    Every time I go into a club, I get at least one guy who follows me around all evening. Sometimes, they don't even say anything, they just sit with me and stuff, otherwise they talk non stop about stuff. It's not just me, my friends get it too, and quite a lot of other girls I've spoken to aswell.

    Now, I don't lead them on, flirt or let them buy me a drink, I'm just sort of polite and friendly because I don't want to be mean. I'm also not stuck up, it's just the way they follow me and stand behind me, it's kind of akward and kills conversation because I'm guilty about not including them - though often they haven't even told me their names.

    Last night I got really wound up because this limpet latched onto me the moment I came in and tried to follow me into the girl's bathroom at midnight. He didn't say a word except that he was studying econ. when I asked him about himself trying to be friendly, yet followed me around all evening, despite my best attempts to lose him.

    Am I justified in telling guys to leave me alone - or **** off in these circumstances?

    I find it hard to believe a guy would literally follow you around all night without actually attempting to talk to you.

    Fail attempt at ego boost is fail.

    Just ignore them and go after the biggest guy there. Then you can have fun watching what the little limpets do next.

    Bring a male friend, and as soon as something like this starts to happen, go and dance with him.

    From my idealistic point of view, it's not just "justified" to tell them to leave you alone but it's the only right thing to do. By not making this clear you motivate them to continue, possibly you even mislead them into wanting their attention (depending on how drunk they are).

    Men... well, boys, are often strange. Especially when drugs come into play.

    Yes, and I think it's quite obvious :rolleyes:
    Or you can always tell them that you're a lesbian, but I'm afraid some of them would find it attractive :mmm:
