No, this is not about a girl. Do you ever feel someone is only being friendly to you because they want something from you ?("Ofcourse, silly question!") Well, I'm a quiet guy, and I'm fairly good academically, but not nearly the top nerd. Now there's this guy who I feel is only being friendly with me because he's not so hot in mathematics, and he wants me to help him. I have no problem helping someone who asks me, but this guy is a leech. He keeps bugging me to give him my solutions to the tuts I have written up; during, before and after lectures he's asking me questions on old problems and so on. Now I know this guy doesn't consider me a friend. How do I know? I just do; one can tell. We've never so much as shared a joke. This is not the first time this has happened to me. I kinda feel pathetic: people borrow books from me, acting all friendly until I lend them the book, and I never see them again until the end of semester. Asking me to write their code, help them with tuts etc. It seems lazy students are attracted to this pathetic figure slinked away silently in the corner, and they creep over, sucking the life out of me. As I said before, I am a good student, but not nearly the best, and quite a few of the more average students take it upon themselves to use me. Perhaps this is more feeling sorry for myself than anything, and here I am looking for your sympathy, or what, I don't know. But I am bothered by all this. I don't like them particulary, and they don't like me particularly. But I'm not going to buntly tell them to leave me alone- I just am not that type of person. I don't quite know what to do. Thoughts?
