English term or phrase: I don't mean to be pushy, but...
An informal context, between a couple. It has to be kept as short as possible. I can't think of a neat, concise way of saying it.

Any ideas?
Thanks in advance.

"pressionner" n'est pas français...


Explanation:
j'ai tellement été "impressionnée" par ce "pressionner" pour traduire "pushy" que j'ai été vérifier : il n'y a pas plus de "pressionner" dans les dictionnaires que d'"infractus" (pour infarctus du myocarde). Toutes les autres réponses sont correctes.
