Question Posted Saturday November 18 2006, 8:54 pm
okay, so i'm one of those girls that has a lot of guy friends. Well, one of my guy friends likes me, but i don't like him. i've told him that, but he constantly hugs me, puts his arm around me, etc. i try to be nice and just shrug it off, but it keeps happening. And it'd just be awkward if i said something about it. What on earth do i do?
also, i went to a party that he and his friend went to, and his friend is one of my really good friends, and he and i hung out a lot, and the guy who likes me got a little ticked.
i really really just want him to not like me. it's too difficult! Any suggestions as to what i should do?

You don't like him touching you in that way, and you need to make sure he knows that. If you continue to be nice about it, he's only going to think that you want him to do it. Telling him flat out is the only way to get it through his head.
