2 years ago, I got in trouble for asking a girl out at work. We got along so well, so I thought we should catch up after work. She and her friends lodged a complaint saying that she felt sexually harassed because I had asked her out, thereby "breaching professional boundaries". I only asked her once and it was just for a game of pool and a bite. My supervisor told me that they were very disappointed in me and to never repeat that again.
Now, at a different work place, guess what? I have a lot of women asking me if I'm single. Even if I ignore their question the first time, they'll ask me again maybe a day later. They also tell me about how their friend thinks I'm very good looking and how we should go out for dinner. I told them that I'm not interested in mixing business with pleasure (thanks to my past experience), but they persist on trying to get me to date them.
Would anyone take me seriously if I alleged sexual harassment?

You are right not to mix business with pleasure. You are lucky that you did not suffer lasting damage.
I recommend just ignoring these women. Keep saying the same thing: you don't want to mix business with pleasure. Eventually, they will get bored.0
