POLL: Take a hint...

Wednesday, April 27, 2011 - 12:00 AM

A reader writes... I recently reconnected with a friend from middle school and hung out with him on two separate occasions. I enjoyed the time we spent together, but he seems to have gotten the wrong idea. He has asked me out four times in a row. I told him I had other plans, but he just won't take a hint. I'm far too awkward and polite to tell him flat-out I don't like him, but I want to remain friends with him. How should I send get him to take a hint?
POLL: How can she get him to take a hint?
 
3% (24) Keep trying. He'll get it sooner or later.
 
72% (580) You need to be firm with him. Give him that "you're like a brother to me" jumk.
 
0% (7) Ignore the problem. He'll move on to something else.
 
23% (186) You're not going to be able to salvage the friendship. Cut it off now.
