I attend a BI group and there is one man who goes there who (trying not to sound mean) doesn't fit in. He is over friendly and always negative about things. He had his head injury when he was a child around 5 years old I think. Everyone has welcomed him and supported him. With me he has been over friendly he is old enough to be my dad but he has made it clear he likes me a lot as in would like to be more than just friends. I have told him I have got a boy friend to try and make him see me more as a friend but honestly he is still over friendly. Cuddling me holding my hand kissing me. Generally wanting my attention by being childish, sticking his tongue out, tapping me and moving away as if it wasn't him and putting his arm round me in hope I'll do the same. I have been ignoring this behaviour. He has text me saying how much my friendship means to him and he has done some silly things in past meaning suicide attempts and wanting to meet up. I have avoided meeting him outside the group as I don't want him to get any ideas that I want to be in a relationship with him.
Yesterday the woman who runs group asked me if this man had been texting me. She said he has been texting other women in the group wanting to meet them too. I'm assuming it's all in friendly way as he is lonely and I know it's not nice feeling you have no one, but he seems to be so desperate to be with people he's pushing them away. Also the woman said she isn't sure if this man fits in the group with having BI as a child cos no way of knowing if it has changed who he is. I think she's saying this more as I think he makes others uncomfortable and he just ignores what people say. Like I would love to meet people who go there away from the group as friends but I wouldn't be comfortable meeting this man away from the group.
