This kinda geeky guy is obsessed with me. He gives me
compliments and presents, and tells me how much I mean to him. It’s flattering
but sort of creepy. I don’t like him, but I don’t want to hurt his feelings.
Dear Someone Get This Guy A Hobby,
I admire you for not wanting to hurt him, but your feelings
are important too. If you think you’re being stalked, tell an adult. But if his
attentions are more bothersome than threatening, be a little less friendly and
avoid running into him. He offers you another gift? Say, “I don’t feel
comfortable accepting this because I don’t want to give you the wrong idea.” Be
sure you aren’t giving him confusing signals. It might ultimately be kinder to
act lukewarm or aloof rather than polite and friendly. Age-old trick: Tell him
about a new crush or boyfriend.
