Dear Dish-It, He Won't Stop Calling Me
I've got this guy that won't leave me alone. I mean, I went out with him, and I told him I just wanted to be friends. But, he is totally gettin' on my nerves! Do I tell him? I mean, he calls me all the time and I have better things to do than to be on the phone. I play a lot of sports, so instead of talkin' on the phone all day I can be outside shooting some hoops or something. You know what I mean? But he always thinks he has to be with me. And it bothers him when I talk to other guys. I have a lot of guy friends and if I talk to one of them he thinks that I'm totally in love with them, but I'm not! What do I do?
Okay, I can't figure out whether this dude is still your BF or not, but your situation is pretty easy to solve. Whether you're dating this guy or you're just friends, you have to let him know that it's not cool to be calling you 24/7. You don't have to be mean to him - just let him know that you don't enjoy being on the phone all the time and suggest other things you might be able to do together. Why don't you invite him over to shoot some hoops with ya? It'll satisfy his desire to spend time with you and it'll get you off the phone and onto the court. As for him getting jealous of you talkin' to other guys, you gotta tell him to chill. If he can't keep the green-eyed monster in check, you're going to have to cut him loose. Good Luck!
So, ya gotta burnin' question? Need some love directions? Thinkin' 'bout stuff like depression, sex,how ya feel 'bout YOURSELF (that's called "self-esteem"), boyfriends, girlfriends, losin' old friends, bullyin' or peer pressure, but too scared to ask the parents? Don't be scared to .
