think my friend needs some serious help he has an obsession with a girl he hangs about with but she's not interested but he won't give up he insists on trying to make her love him which isn't going to happen she told him this last time they were out and he took 60 paracetemol so I was told.
He tends to lie about things as well and exaggerates on the truth to make himself look better I'm not sure what to do and he's becoming a danger to himself. The girls already cut all ties with him and isn't hanging out with him now but now he's even more obsessed.
They have never dated or had any sexual expereince what so ever with each other.
any advice would be appreciated or the name of the condition if it exists.
he is 20 years old and refuses to see a phsycologist and makes up lies about things going on his family and such whnever he knows your right to make it sound like everyone is against him.

How dreadful it would be if your friend were to get involved with someone in a serious relationship and they broke up. If he is acting this irrationally over a girl that has made it clear that she is not interested, think what your friend might do to someone he has an even stronger connection with. It is very hard to get psychological help for someone who is not willing to get the help or does not recognize he has a problem. However, if he is a threat to himself or to others that is another area that he MUST get help for rather he likes it or not. As his friend you could facilitate getting him into some sort of program if he indeeds is a physical threat to anyone. But if that is not the case there isn't too much you can do but continue to be a friend, make positive suggestions, and show him his irrational behavior is not going to lead him down a happy road.

If your friend refuses to seek help try taking him out to meet some new ladies. Go to the bar, the club, and parties. Make sure he looks his best and maybe when he goes to the bathroom tell some girls to approach him. Be his wingman for the night. Show him he's a desired man and doesn't need to obsess and be depressed about 1 lady because there are plenty of fish in the sea! It may take some time but you can help him through it in that way. Hope I helped! [ jewelzx0's advice column | Ask jewelzx0 A Question ]
