There is a phenomenon in the world we live in – particularly on the internet – where dudes just refuse to accept rejection from girls (not that it’s limited to these specific gender roles or anything, but it’s ALARMINGLY common). The girl will either hint that she’s not interested or even flat-out say it, and the dudes almost take this as more of a challenge than an actual rejection, and WILL NOT LET UP. It’s almost akin to a horror story – where a creepy weirdo is just relentlessly in pursuit and seemingly nothing will stop them.
Here are 7 examples of that very horror story…

3. The Full Year of Facebook Messages After One Bad Date by narrowstairs
It was a Tinder date, not a true blind date. We’d both seen photos and chatted a little.
Just no interest, I wasn’t attracted to him and found him a little rude. The date was supposed to be us jamming at a park, but every song that I suggested he snubbed. He just spent an hour showing off his bass skills as I sat there clearly bored and hoping to join in. He told me that I could play these two specific notes over and over as he freestyled. If I started riffing he’d say “no don’t do that, just those two notes.”
4. The Tale of the Tinder Doctor (with the recently deceased mom), by msmessyclean
So I matched a guy on Tinder. He seemed pretty normal as first, a few quirks here and there, but who am I to judge, right? Matched, had a brief conversation, asked for my number and I gave it to him. Talked two or three nights ago and agreed to go on a Wednesday date. After agreeing and chatting on the phone, something felt off. He was too offbeat and I began to feel uncomfortable. The following day he said a few things that didn’t sit with me. This is was the final thing that did it…
