Then what you could do is just Ignore him & I think he will get bored & leave you Alone :)
Report as
I been ignoring his texts and calls for 2weeks and he's still doing the same
Report as
Then tell him Straight Out "Leave me Alone" or "Just Stop Bothering Me!" or Find a Way to Block his Number

Say you're tired, and that you're going to bed or going to go take a nap. It always works for me.

You don't have to text back, because no one sleeps for only 20min. You sleep for 5hours, or you can act like you're your mom or dad and say "(insert your name here) has gotten her phone taken away for (insert a reasonable amount of time here), please stop texting and/or calling her till she can get it back, goodbye."

Bluestone is right. I'm aware you are a girl, that's why it makes sense so the boy will stop texting you. And thank you. I'm a girl.

Blocking someone is not mean at all. At least tell him he's annoying you, if you can't be honest then it won't stop.

Well true
Thanks :)

If you need him to stop texting you permanently, then just let him know you aren't interested. There is no nicer way to do it. If you string him along, then he will think you're just being a tease. Tell him the truth, and it will be much easier. Let him know that if he continues to text you, then you will have to block him.

I agree with trixie. Some guys can't get the hint or can't take no for an answer. Trixie has the right idea.

You could always just tell him that you two have been texting for a while, and just give the texting a little break so you can go do other things with your life.
