I broke up with my boyfriend of a year and a half about 3 months ago. I lost feelings for him, had no attraction to him, and he just always annoyed me. He was one of those people that just smothered me with love, and too much of a good thing is too much.
Anyways, we talked a lot after the break up, tried to make it work, but either way I just do not want to be in a relationship with him. I prefer him better as a friend. After trying to change my mind and feelings, I realized I could not. I wanted to break up with him many times, but was always worried about hurting him. So once I did it, I feel like I have to stick to it.
Problem is, he will not leave me alone. Keeps talking to me, flirting, I feel bad just ignoring him but I give him one word answers. Recently I made it VERY clear that I do not want a relationship. He wants to meet up and talk and convince me otherwise. How do I stay strong? He really is an awesome guy, I just do not want to be committed now. And my brain always forgets the reasons I broke up with him in the first place.
I'm meeting with him tomorrow, hopefully once and for all. How do I make it clear? Completely cutting off contact isn't really an option since we have a similar group of friends. I'm just so tired of this back and forth thing.
