Talk To Us: When a guy asks out your friend after you've already turned him down
Okay, I have a question for the women:
After a guy asks you out and you turn him down, what is your “statute of limitations” for how long he has to wait before he asks out one of your friends? Now, I’m not talking about your ex-boyfriend hitting on your best friend. I’m talking about a guy who expresses interest in you, you do not return the interest, then he decides to express an interest in your friend. How long does the waiting period have to be for you NOT to consider him a sleazebag?
The extreme case here would be the guy at the bar who approaches a group of girls, propositions the first one he makes contact with, gets shot down, turns to her friend, propositions her, gets shot down again, and basically just moves on down the line. That’s a pretty dumb move. And that I can figure out on my own. But, there has to be some point where you wouldn’t consider it so despicable anymore, right? So… where would you draw the line? A day? A week? A year?
Now, before y’all start wondering which one of your friends I’m interested in, let me explain that this is for an article idea that I’m mulling at the moment (although, I’m sure your answer will be a good point of reference in the future should the opportunity ever arise). Yes, I admit I maaaay have done this in the past. But no, I am not planning to hit on your friend… yet. 😉
In the same veins, are there any other things that guys do that you consider uber-sleazy? Come on, I know you’ve got stories for me….
