WOW | Men Speak

how would you react to being hit on by a man?

Akaash Jatia

We live in a progressive world so there’s nothing to be surprised by such a scenario. My reaction would depend on the situation and the severity of his behaviour. If he is making me uncomfortable by his assertiveness, I would respectfully let him know about it and end the matter there. If his attempt to ‘hit on me’ is not too forced or ‘in my face’, I would ignore him conspicuously enough so that he stops doing whatever he is doing. To be honest, I think I would do the same even if it was a girl whom I’m not interested in. Why accept any kind of an uncomfortable situation?
