Ever been in a situation when a man asks you out, and you tell them ‘No’ and then they assume it to mean ‘try harder’, or ‘use other means to pursue us’. This goes on until you tell them that you are seeing someone, that you have a boyfriend, girlfriend, husband, and then they very politely but with admitted dejection back off.
Clearly, men respect other men more. How come a no is not simplified while the fact that you are already with someone is? A NO means NO! What other language is one suppose to use. Sorry, people but it is not cool. If someone is interested they will let you know, not oush you off. Your persistence is only making our decisions more right.
#qotd Have you ever lied about being with someone to push away a man persistently trying to buy you a drink or ask you out on a date?
#aotd I have, oh so many times!

I’ve had friends in the past who were just like this – persistent. Annoyingly so. But, sometimes the inverse is true as well.
