Some Guys Just Don’t Quit

Some guys just don’t quit.

You know the guys I’m talking about.

They’re your friends from elementary school. They’re your roomies who you like to pretend don’t have penises. They’re your colleagues, family friends, they’re a large percentage of all of the guys you know. And here is what they all have in common: THEY DON’T KNOW HOW TO GIVE UP.

Maybe you know in the back of your mind somewhere that this guy would totally sleep with you if you gave him the opportunity. He’s a guy, after all. But you’ve made it clear you don’t want to take things there and he’s acted like he understands.

Until it’s time for a dirty joke.

Or until he’s drunk.

Or until you start getting serious with another guy.

And there he is, waving thats little obnoxious flag of his in your face. The flag that lets you know that the ridiculous games have once again begun: the game of cat and mouse. That he won’t give up.

What is it that makes these guys tick? What is it that makes them absolutely resistant to being turned down by you? What is it that makes them say, “Hell, screw it, I’ll ask her out for the 100th time” after you’ve already told him that he is like a brother to you?

This mystery baffles me. I have no idea how to figure out this puzzle that lies in so many of the guys who I know. So I’m reaching out….do you have guy friends like this? What makes them stop? And do they even know how awkward they’re making things?
