Some years ago I had a classmate in school who told me that he liked me. He told me via text message. I didn’t tell him anything as I did not have romantic feelings for him whatsoever. I think I made that clear. After the semester ended we also didn’t keep in touch. At least I didn’t, just to let him know that I’m really not interested and that he shouldn’t get any ideas.
Just now, I received a Facebook friend request. Why can’t this guy understand that I am not interested? It’s been years and still he remembered me! I really wish he forgot about me because I have not been thinking of him. His profile was not restricted to his friends so I got to read it. He’s still single.
I just don’t think it’s a good idea to confirm the friend request and be in contact with him. He might think I like him too. I already deleted him from my IM contacts just to show him that I’m not interested at all in anyway.
So what would be the best way to deal with this? Just ignore the friend request?
