JAMAICAN men's persistence and techniques when it comes to seeking love can annoy women to the core — when they are interested in pursuing a woman, it's often no-holds barred on the epic proclamations that can mimic Shakespeare. Most women simply ignore them or smile and move on; others, like the women below, will always remember the genius of some of the lines men will use to seek a date.

Two buttons on my blouse were open and I didn't realise. A man literally blocked my path and whispered, “Baby, me love you enuh. Suh wah yuh seh, me can give you a massage?”

Toya W, 30:

Recently, at the bus stop, a man was trying very hard to get my number. Then he looked at my hand and asked why I wasn't married as yet and said, “Beautiful, you know seh me woulda married yuh.”

Tasha G, 22:

My sister and I were shopping and I came out of the dressing room to show her the outfit I tried on. When I asked her how it looked on me, this guy who was eyeing us before I went inside blurted out, “Baby, you look good. Mi ago want you.”

Lisa K, 32:

One day I visited a friend who was ill. This man, whom I was seeing for the first time saw me and said, “Bwoy, baby, every time me see you mi rise to di occasion.” Every time? This was the first time I was seeing him!

Kimberley D, 30:

I was pregnant and doing some shopping. This man came up to me out of nowhere, stared at my belly, and said, “My girl a you me waa fi carry me yute.” It felt weird because of how he was staring at my belly. I just turned and went into a shoe store that had a few customers inside.

Melissa H, 24:

This man next door always sees me and says, “Psssssssssst, mi wife.” It's annoying. What I do now is walk past with headphones on to pretend I'm listening to something, just so I can't hear that psssst sound.

I was at the tyre shop repairing my tyre when a police vehicle drove up. The cop in the back proceeded to tell me how strong my thighs were, then asked if he could have my number. I showed him my wedding band, after which he replied, without skipping a beat, “So your husband don't allow you to have friends?”

Sandrea W, 32:

The cable guy came to install my service, and when he was leaving, wrote his cell phone number on the application and said I could call him if I had any problems with my Internet. “Anytime you need a friend, call me,” he said. Five minutes after he'd left he was at my gate beeping his horn again, and I went outside, thinking he had missed giving me some information. But his question was, “You don't need a friend yet?”
