He kept bombing her with multiple questions despite her not showing any interest in him.

Handling rejection is not easy for anyone as rejection can feel like a personal failure and various emotions arise when one gets rejected. It needs groundedness to be able to deal with rejections. But some men are so self-centered and entitled that they just can't bring themselves to handle rejection. In a shocking incident, a stranger who approached a woman lost his cool when she refused to give him her number, considering the fact that this was the first time they ever met. When TikToker @maybeimlowclass was walking with her dog to her car in a Walmart parking lot at night, she was approached by a man she'd never met before.
Despite not knowing each other, the man assumed it was completely okay to follow her to the car and ask for her number. At first, the woman politely declined, but he kept following her, asking her random questions. “You got a man? You single?” he pressed. “I’m good,” she said.
He still didn't stop and kept pestering her, asking for her social media handle. “Snapchat? Twitter? OnlyFans?” he asked. Without losing her cool, the woman kept reiterating that she was good and that he could go, but his aggression and agitation increased every time the woman said a No.
“Where you going? I can’t talk to you?” he demanded. “Can I come pet your doggy?”
Probably frustrated from getting no positive response from the woman, he lost his temper. Eventually, he reached the woman's car, and confirmed and reconfirmed with her if it was her car. He then simply pulled a shopping car and ran into her vehicle with a lot of force. “Fuck your car!” he screamed.
Though the video came to an abrupt end, the damage done to the car can be visibly seen. The TikToker captioned her video “Being a girl first-hand experience,” and many viewers couldn't help but agree with her that being a woman is hard.
As for why the man got so violent at being rejected, it could be because he has got "rejection sensitivity." According to Very Well Mind, it is a situation where some people are a lot more sensitive to rejection than others, causing them to flare up for no reason.
"Individuals with high rejection sensitivity constantly look for signs that they’re about to be rejected. They tend to respond dramatically to any hint that someone doesn’t want to be with them," states the website.
However, this is in no way okay for the man to lash out at the unsuspecting victim. Sure, no one was harmed in this scenario, but there have been incidents where something far worse has happened, simply because women dared to refuse men and their advances.
Being a woman is never easy, and one has to be conscious of them and their surroundings at all times, and it does get exhausting. I mean, who enjoys living in constant fear?
