Hey,

I'm having a serious problem here. I have a gay friend who won't leave me alone... he keeps harassing me and I don't know how to handle it. He also keeps making a move on me. Please tell me what I should do?!!!

Thank you

Just the same thing you should do with any friend who keeps trying to make an unwanted move on you, really.

Let him know clearly and firmly that you're not interested and you want him to stop his behaviour. If he won't respect that, then he's not a "friend" at all, and you have every right to break off the friendship.

If you've already made that clear to him and he still won't stop his behaviour, then you're right, this is harassment. In that case, it would be a good idea to talk to staff at your school and/or an adult you trust, explain what's been happening, and ask them to intervene. In an extreme case - e.g. if he's actually stalking you or assaulting you - then you may need to go to the police.
