How to deal with a know-it-all?


I have a good friend, and he’s okay and all, but he is such a know-it-all and he’s really immature. If you try and suggest something, he immediately dismisses it if he doesn’t want to do it, and he thinks he’s always right. He constantly flatters my friends and I to the point of insincerity, and I don’t know how to deal with that. I’ve told him multiple times to stop trying to flatter me, but he never stops! He’s okay one-on-one, but honestly in school he is so annoying!
I’m just looking for some advice on how best to go about things with him.

Just ignore him and try to avoid him if he is stressing you out. You don't owe your time to anybody who makes you feel uncomfortable. Only respond to him when you think he is being nice and respectful.
