Context 2: 

Hi Bryan,

I am e-mailing you because I don't want to talk to you anymore.
Yesterday I reached my limit with you. I already told you we are just friends, but everytime we meet you insist on flirting and telling me how much you want us to be a couple!
I have made it very clear that I am not interested, but you don't seem to understand! 
I am tired of this! You are so pushy
Please don't contact me anymore... I wish you the best.


MEANING: A pushy person is someone who insists on something in order to have what he or she wants. A pushy person is aggressively persuasive.
