Hmm, upon re-reading the OP, I think you might be right.
I think the fact that he tried once is understandable, because even after the advent of feminism, men are still in the position of having to make the first move if they want to get things "out of the friend zone."
But the fact that he kept touching her even after she asked him to stop is worrying.
So yeah, Broomhill, don't worry, you did the right thing by staying away from him. It's important to keep yourself safe so that you don't find yourself in a really bad
situation with him sometime in the future.
But I don't know how good of a friend he was to you. Maybe you could just give him some general advice, such as suggesting a physical place or website where he could meet some women. Once he gets a girlfriend, he might be less of a "loose cannon" causing the local women trouble.

Okay, I think we both agree about the OP.
But just out of curiosity, do you really verbally give men explicit permission to touch you, even in romantic situations?
"Male Earth companion, you may begin touching me now!" lol
In dating societies (where there aren't arranged marriages), men are always in the position of having to "go in for the kill." And if we never attempt to get physical with women, it's likely that it would never happen (unless we are Johnny Depp lol). However, these advances should be halted when the woman in question shows that she doesn't want them.
