I asked the opposite question yesterday.
("How often do you text a person you're interested in?", was the question yesterday.)
Some of the answers, in my opinion, were a bit excessive.
So the question this time is, when you have a person that's really interested in you and you've lost interest what do you do?
Flat out tell them?
Maybe block them?
What do you do?
How do you get a person to stop texting you that you're not longer interested in?
I asked the opposite question yesterday.

If we were together but broken up, I'd make it clear that there's nothing else there for us. We most likely broke up for a reason, so if we didn't break up as simply a "we both need time to mature but maybe some day" then I'd try to make it very clear to them that while I'd be willing to remain friends, I don't want anything more. If they keep bothering me about it I'd probably threaten to block them before actually doing it, and if they continued to, I'd probably block them.1
Ignoring does not communicate the facts/feelings.
If they do not stop after that, then block them.1
Be honest with the person and tell them what you feel and what you want. If they don't respect that. Act accordingly.. If you need to... Block them.. But that shouldn't be the first resource..2
They don't care this is irritating, so all about them, nothing about you
This has produced results in past, so they won't quit until someone else texting in this blitz finally distracts them from you
Rejection will tempt them to spread nasties about you to proper candidates
so best to delete, move on, stiffarm feeling of irritation knowing that this too will pass1
I guess it depends on the whole situation. Like if you'd shown interest but never really announced it or gone on any dates or anything like that, then id just reply in such a way that it would imply I'd lost interest without bluntly telling them. If you had been on some dates then I think it would be more important to mention to them that you didn't really seem them in a romantic light anymore1
I think its easier to just limit your exposure at that point. Chat less and i believe they should be able to read between the lines BUT
If by chance they don't stop... then you can always just say something like an old connection you have surfaced and you'll get back to him sometime when you're free
Little push offs like that are ok with total strangers1
Tell and block them1
Drop some hints. Done small lie can help too... Like mentioning a guy you're totally into. If it doesn't help... Be honest. Even he starts flirting, just tell him how you feel about it.
Ignoring or blocking from the start is rude and the wrong way and should only be done if the other didn't work.1
I would tell just totally ignore them or tell them I'm not interested
in communicating over text message.1
I tell them that I'm not interested in a relationship with them. And if they don't stop texting, I'll either tell them bluntly to stop, or I'll just ignore them.1
Honesty is key here. Start with subtle hints if you want. If that doesn't work then be blunt and direct. Only after that should you block/ignore them. Starting with just ignoring someone you were talking to is rude, inconsiderate, and disrespectful.1
Tell them then block them if they don't get the hint1
Ehh... just don't respond very often and when you do, say "sorry I was busy" or something like that. They'll get the idea eventually.1
if u have a personal relationship with them tell them that ur no longer interested. if its just a quick online thing just ignore. only u would know better if u owe them an explanation or not based on the relationship.1
tell them 3 times to stop and let them know the forth you be filing harassment - stalking charges... but if you want to be nice just ask them to stop or else you will block the number and ignore them, say you are flattered but you just not for them1
Give them low key hints that you're not interested in speaking. For example, start with one word answers. If the person persists, then straight up tell them.1
I have a backbone, so I tell them to stop.1
You tell them girls will do this then when I don't hit them up they text me like make up your mind bitch1
Just ignore them and if they haven't already taken the hint (s) tell them off in a nice way1
You stop responding...1
Report them (to the police 🚨 if it becomes an issue you can't handle because of the other person)...1
Tell them. F.
Can't people communicate these days?1
Just ignore them.1
Just be honest. Tell thus person you're not interested and that you don't want anything to do with them. After what is bound to be some kind of mean reply, just ignore them.1
I would just flat out tell them, and if they continue on then I would block them.1
Well to cut them off just tell them you no longer find them interesting, sometimes you have too. I myself don't really get hints at all so I would appreciate it if I was told that so I could move on.1

I tell them upfront , but if they persist in contacting me , i ignore them. If i feel they are untrustworthy or manipulative, i block them. I don't keep anyone in my life who i don't want in it , for whatever reason4
Ignore them ala the Tar Baby story
if they attack (wanting a reason why), then tell them specifically what occupied you at that time (s) in 10 words or less
this might encourage another invitation to which you reply (later in the day) "sorry too busy this month" (and you never know what month you'll be unbusy)2
Depends on how much time you've spent together. If it's someone who have never met, you can simply say something like "I'm sorry, I'm not vibing this conversation at all, maybe it would be different in person. Thanks and good luck!"
If you know them IRL, however long that is, you should treat them the way you would want someone you were crushing to tell you. I hate liars or fake people, just tell me straight out, don't condescend me - you're doing me a favour by telling me. I know it's not me, it's the chemistry. As soon as I know, I say it. To not say it right away is cruel and merciless.
A good opener is to ask "What do you think about our chemistry?" and just take it from there. Honesty is ALWAYS the best policy.1
I don’t like hurting or upsetting anyone but also it’s not nice being led on, ignored etc. so I usually just say I be met someone and/or started seeing someone. That I’m happy to be friends though. That way it’s the best of both worlds as you can’t have to many friends1
I'm honest and tell them
If that doesn't work I ignore
If neither of those work then I block. I've only ever had to block one person for that specific reason. I think most people are reasonable once you have been honest with them. Their egos are bruised and they move on.1
Tell thay person you don't want to talk2
I'm at a point where I just don't reply anymore and someday they just stop1
Tell them to go away1

Call your service provider and ask them to block all calls and texts from that number.1
