Hi I need help in writing a personal letter.. I need to send it to him before it gets too serious..

Dear
I want to apologize for not accepting your invitations to hang out.
The reason why I've being avoiding your invitations is because
I'm against going out with a friends ex-boyfriend..
You might think that I've lead you along but thats not true because
I really like you and thought I might get over that issue, but I'm afraid its not that easy.

I hope you can find it in your heart to forgive me
and I really hope we could still be friends..

I made it grammatically correct and took out unncessary words.
thanks ytsirk, for your help..
