    I'm guessing I am not the only one who feels as though they have fallen in love on public transport. I'm sure some of you have experienced that moment when your eyes meet someone on the train or bus and hold for just a second too long, or you keep looking at each other over the busy carriage. This guy was tall and handsome, with inexplicably dark eyes, and for some reason, I felt an incredibly strong attraction to him. Our eyes kept meeting as it sat opposite me, and neither of us looked away. When he got off at his stop I actually felt my stomach drop. It's a very strange feeling and one that only happens in a blue moon for myself personally.

    I know a lot of people say that they always seem to fall on the train. So I was wondering who else had had a similar experience that they would like to share? Annd.. did anything become of it?

    EDIT: People are correctly picking up on the word 'love' - that's a debate to be had on another thread. I use the term loosely. My main point is that feeling of incredible attraction in a split second - whether you call that lust, love, fancy, whatever, which a lot of people feel in these situations. It's more of a turn of phrase because there are many articles about this with the term love. Anyway, experiences?

    You experienced lust, not love.

    You liked how he looks and wanted him based on that.

    As I said, I'm not looking for a debate on love vs lust, I've chosen to use the word love based on articles focused on this etc (see edit) I do personally am cynical of whether one can fall in love based on a fleeting moment, although in this circumstance he wasn't really my type, and I didn't feel particularly lustful.

    See I think it's amazing how we can see someone for such a short amount of time, and remember their face perfectly years later. I know that guys face isn't going to leave me - and after discussing it with my mother she told me that when she was 19 she had a similar experience and remembers his face to this day.

    I think there's a difference between being 'in love' and actually loving and caring for someone. It's happened to me once, I was gutted afterwards!

    Why do all the guys on that site look the same? Where's the variety?


    I draw the line. That site is too stalkerish and wierd. Freaks. This site is an example of why cameraphones shouldn't have been invented.

    Just a bit of harmless fun.

    Haven't experienced a public transport crush for a while. I tend to get a few library crushes though. Heck I'm using the term "crush" loosely because I simply haven't experienced any kind of intense attraction to someone for a while.

    When I had to go to court as a witness a few weeks ago, it was a borefest having to wait in a room with other witnesseses and victims, but there was a beautiful clerk there who was like 6'1 and from the Czech Republic, and I couldn't stop looking at her for the few hours I was there lol.

    Not exactly the same as public transport, but y'know.

    You should've just spoken to the guy if you were so attracted to him. Why didn't you?
