Male platy chasing tetra!

So, my new platy has apparently singled out a skirt tetra as his mate and will NOT stop chasing him/her around the tank! I have no female platys in there as I want to avoid breeding.

Any way to discourage this behavior? Or is it aggressive, based on the blurry picture I've provided? That's his usual formation, slightly above and behind. He's seriously chasing the tetra all over and I don't want it to get too stressed out

It's a 56 gallon tank with tons of cover, so I don't *think* space is the issue.
