Feeling guilty for lying to him

I'm single and I became friends with a guy who is related to I was friends with in school. He's a nice guy, but I have no attraction to him what so ever. He kept sending me messages and wanting to go out with me. I didn't want to hurt his feelings, so I lied and told him that I'm in a relationship now. He was starting to get on my nerves a little bit and I know he didn't mean to. But I can't help that I just wasn't interested in him like that. He's not my type at all. He finally stopped asking me out and messaging me. I guess he finally got the hint that he was wasting his time. I honestly hope he finds a good woman though someday. I sometimes feel bad for lying about being in a relationship when I'm really not. At the time it just felt like the right thing to do.
