I was reminded recently why I don’t always enjoy going to clubs. A month ago, I went to a club with a few of my girlfriends. We were just there to dance and hang out; not looking to impress guys or pick them up. Well there happened to be this older man that approached me while I was alone, waiting for my friends to come back from dancing. He was in his upper 40’s to mid 50’s, and not attractive. He kept telling me a bunch of cheesy lines and asking me to dance. I told him no and went back to my table. The whole rest of the night, he stood within a few feet of our table, walking back and forth, staring at me, and occasionally coming over to talk to me, and he just was not getting the hint. He would ask other ladies around me to dance but kept his eyes on me.
So I went back to this same club a week ago. And lo and behold, guess who was there, wearing the exact same outfit. And wouldn’t ya know it, he came over to my friend and I as soon as we got a table and started again with the cheesy lines and even but his hand on my shoulder. I told him I was not interested. He still did the whole lingering thing the whole night, but did not approach me again. I think it might have been because some of our guy friends had shown up and were with us later on.
What do you ladies do when you have a creepy guy that just won’t leave you alone? How do you handle it? I tried to ignore him, not look at him, not engage in conversation with him and told him no multiple times, but it seemed to not be effective. I do enjoy going to this club and want to keep going there, but I don’t know how to deal with him. Thoughts???
