if you can figure out a solution to this, you are my hero for the rest of the year...

ok, so i have this one friend that calls me up absolutely every single day. now most of the time, i enjoy his company. the problem is, i don't want to hang out with him anywhere near as much as he wants to hang out with me. this is mainly because he has few other friends. to make matters worse, almost none of my other friends like him much, and some even hate him, so its not even like i can just bring him around when i'm chilling with my other friends. to make things EVEN WORSE, he is the most confrontational motherfucker around and he's like ultra paranoid and suspicious, so it's really difficult to tell him little lies to get him off my case as well.

what in the world can i do?
