would you block this buyer or am I being too paranoid?

Listed some designer jeans at a reasonable price for the make £28 plus £3 P&P. A few watchers but no bids, it was the first time listing them & I am not in a rush. Buyer messages to ask if I will sell cheaper so I reply and say I could knock off £6 which is a reasonably high % of the price. He messages back to ask if I will take less & free P&P. I reply politely with no thanks. He now has messaged me several more times with a low offer & says he will pay for them outside ebay etc. The messages aren't really aggressive but I am unhappy with the persistence and I'm a bit concerned to sell the jeans to him now as I don't want a possible problematic sale or feedback. Should I add to BBL as a precaution here or am I being over careful? They weren't listed with "best offer" option.

I would prob block him yep - if they are hassling this much now, they may do the same after purchase. Not worth the grief is it.

Report to eBay. It is against the rules to offer to pay outside of eBay. And block too. Some people are so cheeky.
