So there you have it—6 nice ways and 6 not-so-nice ways to get someone to stop texting you. To recap, here are your options if you don’t want to be mean about it:
- Ask them nicely
- Tell them you’re seeing someone else
- Plead with them
- Get a new number
- Take time away from screens
- Ask help from mutual friends
And when they force your hand, here are your meaner options:
- Send prank error texts
- Block their number
- Get a number-blocking app
- Ask them firmly
- Threaten them
- Ask help from the police
Remember that most people are mentally stable enough to get the hint when you ask them to stop texting. Others may require a bit more insistence, especially if you’ve added a large amount of value to their lives. For these people, the nice methods are likely to suffice.
That said, you might be dealing with a psychopath, a narcissist, or someone with a mental issue. And with these people, the nice way won’t cut it, since being ignored is what they hate the most. You’ll need one of the firmer, more drastic measures to make them stop texting you. And the sooner you do it, the better.
So go ahead—start with the kinder methods, moving up to the firmer ways when they don’t work out. Your mental health depends on it.
