Cornering me and not letting me leave even if I express disinterest and/or flat out tell him no. Being pushy and trying to pressure me, like "come on just give me your number already". Heavy complimenting (one small compliment is fine, but when every other word you say is a compliment it becomes a bit overwhelming and doesn't seem genuine). Not reading my body language. Like if I'm standing there with headphones partially on, not really listening to what you're saying, kind of turning my body away from you, then obviously I'm not interested. Being too energetic/excited is also kind of bad. When a guy approaches me, I just want him to be relaxed and friendly. If he's too over the top, I'll just feel like he already has our wedding planned and knows the names of our kids. Not pushy, not over the top, not cheesy. One simple compliment is enough. Somewhat straightforward. Able to take a hint if I'm not showing interest. Not being aggressive if I happen to turn him down.
A lot of the time the guy is being to overly sexual and touchy feely, ery in your face and invades my personal space. Sometimes it comes off very annoying and uncomfortable and that's when the guy is being way too assertive
it's when I barely know him and he asks me for my phone number, email (not for business purpose), twitter/fb/insta account. I use those social medias to keep in touch in my friends and family. I don't share it with everyone especially some random people.
A guy acquaintance got too pushy wanting to meet me when I said I dont have the time. Then repeatedly called and messaged until I was creeped out. If he won't take a polite no, he does not respect my space.
I don't think people can be too assertive... most time when people are inappropriate they are being agressive. What people are calling too assertive and too aggressive is just aggressive, which I don't like.
there's no such thing as being too assertive. you're thinking of being aggressive.
