetness you would hope to get if you were the one putting your love on the line.

3. Be positive: It can be easily cliché,  but if you want to be friends, tell them. Try to remain polite even if they are taking the rejection poorly. You knew the outcome going into this situation and they did not, so do your personal best to resolve things as peacefully as possible.
