You cannot ask someone out if they are at work. You cannot ask someone out if you've followed them to a remote/unoccupied/en- closed area. You cannot GO TO SOMEONE'S HOME UNINVITED to ask them out.

Being Alone, Barber, and Come Over: therealraewest
 A guy just came to my house while I was
 home alone to ask if I was single why are
 men like this
 therealraewest
 Okay yknow what I'm gonna soapbox for a
 hot minute
 When I was in high school, a man who l'd
 thought was the parent of a school friend
 followed me out to the grocery store parking
 lot greenhouse where I worked. It was dark
 and late, and it was me, alone, in a chain link
 enclosure with one exit and a register full of
 cash. He called me up to the fence and asked
 if I wanted to get dinner, or go dancing. I was
 scared and shaking and told him no several
 times, and he only left when I falsely said I
 had a boyfriend. I was very aware that if he
 were to come over the fence, or just wait at
 the exit until I eventually had to leave, I could
 do nothing about it.
 When my hair was very short, a hairdresser
 sent me to the barber's side of the store so
 they could get the back of my head with
 clippers. The barber followed me out to my
 car to ask me out afterwards. I was very
 aware that we were the only people in the
 parking lot when it happened, and that the
 lot itself was tucked behind the building with
 no clear visibility to the road
 Today, a man l've met once made it very
 clear he knows where I live, and used that
 knowledge to express a romantic interest. If
 he ever decides that he's unhappy with how I
 responded, he knows where ve. He knows
 what my car looks like. It is impossibly easy
 for him to determine when I'm home alone
 and now l have to live with that knowledge.
 Every woman I know has at least one story
 like this. My roommate had to be escorted to
 her car every night when she was a waitress,
 in case some man was waiting for her or a
 coworker's shift to end
 If the person you want to ask out cannot
 physically run away from you when you are
 asking, YOU CANNOT ASK THEM OUT.
 You cannot ask someone out if they are at
 work. You cannot ask someone out if you've
 followed them to a remote/unoccupied/en-
 closed area. You cannot GO TO SOMEONE'S
 HOME UNINVITED to ask them out. You
 are not being romantic. You are not "taking
 initiative". You are terrifying the person you
 want to woo. If they say yes, it is not because
 they want to, it is because they are terrified
 of what might happen if they say no
 I'm so tired of being terrified by men who
 think they're being romantic.

Message Today 3:16 PM You are gorgeous Who is this? Your favorite oil change guy The guy from Jiffy Lube? Yes ma'am I couldn't help but to let you know So I feel like this is a teachable moment for you. While I know you were wanting to give me a compliment, it was completely unnecessary and unsolicited. I am a customer, you are a service provider, and there should be no communication between us outside of that unless I, the customer express interest. I am married, we discussed this when I was talking about my car maintenance, so it can be assumed that I am not interested in any compliments/advances from you When you contacted me, I felt a little panicked because you went back in my file and got my number... I have other personal information, like my address, saved there as well. It is a violation of my privacy for you to contact me from your personal phone with information that you got without my permission. And now I know that you are the type of person to go back in someone's file to find their personal information, what is to keep you from going back and getting my address? There are men who stalk rape, and murder women by getting their information this way. For this reason, I assume there is a Jiffy Lube company policy that you are to never contact a patron on your personal cell phone for personal reasons So now I am in this predicament. I can choose to ignore your violation of my privacy and go to another company to avoid awkward interactions in the future (even though this is the place that I've been going to consistently for the past several years). Or I can contact your company HR and report this incident. Generally I am not in the business of ruining someone's livelihood over something as simple as this, but it is very important to me that you understand why it was completely inappropriate for you to contact me, or any other woman, without explicit consent. Capiche? Sorry about that yes ma'am Oh, and you didn't tell me what the tire pressure was on the rear passenger tire like l asked, so you are definitely not even in my top five favorite oil change guys. mbaku-babygirl: great-tweets: “This is a teachable moment for you.” She did that!!!!

 I have other personal information,
 like my address, saved there as

 for you to contact me from your

 that you got without my permission.

Fucking, Life, and School: DONNY CATES. @Doncates , Dec 11 I promise you dont really want to read a book where Eddie is doing fine and everything is awesome and everyone is happy. That book is boring and you will not like that book Or maybe you would. I dunno. I'm not writing that book symbisexual-disaster:*glances wearily at my 5,000 bookmarked fics in which everything is awesome and everyone is happy*  Honestly this just shows what a shallow understanding of story writing he has and I don’t know how he got to become a writer as a result of this.Conflict makes a story interesting but it’s pretty clear that a) he only has 1 idea of conflict (tragedy) and b) he sees no room for character growth (because anything other than tragedy is considered boring and irrelevant and therefore we never see characters put into different situations and he doesn’t have to write them react to anything other than tragedy).Showing Eddie and Venom doing well doesn’t even have to be the whole series (honestly I’d find that pretty boring too after several issues as much as I want to see Eddie and Venom grocery shopping or going to the farmer’s market). The point of doing so is a) character development and b) a break in the storyline from any current conflict. As much as peace/ trivial aspects of Eddie’s life will get boring after several issues, so will conflict. I’m really tired of seeing overblown issues left right and centre and absolutely no pause given to Eddie’s development (not to mention he’s regressing because of shitty writing).That one scene where Eddie’s speaking to V but seemingly himself when he’s eating noodles and V’s asking for a bloody steak? That’s the kind of shit I’m talking about. It’s literally 2 pages of Eddie speaking to himself, being very kind to V, then snapping back at a stranger who’s weirded out by him and he and V then proceed to have a conversation about innocence and stupidity. Not only does this show Eddie’s a dick in day-to-day life which contrasts with his ideas of being a good person and saving the innocent, it also shows V’s basic (but forming) ideas about human characteristics and personalities and Eddie has to do his best to help V understand innocent =/= stupid. That’s all it fucking took! 2 pages of a regular conversation between Eddie and V! Then you can get back to whatever conflict is happening!Donny Cates never graduated from the school of ‘I like these characters and I’m going to make them suffer’ and it shows.
