Advice for little sister (HELP!!)

Ok so my sister decided to start seeing one of our GM and they hit it off great and they have been seeing each other only about 2 weeks now.  Well he really likes her and she thinks he's a great guy.  She said that when they kiss though that nothing is there.  She doesn't think this could go anywhere more than friendship now since she just doesn't feel it but she needs to know how to gently tell him.  They see each other all the time, will be in the wedding together and we are all suppose to go camping next weekend.  Well she doesn't want to hurt his feelings but she doesn't want to lead him on any longer.  I don't know what to tell her so that things won't be awkward.  Any advice??  TIA

    How old is your sister?

    I think she should just be honest.   Making excuses or lies will just cause more awkwardness.

    She should just let him know that she really just wants to be friends, but maybe she would be honored if he would be her date your wedding or something?

    She's 25.  I told her to be honest too.  We just don't want any awkwardness.  She is a flight attendant so she is flying this week and she will see him for the first time again on Saturday night at our house.  She is just worried he will make it awkward or a big deal if she tells him before or that he will act like they are together in front of everyone if she waits.  She's just a little lost right now but we both agree honest is the best!

    Just have an open coversation with him. It's a pretty common thing, people start dating and don't hit it off all the time.

    It's only been 2 weeks, he can't be that gaga about her yet.

    I would just have her say something like:  "Hey GM, I really think you're a great guy but I just don't feel like we have any chemistry. Instead of wasting your time and mine, I think it's better we just stay friends. You deserve a girl who is crazy about you"

    Something like that. There's no reason after only "dating" for 2 weeks, they can't make this civil and remain friends!
