Telling Someone to Stop Texting

I'm really confused. There's this guy, we're gonna call him Jim because I want to respect peoples' privacy. See a while back, Jim had a crush on me. I liked him back, but we didn't date. After a while, I stopped liking Jim. I realized the only reason I liked him was because my friend, we're gonna call her Stacy, liked Jim. I assumed everything about him was amazing because Stacy clearly saw something in him which is what led me to like Jim. So that was the only reason I every liked Jim.

I tried letting him down slowly by saying. "I'm conflicted by our relationship and I need time", or something. But this idiot Jim kept texting me saying "Did I do something wrong? I'm sorry" and stuff like that. So I told him, "You didn't do anything wrong, I just lost interest". And he kept messaging me. I got pissed off and told him, "stop, I don't want you in my life anymore just leave me alone please". We didn't talk for a while and I got a boyfriend.

Then this morning, he sends me a long text asking to be friends. "I want to be friends", "I liked your friend group, but it's hard for me to hang out with them if I don't want to be a part of your life" and things like that. I told him "I don't want you to avoid me all the time, but you don't have to be so close of a friend for you to sit with me at lunch". I just thought it would be weird if a guy with a massive crush on me hung out with me more than my boyfriend did (my boyfriend goes to another school). Then he responds with the literally dumbest idea ever, "how about we be friends on Thursdays and Tuesdays and strangers every other day" Like WTF?! That's not how it works idiot. So I say, "that's not how friends work" and he says "I just want to hang out with you". What should I do?

If you really don't like the guy and he is annoying you there is a way to block him from texting you on your phone. Save yourself a lot of grief and just block him. Before you do this tell him nicely that you don't want him to text you anymore and if he continues like this you will block him. That is the best way to handle it.

Yes tell this young man that you have moved on, and out of respect he should not call/text. If it keeps on, block his calls. A true friend would respect your wishes !

He's not getting it and it's annoying. Tell him you're removing his number and do so.

Tell him that you have tried to exain to him several times that you are not interested and you are now going to block his number. (If you do see him outside of texting) tell him that if he contacts you or doesnt leave you alone face to face you will call the cops on him for harrassment.

He clearly does not get the memo.

I would

I have a boyfriend. I am not interested in you more than a friend, sorry. We can still be friends - hi, quick conversations here and there but not like having lunch just the both of us. Hope you can respect that. If not, we'll just leave it as being acquaintances.

Maybe you should just be really mean and vicious so that he doesn't want anything more to do with you

or you could find an older cousin or brother to intimidate him into leaving you alone

this person no longer seems interested in interacting with you under reasonable terms

I would just block him. He is not respecting your wishes, which is not the mark of a good friend. Some men feel entitled to a woman's affection and it is best to nip it in the bud. If he continues to harass you, I would look into a restraining order. Your safety comes first.
