There are times when diligence is a turnoff. Like when you tell someone you're not interested, and they keep on trying. I hate those movies, where I guy keeps pushing, and that's how he gets the girl. I've never seen that work in real life. Then again, I rarely have known anyone stupid enough to keep going after someone says no. Those who do never succeed at anything but getting restraining orders. There's nothing romantic about persistence if she doesn't want you. Get on with your life, pursue a relationship with someone who didn't have to be badgered into it.
