VIOLATING SOMEONE’S SPACE IS NEVER OKAY.
Read the signs. If someone’s not into you, it's not an indication to try harder. You should never make someone feel obligated to interact with you and you should never feel obligated to interact with someone else. It’s important to always communicate openly. Whenever in doubt, consider asking, “is this okay?” And if you ever see someone violating someone else’s space, say something. Creating a consensual future is something we have to do together.
