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?
