So I go to a local pub, I want to read my book over a beer and have some dinner- I'm single and my mates are out of town and don't fancy sitting at home eating a meal for one alone. As I'm happily enjoying my dinner I notice a guy by the bar checking me out, I just want to be left alone at this point so I just ignore him and carry on eating my food. He continues to glance over at me, trying to get my attention I assume, I am getting a little irritated so I finish my food and leave. I still fancy another beer whilst I engross myself in my book so I head to a different bar, order a beer, sit down and happily swig down my beer whilst I read. This is great, no ones bothering me, until a few minutes later when the same guy appears beside me and places a bottle of beer on the table, says the barmaid has told him to buy me a drink as we're both alone. I've already decided I ain't drinking it and need to make a run for it. I smile politely and excuse myself to the ladies room, only I spotted a guy at the bar who seemed like an alright kinda guy, I had noticed him on my way in chatting with his mates. So I smile at him and get a smile back, approach him and ask him if he'll be my wing man and **** block this guy whilst I finish my beer, he's amused and agrees so we go out to the garden area and chat over a beer- actually had a blast, and several drinks later I enjoying being in the pub and had forgotten about reading my book, this was Wednesday, fast forward to Saturday...
I'm in HMV browsing the DVD's when I suddenly hear my name yelled across the store, it's the guy from the pub grinning at me demented and waving excitedly (not wing man the guy that creep-ed me out). I go into panic mode, what the hell do I do? The only logical thing I can think of, duck and browse the bottom shelve whilst practically commando crawling to the end of the aisle, I swear if I had just done one of those forward rolls I would have been out the door and home safe, but no...This guys pretty swift and is now standing next to me! Okay so I can't just ignore him, I grab for a random DVD and stand bolt upright, try the confident don't mess with me I armed with a DVD pose as he stretches out his hand and makes a grab for my arm, he's still smiling- clearly oblivious to my horror at his sudden appearance.
What do I do? Look at the DVD act distracted - I am, it turns out I'm holding a copy of The Lost Boys 3... Now I'm just mortified by my selection as I recall how fantastic The Lost Boys was and how distraught I was by the sequel... Now theirs a part 3, WTF! Are you kidding me, please Cory Feldman, don't suck the life out of your glory days with a franchise, Okay back to the guy, his names Ray and he's now asking me where I disappeared to on Wednesday... I'm sorry but is failing to re-appear from the loo not hint enough? Clearly not!
I apologies, say I bumped into a few mates, he then asks me if I want to go for a drink now. I make my excuses, he leaves and I feel terrible.

Just say you aren't really in a daiting place... Lead him to think you just broke up and aren't ready to jump back in. That way you have a reason but it isn't him... I have had that said to me and it's less crushing then I don't like you...0
