[Serious] Ladies, what's the creepiest thing a guy has done that was meant to be 'romantic'?

What is with the "frigid bitch" thing? I mean, when someone wasn't interested in me, but I liked them, sure, it stung a little. That doesn't mean I'm going to call them an asshole. People really need to learn how to take rejection. It's not a big deal.

One guy I went on a couple dates with started raising some red flags rather quickly. We were first years in university and despite going to different schools had met because of mutual friends. Halloween was coming up and he wanted to go to the campus bar that night. I had a test the next day and wanted to stay home and study. He was so pushy about it I finally said, sure, as long as I was home by 12.

He shows up late, and I'm now hanging out in costume (a batman mask and black clothes, I was not as enthusiastic as I usually am) with my guy friends across the hall. He walks in all angry and says, "Let's go."

To be polite and not make a scene, I raise my eyebrows at my friends and we head out. As soon as we're in the elevator his arm is around me super tight. He wants to walk this way the whole way to the bar and spends the rest of the time holding my hand (not affectionately, more like I'm a thing he might lose). I don't remember much about the night other than I was so annoyed by the time we left that I decide I'm putting an end to this.

I invite him in and very nicely say that I don't think we have much in common and I don't think it's going to work out (I have 3 roommates who are home so I'm not worried).

Well, he starts shouting all sorts of things. Is this because of my "friends" across the hall? How could I possibly know it's not working out? I don't even know him! During shouting breaks I'm very calmly saying that I'm not trying to hurt his feelings, I want him to have a chance to find someone who is really into him. Then the insults start to fly. I'm a slut, I'm a frigid bitch, etc.

I ask him to leave, and thankfully he does, still yelling the whole way.

I suppose it's all about saving face? It's my bad personality not a rejection of yours? But doesn't behaving this way damage your image and therefore you lose face? I don't understand these types of reactions.

Anyway, sorry you got yelled at by a weirdo too.
