if you're out at a bar or club (or anywhere, i suppose, this just happens a lot more in those types of environments), what is a polite yet firm way to deflect unwanted advances from others? i'm such an asshole because when guys come up and talk to me, i usually try to be pleasant and polite back because i don't want to assume that they're trying to hit on me right away, but this usually encourages them. so when it becomes increasingly evident that they're trying to get with me, my usual move is to go "oh... um gotta go bye" and awkwardly walk away. i am very awkward, tqc, help me to learn some social skills.
