First guy: when he hands me paper from behind he holds onto it until he knows that I irritated. He lingers around me and smells me (he makes it known to me when he does that). He usually asks to hold my hand if I stand next to him for a few. With him I know he likes me but he knows I don't seem him in that light so why continue it.
Second guy: he has a girlfriend, so I don't know what the reason could be. He really takes notice of me, I don't have a fixed lunch schedule but I always go around 3, less people in the lunch room and it weird one day him and guy four wanted to go on a break, I was grabbing my lunch and walking out while guy four says why do you have to go out for lunch now.. I said I always go to lunch at this time and guy two says yes she goes around 3 daily. I.didnt think he keeps such a close eye. I was on a diet because a doctor told me to be for a week for surgery and when I was off the diet I was more happier and he picked up on that and he usually sings this song that guy four made up with my name repeated again and again (I was upset at guy four and he made it up to make me laugh) and sings it out loud (its quite catchy but he is probably the only one I heard singing it again and again).. His girlfriend works with us and recently when she leaves to go attend some program, he begins teasing me when he gets the chance with guy one or four, like I don't say hi or just very small things like that, and when she comes back, his teasing dies down and then when no one is there except for me and him, he doesn't say a word. I don't know what to think.
Guy three: also has a girlfriend, whom we work with and they both superior to me. But he teases me in different ways from asking me stupid question to picking on me, by giving me a name because there is this shirt I wore. Trying to make up stories to scare me (easily scared). He teased me about me and his friend (guy five, who we also work with) dating (we didn't actually date but were trying to play a prank on guy three, which we didn't go completely through with and told guy three the truth). And then he would tease me about guy one and that we were together because I decided to take a break and sit next to guy one cause it was only me, guy one, guy three, and guy three girlfriend. He does tease people but I feel like I am the only one to this extent. There is this other girls he tease but you know that a more of a I don't really like you tease.
During that time at work, the only other girls that are there is me, guy two and three gfs and another girl but she is lesbian (she is more of a tomboy). Guy one tells me I am easy to provoke so therefore they make fun of me
Most Helpful Opinions
They tease you because it is a fun way to interact with someone with out hurting or offending them normally.
Often times people tease because they are interested and either want to test your reaction or build up a rapport/connection with you or because you are interesting to them but they are in no position to be able to go any further with you, like hang out or date.
Other people tease just because it is fun and amusing and helps to pass the time at school or at work, or because it makes both of you seem well socially adjusted.
If you are shy as you say, people probably will tease you in an attempt to be able to interact with you more.
Some people think that if they continue something long enough it will become OK or that they will be accepted or liked and they are really just hard headed, or holding out on a super long shot or they're rather dumb.
bottom feeders often hold out on the chance that they can harass or tease someone until they give in and go out with them or bring them in to their lives.
If anyone is doing anything that makes you uncomfortable you should tell them. You should also tell your manager. And also write it down with details and dates, so that if it continues or if the manager does not act appropriately that you can easily alert an appropriate outside person or an above manger or HR person.
Its not that uncomfortable to go to a higher op but it is really annoying and I was thinking about taking guy ones advice and jus let them make fun laugh it off and it will end when they know you don't care.
