Per the post below, I thought it would be useful to link this hilarious sketch from Inside Amy Schumer that shows what happens when you condition boys to believe it’s funny or cute to pester women into going on pity dates with you.

It’ all starts with backslaps and attaboys to the teenager who asks a complete stranger he’s never had a single conversation with out, based on nothing but liking the way she looks. But it ends with him dopily hanging around a woman pretending she’s his girlfriend because he refuses to take a hint. Don’t let this be your son, folks. Teach boys to hold out for someone who actually likes them back.
