Okay so I'm friends with my best friend's boyfriend. I like him as a friend because we have a lot in common. They broke up a week ago. We've been texting, and he asked me out. I don't like him like that, and now he's constantly texting me and freaks out if I don't text him back, every five minutes! He's driving me crazy, and I don't know what to say to him to get him to leave me alone. I want him as my friend but I don't know how to let him down and tell him he's freaking me out. What should I do? How do I get him to stop bothering me 24/7?
POLL: How should she tell him?
 
85% (1165) Tell him to his face, and in direct terms. Otherwise, he's just gonna hear what he wants to hear.
 
2% (30) He'll get the hint sooner or later. Just respond to the texts you want to respond to and ignore the rest.
 
7% (98) Freeze him out completely. No contact. No replies.
 
2% (39) Maybe you ought think about giving him a chance
 
2% (30) Change your phone number. And maybe your address.
