So this guy who graduated a couple years before I did has been talking to me a lot since last summer, which is when I graduated. Now we were more than aquaintances but less than friends in high school, we were both in marching band and track so we did talk a lot. Last summer he started telling me that he’s been interested in me since high school and all that jazz but I was able to keep him at bay (if you will, that seems kind of harsh to me but I don’t know how else to put it) because I was just getting into a flirtationship which quickly turned into a relationship, and after that ended we were both away at school. Mind you, this entire time he was still very upfront about how he felt about me, being so bold as to say things like “I wish I could hold you and kiss you right now”, which made me feel uncomfortable as I am not interested in him like that. So now that we’re on break, he asked me to go to the movies with him and some friends, I thought it was understood between us that I don’t really want a date from him, I decided that I needed to get out of the house and that the movies sounded like fun. After the movie he walked me to my car, which I stated was not necessary, but he insisted. And me being the nice person that I am I said thanks for the movie and that I had a good time and gave him a quick goodbye hug, like you would any friend, but this guy kisses me! Out of no where! This made me feel really bad because I thought I had made it clear that I wasn’t interested in that at all. And now I don’t know what to do, I don’t want to be mean and just cut him out, I do enjoy talking to him, but at the same time I don’t know how to let him understand that I’m just not interested. Please help!
