Pre Valentine's Day Lunch

I went to a pre Valentine lunch party with my friend Lily at some random office building. Wow, the odds were good, but the goods were odd. Guys outnumbered girls 10 to 1. Unfortunately, the quality of the guys was quite low (think unattractive, combovers, creepy, etc). It was quite difficult to avoid talking to these characters. We were responding with 1 word answers and didn't even answer some questions. We also pulled the "We are so deep in conversation we don't even notice you standing there" which did not work; with the 2 inches separating us, you would think we were lesbians.

We tried to be polite, but these guys resisted rejection to the point where we had to leave. Did they really think they had a shot with us? How does one give off the "I am so not interested in you" vibe to the socially inept?

There is no such thing as fear of rejection. These guys were different because they didn't realize they were being rejected. However, I really don't think any guy fears rejection. If they want something bad enough, they will get it. They don't fear that big job title or that really fast car, so to fear rejection? Oh please...
