I have this guy friend who likes me, and he's really annoying and clingy and always want to talk and spend time with me.
The last months I've tried distancing myself from him, avoiding him and making excuses thinking it would help to make him lose interest in me, get bored and go pester someone else, but I'm not sure it's working.

Unless he's completely clueless it should work, if it isn't and he's still being annoying.. You're just going to have to be upfront with him and tell him that you're not into him and you'd appreciate it if he gave you some space. I know you don't want to sound mean, but doing that is actually the nicest thing you can do because it will end this deluded hope he's got in his mind that you might actually like him and prevent him from wasting more of this time.1
