    Considering most of my friends thrive on social awkwardness, well mostly they are just silly, this kid might fit in. It really depends which type of awkwardness you're talking about. I don't really mind creepy because I can be creepy myself. I'm usually quite apathetic about these types of social situations.

    Only real advice I can give you is either make him change, put up with weird behavior, or have a group discusion. If most of your friends get together and talk to him, he might get the message.

    I know a John Doe too...wow...small world.

    But all jokes aside, i find that honesty is the best route. Just tell him that you dont see yourself and him being good friends at all, that you just (and your friends) aren't compatible with him.

    ...actually, i dunno. Tough one, g'luck with this one cpr.

You'd probably get pissed off and stomp away. Even if you did recognize the issue, changing isn't that easy, and it's really easy to slip back into old patterns.
    Well, it worked when I did it and it helped. And I hate high school dramas, and I'm not even at high school yet.

    I actually was a John Doe too in my junior high. They ran away from me. It hurts you know. I don't know why they did that, maybe cuz i'm just a little bit smarter than them and the teachers always praised me. I didn't asked to be smart you know, so what if i'm a little smart, doesn't mean i can't have friends right? Damn them!!

    I am kind of a socially awkward person myself and I really hate hypocrisy (both things are connected).
    I would never prefer false frinds to no friends
    (at least I hope so, to be perfectly honest I always had a few friends/buddies and don´t know complete Isolation).

    If I was him I would like you not to just get rid of me.
    I would like you to tell me what´s wrong with me.
    But If I fail to get rid of these attitudes, you would be free to kick my "sore Butt".

    The way you i see this is that you've somehow cared for that person. or maybe you just don't want your conscience to haunt you if you'll be mean. Also, you might just being pressured by your peers to ignore this person. Happens a lot of times.

    If i was on your situation, and you want to help this guy, I'd ask my girl friend who called him creepy and ask EXACTLY why she did. Tell him what she said. Simply telling the guy people feel creepy about him's not gonna help him. Well, having this guy hang around you must mean you must feel OK for him, at least. So telling him the problem as it emerges is the way to go.

    If your at your limit and tried enough to help him, then it's time to give the axe and be an ass. I'll simply tell him that he's not improving and review the points I tried to help him with. Not that I hate him or anything but he's causing trouble. hehehe. mean.

    I'm with Mojo and Atrum, sit his ass down and tell him stop being a douche. Be gentle about it if possible but try to get the point across, that you know you are his only friends but that doesn't mean he has to play shadow to you. Appreciate his enthusiasm but tell him there is a limit and if he wants to make more friends he needs to chill out and go with the flow.


    I'd like to die with the songs I love stuck in my head. I hope to make the most of these hollow bones we become.
    I raise a toast to the the souls that sang all along. I've been gathering friends to just to make some sounds,
    before the ship goes down, I've been making amends by making the rounds before the whole world ends

    The best way to get rid of him is to be an ass to him. Saves you time from explaining why you want him gone.
