You Don't Listen When She Turns You Down

From satanintraining:

"Not respecting my 'no.' I don't need to justify why I'm not interested. I don't need to have a boyfriend for you to back off. I don't need to tell you why I'm dressed the way I'm dressed. Just NO. Respect my answer, I don't owe you anything. I don't mind people asking me for my number or asking me out as long as they are respectful when I tell them no. I respect the hell out of a man that can take rejection and not do a 180 and get invasive or rude. It makes me so uncomfortable to have to deal with these types of interactions."

You Literally Pick Her Up

From goalieamd:

"Being a petite person, men in bars seem to think it's funny to try and literally pick me up. They see it as a way of flirting. I see it as a way to get severely hurt if I'm dropped."

You Stand Too Close To Her

You Harass Her At Night

From bardofthemountain:

"A group of dudes started loudly catcalling me as I was walking to my car one night. They were yelling out relatively innocuous things ('Hey beautiful' and 'I like your dress') but we were on a dark side street, they were very drunk, and there were three of them, so I was terrified by the time I reached my car.

I get the impression that this is often the case with catcalling and a lot of public harassment – the guys probably mean well, but they have zero idea how scary it can be on the receiving end of it."
