A reader asks:
“My question focuses on how to deal nicely with obsessive people. In the course of internet dating, a man who knows very very little about me has fixated on me obsessively. He seems like a really nice person who probably gets a lot of brutal rejection based on his M.O. I would be happy if there was a way I could be friends with him, he seems very smart and very very lonesome. Is there a kind method to use in dealing with someone who is obsessive/obsessed with the idea of you?”
I can’t answer this without a chart or other specifics but I am thinking others out there might have some general advice or guidelines. Please advise, if you can. This is a really good question.
How can you deal nicely with someone obsessed with you?
