I'm 24 and I do seem to get hit on by older guys. By that, I mean guys in their 40s and 50s (aka guys that are old enough to be my father)
I do respectfully turn them away, but it's like every time I do, I'm given a huge amount of grief over it. Regardless of how nicely I decline their attempts to court me, they get either angry or overly sad.
I do understand that not many people can take rejection all too well (and I'm one of them) but is it right that I'm made out to be this horrid, shallow person when I reject these guys?
I know I should have thicker skin, but I can't help but feel a little bad anytime this happens.
