    How to get a guy to stop texting?

    My cousin made a dating profile for me on cultural dating site during thanksgiving and found me a bunch of guys to “wink” at. One of them started messaging me and asked for my phone number. I didn’t really ever get a good luck at this guy’s profile as my cousin did it all. I found he only had 1 pic (which is a red flag in my experience). So I searched for him and found his FB, he is physically someone I would NEVER be interested in. He also acts very thirsty over texts. Things like double texting, him asking me permission so he may ask me a question (weird), and saying things like “text me back later!”” when I don’t answer. I have a lot going on in my life ( in terms of commitments to different groups/places/events I have to be at) and he from what I gather “relaxes” a lot. He doesn’t seem to have the activity level or drive that I’m looking for.

    After a whole week, he texts me again asking how my week was. I’m NOT interested. How do I let him down fairly easy?

    Sounds like you have no interest in him, at all….just stop texting him he will eventually get the message and stop texting you.

    I see you have a few options here: 1. Be up front with him and tell him you’re not interested in dating. You could also say something like ‘I wish you all the best in finding someone special. You seem like a thoughtful person, so you deserve to find someone that is into you, and is ready to date right now’ – or something to that effect.
    2. So what imboostin says and ignore him.
    3. failing all the above – most smart phones have a feature that allows you to block phone numbers so that they can’t call or text you.

    Good luck!

    I would be honest with him and if he doesn’t get the message, just block him.

    I would just ask him to stop texting and that you’re not interested. If he doesn’t stop, block him.

    Tell him straight up to stop texting you and then ignore him and never reply. He will get the picture fast.

    I would just stop responding and he will eventually get the point

    For me personally, I would rather you let him down easy and tell him the truth instead of “ghosting” him like many girls does. It might be more uncomfortable but it would enable him to learn for the future.

    Just tell him that it’s not the right time for you at the moment or that you are going travelling and it just won’t be feasible?
