Adopt poor cell phone etiquette: Make him repeat everything two or three times, then respond with a disappointed «oh.» Have side conversations with people in the same room while he’s still on the line, or better yet, eat noisily while he’s talking.
Tell him you’re so glad you finally found someone who likes talking on the phone so much, since your ex-boyfriend only called like, three times a day. Proceed to tell a long story about how you had to argue with the shoe salesman over the price of the fabulous Gucci boots you bought earlier today.
Agree to meet with him. Looking as unattractive as you are willing to be seen in public, order a lot of expensive food and drinks. Complain about the restaurant while stuffing your face. Go to the bathroom whenever he begins to tell a story. If there is music playing, pause for a moment and then say, “This is the song my ex & I used to play during ‘SEXY time’.” It doesn’t even matter what song it is, it works every time.
Tell him you are awfully sorry, but you aren’t attracted to men anymore, and this is beyond your control. And no, your new girlfriend does not want anything to do with him. If you don’t want to do this, then tell him you have a boyfriend and he’s a professional bodybuilder.
Talk about very personal things with him, like your period or what your ex boyfriend liked to do in bed.
Block his number.
Remember, if all else fails, tell him honestly that his calling too much is really hindering your liking him at all, and that more calls will not change that.
Try getting another guy to answer your phone. Once he hears the other man’s voice, it sends a signal that you’ve moved on.
Try acting like he’s not there when you answer the phone. Example: you answer the phone with a simple «Hello?» and the guy starts talking while you say things like «Is anybody there?» After about 10 seconds of this, hang up. Do this to the point where he gets upset (he probably will), and he will either quit calling, or you should simply turn your phone on silent, and go on with your life.
Some guys can’t take a hint. In the long run, a plain, old «no» might be less cruel and more effective than stringing him along, waiting for him to figure it out for himself.
If you don’t like him, avoid giving him your number in the first place.
Don’t hint to the guy that you think you are a lesbian if you don’t want that rumor spreading throughout his friends or your friends.
These approaches are not recommended if the guy has hot friends that you later may want to date.
The rare specimen is persistent and desperate enough to continue calling after all attempts to thwart his affections; in these cases, pretending to move out of town, feigning a change in sexual orientation, and restraining orders are all viable options.
Edit When to Seek Help
Stay safe. You should never tolerate or permit any of the following behaviors:
Unfamiliar locations: if he wants you to meet him somewhere you’ve never been before, asks you to ride in his car alone with him, or wants to meet where no one can see you, take extreme caution. Let someone else know where you are, bring someone along with you without his knowledge, change the location, or just simply refuse to meet with him alone.
Threats of any kind: physical, verbal, sexual, intellectual (it does exist) or other intimidation, such as brandishing a possible weapon. This is known as Assault: it doesn’t result in immediate violence or contact, but leads a reasonable person to believe violence or unwanted contact is imminent. Watch for signs of Assault, which are indicators that you should cease talking or seek immediate help. If it’s Aggravated Assault (where the threats are of a particularly emotional or intimidating nature, or he reveals that he’s in close proximity to you), hang up or get away fast, then seek help.
Unwanted Sexual Advances: If you are not interested in a sexual relationship, tell him clearly «No», «Stop» or «Leave me alone.» Don’t keep saying it… if he persists, hang up. If he starts to persist in calling you, seek help.
