All women at some point have encountered an overaggressive male who will not stop flirting with her. These men seem to have no shame when approaching women in public places. They will sit at the same table as the girl even when other seats are still available, follow a girl for blocks in the opposite direction they need to go, and continuously poke a girl on Facebook even after he has been defriended. Their persistence might be admirable if they could take a hint or had all of their original teeth. How can woman get rid of these charming men?
Step 1: Ignore
When an obnoxious stranger says something and you get a negative vibe, the first course of action is to completely ignore them. Ignoring a problem in life rarely solves it. Ignoring a pushy person almost always does. Unlike the garbage that needs to be taken out, a person has feelings and they will be hurt if you show no reaction. This first step is perfect to test just how socially unaware the flirter is. The longer he continues to try working his charm, the higher ranking warlock he probably is in an online game.
Step 2: Short Responses
Ignoring may not always work. If you find saying nothing will not get the guy to leave you alone, begin responding with as few words as possible. Words like “no”, “stop”, and “leave” have the possibility at doing the trick. Anytime you give someone a long response you are inviting them to do the same. Short responses usually lead to shorter follow-up questions, unless the guy decides to get wise and ask why you are being so unresponsive. When this happens you move straight to the third step.
Step 3: Get Mean
Some people cannot take a hint. You can be as passive with your hatred for them as possible and they still will never realize how much you are fuming with disgust. You should always treat people with respect, but it is also equally important to treat people the way they are treating you. Invading your personal space and life for that matter is not a nice thing to do. In these situations it is perfectly reasonable to get mean with the creepy guy. Insult him, curse loudly, and degrade. Never be afraid to go for the jugular. Remember that this is the same guy who came up to you asking dumb questions about your earrings while you were trying to enjoy an iced coffee.
Step 4: Appear Crazy
Fighting fire with fire can work. Most creepy men have no clue how socially uncomfortable they make other people feel. These creepy guys tend to classify themselves as nice guys. Any girl who does not like them automatically becomes crazy in their eyes. How could a girl not fall for their pushy fake friendliness? She must be nuts. Ways to act crazy are pretty simple. Talk about the medications you take, your past boyfriends, and things you would do if all laws were thrown out. Get these guys to think you may harm them and you can solve the problem pretty quick.
Step 5: Leave
When all else fails you are stuck having to get up and leave. The man may follow. He thinks this is romantic. His mind is stuck in a 1950s tradition where women were objects to be chased and the longer you chase the sweeter it was. It may sting your pride a bit to leave and let this maniacal individual take over the place you were first. These creepy men can be very prideful themselves, and seeing you get up to leave really means you did not like them very much. Unfortunately that only solves the problem of him talking to you. There will always be another girl for him to bother. At least you will not be around to see it.
