Default What to do with super needy friends

So i have this buddy that will now text me constantly, or sometimes he'll even call me and the convo would probably go on for like an hour but both times i've made excuses and cut the convo short at like 20 minutes.


I mean I don't want to diss the dude, he's a nice guy, but it feels more like i'm talking to a chick with him than a dude.


When I tell him i can't talk, he'll send me sad faces and say that he's bored.


It's like he always needs to be talking to someone. It's fukkin weird...lol. None of my other homies do this.



What should I do?

Try to find out why he is so needy... it could help..
Try to introduce him to your friends, so they can help you to carry the load(LOL, no pun intended)

Sounds like he likes you as more than a friend

OR

He's really lonely and thinks you're his only friend, doesn't know how to make new friends, etc..

I find that really annoying, just cut it off early and make it obvious you arent going to tolerate it.

Just don't respond to his texts or calls sometimes. It works with girls, so why not with an overly needy friend?
