What if you dont want to talk to him, sleep with him or be in the same room as him, but he is constantly making himself known and annoying the crap out of you. How would yoiu go about telling him to take a hike without sounding aggressive?

I generally just say go away. But he wont, and it really annoys me to the point where i start sounding aggressive, like GO AWAY lol. To a point where i generally try to walk away from him, and if he follows me, i get even more annoyed and completely flip. Men dont know when to stop do they :P?

HAHA love your comments! I think its because they get confused with the whole... "When she says go away, - Dont." Sort-of saying. Half the time, we want comfort, the other half we want to be left alone. So i'm not surprised we're so confusing to understand. All a guy has to say is I'm sorry, and piss off for like 2 minutes so we feel a little better, then come back and hug us. And what about the men that DONT hug us? That pisses me off even more HAHA. When my boyfriend and i argue, and hes like i'm sorry - can i have a hug? I always say no- and he knows i like spontaneous hugs- yet still he doesnt hug me . Men either never remember or they're just thick when it comes to women .

Well, I would just calmly and politely tell him that I'd like to be alone and have some "me" time. Fortunately, my husband is very quiet and isn't in my face all the time. He works a lot, so I pretty much get all the alone time I could ever want...probably too much.

Just tell him nicely, that you need some breathing space, a time to be alone. But why is he annoying you so, such that you don't even want to talk to him, or be in the same room as him? If has done something wrong, and he's not aware, I guess you should let him know. Some guys are not really very sensitive - they may not even know what they have done or said.
