Text Me Never

It was Saturday night and the party I was at off campus had just gotten broken up by the cops. I walked back on campus and there he was standing at Gate 7 alone. I couldn’t help but say, “Hi.” We used to text but that was something we left behind our sophomore year. As I walked to The Edge to get some free pizza, my phone went off and he texted me. It is now Tuesday and he has been texting me ever since then. If I don’t answer right away he double texts me. I don’t want to be rude and not answer but this whole texting again is beginning to weird me out. How can I tell him that I do not want this texting relationship to start up again?
Text Me Never
Dear Text Me Never,
Here are a few simple tips to stop the conversation. 1) Tell him that you have to finish your homework and that you are turning off your phone. This should allow you some precious study time and maybe he will even start to forget about you. If you both have an Iphone make sure you turn off imessage so it doesn’t look like you are lying. 2) Stop responding. Every text does not merit a response. 3) If he hasn’t learned by now that the “double text” only belongs to pubescent middle schoolers, he is out of luck. There is no need to respond back to someone who is overly clingy. 4) Find out why all the sudden he is texting you again. Does he plan on stalking you? Or does he just want to be friends?
Hopefully he will get the hint.
