Something like an encounter with a person or people who kept visiting you as if you are always free?

Ahh, there are really like that. It happens like they see as their good friends but the feeling is just not mutual so it's not really easy to get rid of them without making them feel bad. But I think once you start saying "I'm busy" they' might stop.
Good point, Astralrose! And, if they don't get your polite, obvious hints, getting rid of the person quickly (even if painfully straightforward) is probably best for everyone's sake and hopefully minimizes bad feelings all around.
Draining indeed! And it's not easy to stay cool and appear it's ok but then how long can we stay like that? We also have limits, right?
Sometimes being honest could hurt people but I think it's not your fault. It's the way they handle the reaction. I mean people should also think like what if I am the one who's being made a pastime would I like that? Hope the answer is no! :-)
