And to the OP's issue.  I think it's the combo of knocking on her door (instead of just having the conversation in passing) AND the whole "did I offend you" lead in that makes my uncomfortable with the situation.  If it had been one or the other, I would be more inclined to cut the guy some slack that he's just friendly and slightly over-eager. But the combo of the two (plus the weird shy comment) plop it into Leave Me Alone Land for me.
