I just only feel comfortable here, I hope no one minds, but I'd like some life advice from you fellow old-souls! I've been away for a while because I've been juggling life issues, sorry for the absence. I've been having problems with my ex boyfriend's best friend. Two weeks after I became single (broke up with my ex) his best friend (Dave) started telling me how much he liked me, kept flirting and insinuating he wanted waaay more than I was prepared to give him. Dave would complain that he wanted attention from me and get jealous when I gave attention to other people. Send me walls of texts as if we were already in some kind of relationship. We hung out once with one of his colleagues from work, we all watched a movie and sat on the couch together and the colleague put his arm around me, Dave got annoyed and left, the moment he'd gone he sent me a string of extremely jealous messages, demanding to know if I was sleeping with the colleague. It's been months since then, but Dave has brought it up repeatedly. Dave keeps saying he's always liked me, but we've never been close, for years when I'd try to hug him, he'd run a mile, and now he constantly prompts me to give him attention. I've spent too long seeing him as the friend of my ex and I've told him that nothing will ever happen between us. But he is extremely persistent. When he accuses me of liking his colleague, he says he's only looking out for my ex's feelings, but he also wants to be in a relationship with me himself and expects my ex to 'be okay with that and accept it'. It's just that I've told him repeatedly that I'm not interested in him, and that he makes me uncomfortable, and it stops for a while. But now and then he tells me I should stay the night, tells me to cuddle him. But I do nooot want to do these things. Dave has been single for seven years, he's dated lots of girls and has always comes to me for advice, but they all seem to block/ignore him after one or two days. The desperation has made him unbearably relentless, and I can't help him. How do I deal with this situation?
