A woman has claimed that because of her good looks, she is constantly hit on by men... even if they are in relationships.
Conny Hawk is a model from Vienna, Austria, and she recently opened up to Jam Press about the difficulties of being an Instagram influencer with a massive following. The twenty-nine-year-old has accumulated over 391,000 followers online and consistently shares little snippets of her life with them. But as good as the attention can be, sometimes it can cross boundaries into what Conny has described as "scary" territory.
Speaking to the outlet, she said: "I try to be nice about it but it does make me feel uncomfortable ninety-nine percent of the time, especially because a lot of guys are super persistent and don't give up."
She continued: "It can be scary, especially when it's in the evening or at night time."
Conny also revealed one particular incident when she visited the hospital after a severe allergic reaction and the doctor who was treating her started flirting with her.
"Once I had to go to the hospital because I had an allergic reaction and the doctor treating me started hitting on me," she said, "My ears were super swollen and red, I looked awful. As he was flirting with me, I was just thinking, 'Jeesh, how is this possible?'"
Even though Conny didn't put in an official complaint, she did say that it made her feel uncomfortable about going back there. She added that due to her risque content on her social media feed, and hear updates on her life, people think they know her beyond what her Instagram shows. They don't understand that it's just one portion of her life.
"I think because I share photos on Instagram, some guys recognize me and assume they can just come up to me with no filter or personal space," she said, "I might be a model but that doesn't mean I want men harassing me every day – it's a job like any other."
And you would think it would be the single guys shooting their shot, but according to Conny, men with girlfriends and fiances also try their luck with her on a daily basis.
"Once there was a couple waiting for the tube and they started kissing. While he was doing that he opened his eyes and gave me a wink. It made me feel sick and disgusted. I can't stand it when I see guys doing that while they're with their girlfriends. I would never go out with a guy who was taken."
Apparently, Conny's hit on almost twenty times every single day, but after a while, it gets rather exhausting.
"It takes courage to approach a girl just like that but they should understand when no means no."
Remember that last bit of advice, folks.
