Wow! This guy sounds really pushy. It seems as if he took everything you said you didn’t want as a suggestion of something he should try. Ugh. I’ve met this guy before. Not the same literal guy, but the same one in a different body. He sounds like a Nice Guy (TM). Which is to say, not an actual nice guy, but a guy who presents as “nice” in order to get what he wants. I.e. a manipulator. I am glad you called him out. But honestly, I would not have blamed you for blocking him sooner!!!
