This is Teake it or Leave it advise

Dear Annie,

I have a next door neighbor that thinks we are great friends when, in reality, I can't stand him at all. It almost seems like he knows my work schedule because he comes over right when I get home to spill his guts and tell me boring stories.  I've tried to play hard to get but it just doesn't seem to work. I don't want things to get awkward with us, but I also don't want to be friends. Help?
