I have a problem....of course. I know a boy from school who I think likes me TOO much. He calls me ALL the time, and he leaves gifts on my front porch....and I don't know how he found out where I live! He is always asking me to hang out, but I don't want to. I have told him that perhaps he is more interested in a relationship than I am, but since he is from another culture, I don't think he understood. He just asked if he could call later. Not only is it embarrassing to find these gifts on my porch, I am also concerned that it will become more extreme. How can I get him to leave me alone without being rude?
Confused (and Jewish as well)
I think you are not strong enough in telling this young man that you don't want to see him. If he continues to annoy you, have your parents tell him that you are not ready for male companionship or to "hang out".
Don't take any of the things he leaves at your house and don't take his phone calls. Let him know that you are definitely NOT INTERESTED.
