The persistance of a man...

Why are you guys sooooo persistent. When you meet a woman that you like, you just hang in there until there isn't a shred of hope left.

Case in point...There's a man that eats in my restaurant a couple of times a week, and he's been flirting with me for the past couple of years now. He was respectful enough when I was married not to ask me out, and careful not to cross the line of innocent flirting. But when he found out I was divorced, he put it on full throttle. Every time he see's me, he makes it a point to hug me and tell me how pretty I am, blah blah blah. I'm not attracted to this guy, but he's pushing it lately. He knows that I've been dating Mr.X, and every time he see's me he asks if I'm still attached.

Well, today he came in, and announced to everyone in the restaurant, employees, customers, everyone, that I am going to be his wife. He told me that he just needs to get me on the back of his Harley and that I'll be his forever. He says that he's the last man I'm ever going to date, and that I need the stability that he can give me. WOW!

Although some may think this is rather romantic or whatever, I find it annoying. He went on to tell me that when I break up with my boyfriend that he's next in line. I didn't know that there was a line! Are there other people in this line that I don't know about?

Anyway, I was just wondering why some guys are so persistent, and others just give up after the first turn down.

What do you think?

God, who knows. There is also the hit and run guys..the ones that show interest and as soon as they have your attention they run..this is repeated over and over.

the give up after turn down are low self esteem, the persistent are just plain jerks.

Guess he doesn't think no means no K.

Maybe he figures you'll have to come around to his animal magnetism eventually, since (in his mind) you were "meant" to be.
Hope things work out.

Leaving aside for the moment that I suppose men throughout history have generally been very aggressive, there is something that I've always suspected contributes to this phenomenon in today's world.

Quite simply, these guys have seen too many movies where the man is completely obnoxious in his pursuit of the woman, and in the end she finally melts into his arms as they ride off into the sunset. Usually, these are billed as "romantic comedies".

So--who's really laughing?
