How to get rid of an unwanted suitor

(HealthDayNews) -- If you're a woman trying to get rid of an unwanted suitor, ignore him. He'll get angry, but he'll leave sooner -- and you'll have fewer scenes to cope with.

On the other hand, if you tell a man you still want to be friends, he is more likely to come back and keep trying for a date.

That's the advice from New York's Ithaca College, which surveyed 135 female undergraduates on love and their dating habits. The "most experienced" women simply waited for the men to lose interest. The "less experienced" women tried to be kind and to "save face."

Which co-eds were most likely to attract unwanted affection? The women who believed in love at first sight and were more likely to perceive romantic intentions in others.

Who were the least pursued women? Those who scored high on self-sacrificing love were least likely to attract unwanted suitors.
