No seas así. - Don't be like that.
Vas a terminar enamorándome. - You're going to end up making me fall in love.
A bit stilted but it's a literal translation. You can figure out a better one I'm sure.

De nada
I can see your confusion. If it were "Vas a terminar enamorándote" you would be the one falling in love.
