The answer to the question you asked is that you definitely should end this friendship. I don’t disagree that you need to strongly enforce your boundaries, but you communicated your reaction to his initial sexual gambint/assault quite clearly on multiple occasions. A friend would have stopped immediately, realizing you didn’t want anything more than friendship and that his actions upset you. A sexual abuser wouldn’t stop. This shows you how this guy views his ‘friendship’ with you. Not your friend. Good to learn how to enforce boundaries, but that will just draw out the process with this guy. Save the hassle and MOA. No need to explain why — believe me he knows. No need to do it in person. Hate to say this, but probably safer to do it by fade or text. It is possible for you to have a platonic male friend, but this guy isn’t it.
