The other day I listened as a friend of mine told me how fed up she was with a new guy she’d been seeing. Although he was nice, cute, and apparently hardworking, he was just TOO into her.
Let me explain.
My friend is a busy woman. She works full time, is pursuing another Masters degree, and is very involved in our sorority. On top of this, she isn’t a phone person (and isn’t in a rush to get hitched), so warning signs started to go off in her head when she realized dude called every day…multiple times per day.
Clearly he’s feeling her, but after already informing him that she can’t (and doesn’t want to) talk to him on the phone every day, he still keeps calling. The other day she sent him a text message reminding him she needs and likes her space, and he called to talk to her about it. Clearly, this wasn’t going to work.
Although he’s nice, it’s quite clear he doesn’t respect her wishes or her boundaries…so he’s got to go.
How do you break the news to someone that it’s just not going to work out? Should she just stop answering his calls and responding to his texts or should she talk to him–one last time?
Weigh-in and help a sista out!
