Being Harassed by Guy I Went on One Date With

Group Therapy: Difficulty Dealing With a Spurned Date

This question is from a Group Therapy post in our TrèsSugar Community. Add your advice in the comments!

I went out on one date with this guy about 2 months ago and was not really feeling him. I hung out with him twice after that but we didn't engage in anything sexual and I told him very clearly that I wasn't interested in something serious with him.

I met someone else and really felt a connection with the guy so I told this guy privately and to his face (not over the phone, text, etc.) that I had met someone else and didn't think it right to continue dating him given that I didn't think it had a chance (and also I was grateful for a legitimate excuse out of seeing this guy which I didn't tell him). He got upset. I mentioned that I hope one day we could be friends and he agreed.

It's been about 6 weeks since that day and I see this guy every day (in university together). He ignores me in public but sends me cute little texts all the time. I'm really starting to get pissed off with the being ignored in public. I feel as if I've done something horrible to this guy and I need to tread on eggshells to make sure that his feelings don't get hurt.

It's gotten to the point that I don't want to answer his texts anymore. How do I let this guy know that I don't appreciate being treated as if I have committed some horrible crime against him? (It's been 6 weeks since I broke things off with him and we'd only been on one date!!)
