I feel this so much!
I'm pretty, skinny, intelligent, and nice. And especially where I live, I'm seen as the type of "dream girl" everyone wants to date and marry. Every man who talks to me is trying to ask for my number or ask me out. I get catcalled and flirted with constantly, and I hate it. It all seems so fake and superficial.
I really like experimenting with makeup, but I usually don't wear it in public in an attempt to avoid some of the attention I get. It doesn't work. I still get followed home when I'm not wearing any makeup. I still get asked out when I'm in a hoodie, makeup-less, and with greasy hair. Nobody seems to be able to leave me alone until I start yelling swears at them or pull out my pepper spray.
There seems to be no effective way to say "no" without raising my voice. My "I don't want a boyfriend" gets the response, "Oh cool, I wanna take this slow, too." Like, no, I DON'T want to take it slow. I don't want to take this anywhere at all, please get away from me.
I've wanted a guy best friend for a really long time, but every guy I've become good friends with started expecting more. At this point, I feel like I should wear a neon sign. "DON'T ASK ME OUT. I DON'T WANT TO DATE YOUR STUPID ASS."
And every time I reject a good friend, I experience that friendship breakup. I cry and am miserable because this person, who I thought valued me as a person, actually only valued me as a future wife. And I lost what could have been a lifelong friend just because they couldn't handle being in a non-romantic relationship with me.
