Might sound weird. I'm M/17. I met a 12 year old girl on playstation. I didn't even know how old she was. Its kinda getting annoying and awkward. She emails me once in a while. The worst part is the texting, she texts me like all day. How can I get her to calm down? Without making her feel bad? Like I'll be with my friends or family and I get constant texts. Then its kinda awkward because shes like 12. And a 12 year old texting a 17 year old seems weird. I've known her for about a year too. I don't wanna be mean but...you know...its kinda annoying.
Tell her that her constant texting is not only harasment but could cause you legal problems as her texting constitues a form of relationship. The 5 year age difference between you makes this relationship illegal. To protect yourself you will have to inform her IP provider of this harrasment and she could loose the rights to the web.
I know being this blunt is is hard to do and that you don't want to hurt her. But, there is always that but. There is a legal question her of stalking. Her to you. Plus does her texting of you constitute a relationship? If so you could be in legal trouble if she wre to say something to the wrong person. So either be blunt with her. Tell your parents and let them handle it, or talk to the police and let them handle it.
This is a young girl that seems to have a crush on you. Your legal well being could be at risk here. She needs to stop.

This girl may have a crush on you. (Possibility) and you are right it is kind of weird. This girl is a child and she is way to young to be taking interest in someone who is 5 years her senior.
Now, In a blunt but not so harshly way you could say this; "I enjoy talking to you but I find the text messaging a little impulsive can you please tone it down" Hopefully she'll get the message but again as you stated she is a 12 year old kid. If she doesn't get it then just tell her that it makes you uncomfortable and you want her to stop. [ Zane's advice column | Ask Zane A Question ]
