    Y’know those delightful rom-coms that stereotypical women stereotypically love? They deserve a great deal of blame for this behaviour. That, & men being stereotypically stupid.

    You’re SOOOO right. I’ve been reading this really great (also creepy) book by Gavin De Becker called “The Gift of Fear” and he makes that exact same point – the behaviour of the romantic lead is actually stalkerish, and potentially dangerous.

    The point that gets made is that a woman’s lack of interest isn’t enough of a reason to stop pursuing… if you persist, you’ll eventually wear her down and she’ll go out with you and you’ll fall in love – she just doesn’t know it yet. EWIE.
