When I was growing up, my parents always said that if a guy were to playfully smack you on your bum, he was being "disrespectful". I think it applied if he was friend/boyfriend, but no longer applied if you were married :wink: Last weekend, a male acquaintance did this to me and I was :shock: he also moved away too quickly for me to say anything. The thing that was frustrating though is that he has done it in the past and I managed to tell him at that time, I did not "appreciate" it. Although I didn't elaborate further, personally, it also suggests a familiarity which is not there. He is a dancer and younger than I am :roll: :lol: so it maybe that I am mentally throwing him daggers for no real reason. He is a total flirt also so I don't think it is anything "personal" but it is a "custom" that I have been brought up with and I do feel like throttling him/anyone that does that "without the appropriate licence" :lol: Short of resorting to some of the tips in the "Sweet Revenge" thread, especially NeoDevins "Handbook" :lol: , any thoughts/suggestions?
