I met this guy a few months ago -- he seemed pretty cool and we had a great time together, but things ended up going south pretty soon after we met. He was very aggressive and persistent, and while I was incredibly flattered at first, it started to become extremely overbearing and tiresome. I began to distance myself but he continued to call me, text me and e-mail me. I am not one for confrontation so I avoided all of his advances like the plague and never returned his calls, e-mails or texts. I HATE when guys do that to me, just drop off the face of the earth with no explanation, but I am doing the exact same thing to this guy. I know that I shouldn't feel bad about not reciprocating his feelings, but I do feel bad about ignoring the situation even though I have no desire to contact him, let alone date him or spend time with him. Is what I am doing a complete double standard or is it forgivable since guys do it to girls all the time?
