The Question Club
I have a stalker. He's one of the first people I met when I started at this university and he is also an inexperienced freshman experiencing culture shock. Except he's coming to our Midwest college town from Nigeria, so he's worse off than I, a corn-fed American girl ninety miles from home, could ever be.
I've tried to give him the boot, but he won't take the hint. It's definitely a culture thing - he pesters people I know and tells them that I'm "the only woman" for him, and that where he comes from, "when someone sits with you, it means they want your companionship." Unfortunately, I made the mistake of sitting with him once, before I realized he was a total creeper. I felt bad for him once because I know he doesn't have any friends here... but but he's a creeper.
So I can't shake him. I've tried everything short of setting his dorm on fire. Last time we came face to face, I ended up shouting at him to "GO AWAY" in a rather public place. Yet he's still following one of my friend Mike around (with whom he saw me sitting at dinner one night) and asking about me and trying to get Mike to convince me to be with him.
Dear Question Club, WHAT DO I DO? Short of setting his dorm on fire?
