Life, Complicated

One of my friends has always tried to set me up with this douchbag I know. He's a complete jerk, and honestly abuses me. One of the worst people I know. She says we are 'perfect for each other' or something like that. (she doesn't know how much of a jerk he can be) So I asked one of my best guy friends to be my fake boyfriend to get her to stop. And i unintelligibly did this over text.
So he ended up confessing his feelings for me, and how he actually wants to date me.
I only think of him as a friend.
But to make maters worse, we had an entire text conversation where I was pretending to be into him, and he was 'acting' as my boyfriend when he thought we actually got together and it was all real. It wasn't on my side.
So i pretty much ruined our friendship.
And broke my best friend's heart.
Advice on how to make this better? Because it sucks dick right now.
