    I actually second Deadpoet's suggestion. Drop a note to HR and keep your contact with him strictly within a business context.

    This guy obviously can't get the clue even if it hits him in the face, so I don't see much point in being too "considerate". He is obviously interpreting your "niceness" as hope for him and his behaviour is at least borderline harassment. Stand up for yourself, you really shouldn't need to hide and be embarrassed about the whole thing when you're not the one at fault.

    I haven't had the "good fortune" to be wooed so fervently but if that jacket thing ever happened to me, I would have marched straight to HR and lodged a complain.

    i need you guys' advice...again.

    i have a VERY persistent colleague who's overly infatuated with me.
    it has become like an obsession and it's really affecting me.

    eg,

    1)he'll wait at carpark lift lobby for me everyday to go in office with me
    2)he'll come to my office and ask me if i want to dine out or whether i would like him to dabao for me
    3)he'll persistently ask me out for movies/dinner/a walk in the park
    4)he'll send me "have a nice day email" almost everyday, not to mention BD,and special occasions like valentines/xmas
    5)he'll come over every time and ask if i have time as he has things to tell me.then he'll start telling me those mushy stuffs and i'll just brush and walk off.

    these are just some examples of what irritates me.
    i've turn him down up front in the face countless of times.but maybe men just dont get it?

    and they say being loved is much luckier than you loving someone else?
    i seriously doubt this.

    any suggestions?

    Date his boss

    This could constitute as sexual harrasment in the workplace and you could possibly get your management to tell the offender off.

    I have a friend whose employee was experiencing something similar at her workplace and she had to take steps to warn the offending party to stop all advances or ship out.

    Jeanie,

    Before this thread goes south and off topic, I concur with some of the posters here to talk with your human resource department for a resolution as this may constitute some form of harassment.

    HTH.

    I guess time will solve some issues though it's been a year. there's really nothing much you can do cos you tried almost everything.

    However, i feel that 'jacket' incident is a little zealous on his side. That has to be given a stern warning. I remembered an ex-colleague of mine that received a warning letter from HR for sexual harassment. That worked for a while That could be an option if handled properly.

    Other than that, i hate to say this but you may have to get used to it...

    what if he REALLY gets it?
    then i'll be in sh!t.

    Being a third party in this saga, I do not think anyone would be able to give you any real help as you can judge from the responses plus most of us men folk do not have skin as thick as him and my guess is that he will not give up until there is a possibility of him losing his job over this or some hint of embarassment on him.

    So have a chat with your boss whom I assume is also his boss or the HR manager and see what they can do to help you calm down his ardour while still remaining colleague. I won't even dare use the word friend as I think he has outstayed his welcome ages ago. Hope this helps.

    thanks very much for the advice.
    as for the thread going haywire, dont worry.i filter my reads.
    for some people's posts, i dont even bother to read.

    There's no good solution to your problem, it's either one day he wakes up from his dream or either of you left the company.

    Tackle the waiting in carpark problem first. Obviously he must have come to office earlier than you. So if you come to office earlier, then you don't get to see him at the car park lift.
    my hour starts at 9.
    i already reach at 8.

    how more early?any earlier and i'll register my car as red plate so i reach before 7.

    thanks....

    i was really so disgusted about the jacket thing.
    but to make one lose his job.i think that's a little drastic.
    maybe it's me.but i've yet to train a metal heart.


    you guys always mention talk to boss, talk to hr.
    ever wonder what will happen after that?it's even MORE awkward, more embarrassing to work.
    not to mention if that turns the table around and he starts creating work-related-problems for me.
    sigh....there's just no 'perfect way' aint it?
