Hannah, aged 34
3pm midweek. A man in his 40s/50s came out of the corner store as I walked past and commented on the lovely weather. I agreed that it was a beautiful day as I continued to walk past. He then said that “a beautiful girl like (me)” should go get a pint with him. I ignored him after this point. He continued to suggest we go somewhere as I walked away across the street. He followed me and started saying that I wasn’t “even answering him” and that he was “only joking”. At this point I had reached an alleyway that I had to go down to get to my car. I didn’t know how close he was as I didn’t want to look back. I tried to get my keys ready quickly and started to think what I would do if he followed me down the alley into the car park (which has chain link fence around and only one entrance/exit.) When I looked back as I reached the car park entrance I saw that he didn’t follow me down the alley.
