Need guys perspective
I would like to describe a situation I found myself in last night, and see if I can get some guys' opinions on the whole thing.
I was out dancing with a couple of friends. My boyfriend stayed home because he was really tired. Was doing my thing on the dance floor when this guy started dancing next to me. I sort of acknowledged him, then went about my biz. Well, he started trying to dance with me. I just kept my distance and did my thing. When I sat down to take a break, he was dancing right in front of me, goofing off and smiling at me. He was being funny so I laughed along with him. Then I went back out on the floor again and he kept trying to dance with me, and introduced himself. Tried to start convo and such. Tried to touch my waist a couple times but I kept backing away.
At that point, even though I was enjoying the music in that room, I decided to go into another room with a different DJ. I thought it would be a good idea to remove myself from that sitch, so as not to give dude the wrong idea. But I guess I did give him the wrong idea, because a little while later he also came into the other room, and tried to dance with me again.
How could I have communicated to him better that I wasn't interested? I thought about saying, when he introduced himself, "Hi, nice to meet you, I'm _____ and before you get any ideas, I'm taken" but thought that was a little extreme! I mean, would I have sounded like a douche if I had said that?
What do you guys think?
