Man in my walking group has become obsessed with me and messages me every day

DEAR DEIDRE: A MAN in my walking group has developed an unhealthy obsession with me.

He messages me every few days and sends me irrelevant memes and articles, even though I don’t respond to any of them and never have.

If I mention that I can’t make one of the walks, he becomes very insecure and sends multiple messages every day.

He sent me a Christmas card last year saying he was looking forward to our walks and weekends away next year with the group.

I’m 26 and he’s 31. I have no desire to date him and have never given that impression.

I feel as if he is trying to force himself into my life.

I feel like leaving and joining another group.

DEIDRE SAYS: It sounds like he is hoping for far more than you want.

You have to be honest.

Tell him you know he likes you, but you are not interested in him in that way.

It’s sad for him but we all face rejection at some stage in our lives.

Say you wish it was different and you know that it puts you in a very uncomfortable place, but you just don’t see him as more than a friend.
