In Need Of Help Please!

Please read my thread in the Fillies section (below this one in the main Index) regarding how to deal with creepy guys.
I would love any and all input.

If it gets worse, tell someone. ;) It can turn into harassment, you'd be surprised. You're way younger than him; you'd think he'd know better! :roll:
But yeah; I hope he stops. Just don't act interested in what he has to say; then he should move on.

Ride more, worry less.

Don't bother trying to be nice. Be firm and if necessary be rude. Tell him flat out you don't like those comments. Next time he says anything inappropriate, stand firm, look at him firmly in the eyes and tell him, "Don't talk to me like that. It's not appropriate and I won't accept it." No please, no thank you, no I'd appreciate it... nothing nice. If he offers freebies, same thing, "No, I don't accept inappropriate gifts." Lots of firm, clear no baloney answers. Get harsher if if doesn't stop.

for inappropriate language-appy

Edited to add:
Sorry about that, all! I'll try to be more thoughtful of others and think of who might be reading here.

Yep I bought a wedding band and wear it all the time now - I only ever take it off to put lotion on my hands haha.
I always tell Rich when I'm going to the barn and to come looking for me if I'm not back by a certain time. I have the creeper's address now and I will give it to Rich in case I ever go "missing."

I don't feel like I'm over-reacting, which is odd - but this guy just hit a nerve with me...
