Old men keep hitting on me..


Where were you when
All of the embers fell
I still remembered them
Covered in ash
Covered in glass
Covered in all my friends
I still think of the bombs they built

ignore them. confrontational people are usually A) looking for attention, in which case they'll become bored with you if you don't seem interested in them or B) doucebags who should be ignored by society anyway. that's not to say all confrontational people are like this, but anyone over 29 trying to pick up an 18 year old with any sort of confidence needs to get their ego checked. that's just creepy...

Yeah, those guys were clearly pigs. And lol at the guy lying about his age.

Unfortunately, it's hard for women to enjoy a night out without some *** trying to push up on them. All you can do is not let it get to you, though.

That used to happen to me as well when I was younger.Creepy old men would come up to me and some got a little bit too close.Like you I had no idea what to do and I didn't dare to tell them off.
I think you are doing the right thing btw,by leaving I mean.Not sure how or if they would respond if you told them to back off.If it's a bigger place you could just go somewhere else,but I get where you're coming from.
Feeling uncomfortable when you're supposed to have fun isn't a good a feeling.
Some people just can't take no for an answer or even have the ability to see when people clearly are uncomfortable around them.
