Best answer: My ex did this to me. We agreed to stay friends after the break up because we didn't leave on bad terms - I just left because I wasn't really feeling the relationship for a few reasons. After we were over romantically, I would get a lot of texts asking me to come back to him as a girlfriend, telling me he missed me/still loved me, saying how he still thought about us/what could have been, etc. He even went so far as to say he had "tried" to look around and start dating again, but just couldn't find anyone who had the qualities that I do and reminded me that to him, I was the perfect partner and had everything he looked for and then some.
Guys can take things hard just like girls can. If they really do care for you, they're going to be sad/disappointed if you decide to end the relationship for whatever reason... especially if it seems random to them (like there wasn't any fighting, cheating, etc.). The best thing to do is be mature and respectful about things. Explain to him WHY you left and explain that you don't exactly "hate" him or anything, it's just you don't think you were working well in a dating sense.
You have every right to decline talking to him if you really don't wish to have any contact with him or he's bothering/harassing you. You can block his number from your phone (or change yours and ask that others NOT give it to him) and you can block him/delete him from social media. As far as seeing him at college, yeah I can see how that would be a little awkward. Just do you though. Go on about your normal business and don't pay any attention to him. If he would try to approach you, you can handle it two ways - you can talk to him and be nice about it as long as he stays casual (if he mentions dating, walk away) or you can just politely tell him you'd rather not talk to him and move on. If things get too problematic, you can talk to someone from your college's staff or a college police officer if you have those. If things REALLY get out of hand, you can contact the REAL local authorities. Stalking and harassment is absolutely not allowed. If someone breaks up with you, you cannot bully, harass or torment them. If you receive harassing/threatening texts/emails/social media posts, keep them and show them to the proper authorities.
Good luck - I hope your situation gets better and you're both able to move on and find new people to be with when the time is right.
