Okay GAG, story time.
So, there's this guy.
Yes, I know that line is the most cliche way to start any sort of post on anything, but this story takes a twist. I met this guy online and he seems really nice. I know for a fact that we live pretty far away (three or four states). We talked for three hours tonight, and he seems to have a lot of emotional baggage. In the moment, I was super kind and supportive because I figured I'd never talk to this kid again. However, we became Facebook friends and he followed me on Instagram. The problem is, I realized after the fact that I don't want this guy constantly hounding me. When we were chatting online, he even told me he loved me (platonically, but still). I deleted my account on the site we met on because it was a stupid website anyways, but, now that I feel the need to ghost this guy, I know that I would have to unfriend and block him on Facebook and Instagram so that he can't find me and interrogate me as to why I stranded him. After just two hours of me being supportive of him in the moment, this guy's completely emotionally attached to me, and I don't know what to do. He's seen a lot of bad stuff and has a lot of abandonment issues and, as much as I'd love to be his supporter through all this, it's stressing me out and I don't feel like I should feel morally obligated to take care of this guy I don't know. Any advice?

Be honest, let him know your the wrong person to be leaning onto for support, and that it has made you totally uncomfortable with him.
I disagree with complete ghosting or a bs story to save his feelings, that's not helping him at all. Be a friend, and tell him the hard facts that he has to hear.
Secondly don't feel bad, I have been on both sides of the story, it's not your responsibility to help him heal !!! He needs to look within himself for those answers0
