Say you have mutual friends. But you despise them and have no respect for them. Would you hang out with them just cause the mutual friend wanted you all to be a big happy family?
I have told my friend over and over I do not like them and he knows why.
And still thinks we're supposed to hang. I don't get it. What would you do?

I have and probably would. As long as we can both be adults, it should be fine. There is this one girl who is really mean to me for no reason. I guess she just doesn't like me. But she is friends with pretty much all my friends. So I have had to hang out with her on occasion. Lucky for me, she rarely stays long when we have to hang out! :P
Now friends knowing that you two don't like each other and trying to get you two to hang is pretty silly. Your friend should respect how you feel and be sensitive to that. You can't like everyone and for whatever reason you and the other friend are not friends. That is perfectly normal. There are lots of people my friends know that I don't know and I still manage fine in life.
I had friends that tried to do that to me and it always ended badly. They can't force you to be friends with someone who doesn't like you or vice versa. You can still be their friend even when they have friends that don't like you. I would talk to your friend about this.
Let them know how you feel. You have already told them why, but remind them. Sometimes people just don't think some things are a big deal. For instance, my one friend thought that me and my ex bf's new girlfriend and my ex boyfriend should be best friends. WTF :S My ex boyfriend ruined one of my friendships, hurt me and now thinks that we should all be friends?
Needless to say we never became friends. Actually I like his new girlfriend, I just don't like him! :P
