This guy stopped me at the store today to ask for my number. I said no. No excuses, no sugar coating. A straight NO. He tried more but I just put my headphones on and kept walking. He stopped me SEVERAL times after this. Followed me all over the store. Stopped me at every single aisle I’d go to. He offered his number, asked me for my Instagram, asked to be my friend, offered his Instagram, Facebook, complimented me non stop.

Finally, I was getting not only exhausted from this but also, scared. I had to walk back to my apartment and it’s already nighttime. I was afraid he might follow me out. So I try one final thing.

I say I have a boyfriend (I don’t)

He accepted it and left. That was it.

Men respect imaginary men more than they respect a real woman.

Seriously, fuck men.
