When a man tells a woman that he is not interested in her in a romantic manner, but instead of going away, the woman hangs on, pops up uninvited, and helps with anything the man needs. She uses these tactics in hopes that she can wear down the man's resolve, ensuing the relationship she wanted. Sometimes the woman will also resort to the drunken hook-up in addition to the wear down to help her cause.

You can find this method being used by the girl cleaning up after a frat/sports team party, the woman staying late at work helping with someone else's project, and the chick at the end of the bar asking the bartender if he needs ice.
She showed up at the bar again last night.. I know she's pulling the wear down on me.

In the movie Van Wilder, Jeannie was totally pulling the wear down on Richard.

We all know that when she says she was "in the neighborhood", it means she's just trying to keep the wear down going on him.

When a man/woman has someone that is interested in them but the feelings are not reciprocated. Instead of moving on and finding someone new the interested man/woman sticks around. He/She will continue to do things for their crush like support them during other failed relationships, buying them things, trying to be around them a lot, taking them on dates that "aren't really dates". They might continue to profess their feelings for said crush over and over persistently until the crush realizes that there is no one out there that is more perfect for them than the person that they have been rejecting. Then and only then have They have been wore down.....
I kept telling him I didn't like him like that, but I think I am changing my my mind. He is wearing me down.
