God, what a creep. Well firstly I believe it’s sensible that you simply informed him to again off and threatened to inform his spouse. That will certainly scare him and let him know in no unsure phrases that you simply’re completely not .

I believe if he carries on texting you, or does something to make you are feeling uncomfortable, then you must inform your mum, who will in all probability in flip inform his spouse.

He appears like an terrible particular person, and I doubt you’re the primary younger lady he’s tried his luck with.
