I'd probably stop and chat if I'm not in a hurry, especially if the stranger is an attractive female

I would chat to them because I'm not a paranoid prick. Society has become a festering pile of suspicious idiots over the past couple of years. No sense of community or neighborly care.

I would stop and have a chat, why not?

Obviously if it got weird or it got way too deep then I'd politely end it and go on my way. Other than that I'm quite happy to conversate with a stranger.

I'd kick them in the ****. Or punch them in the tit. Whatever is more appropriate. People only ever chat to strangers if they want something (directions, money, the time etc) or are going to mug/attack you. No one talks to strangers anymore.

At least in London anyway. In other parts of the country I'd be more inclined.
Lmao, you'd punch someone in the ****/tit if they asked for the time? :rofl2:

That's actually the first thing people often say when they're trying to mug you. They stop you, ask for the time, and when you pull out your phone (as most people don't wear a watch) they sock you and run off with it.

So yes. I'd punch them in the tit. Even if they aren't a mugger they should've worn a watch.
Well...that may be true. (Note to self: never ask strangers for time) What about asking for directions? Does that merit a tit punch too?

I'm not convinced your scrabble play is entirely honourable :sly:

i am actually quite disgusted by that accusation. if there's a way to prove there's no foul play i'll be happy to annihilate you again.

Well it depends. If I was sat on a bench or waiting for a bus or something and they were too I wouldn't have a problem with chatting. If they just came up to me when I was walking id think they were selling something and so just walk away

I always have my headphones on when I am walking down the street so to get my attentiom they would have to wave at me directly in the face or tap me and that would be creepy so I would just keep on walking.

What would you do? Assuming they were reasonably well presented, daytime in a public place, nothing untoward about them and you haven't got anything to do?
I do this all the time- the central dogma of socialising is about interacting with humans regardless of wether they are invariably strangers or not. Your close friends were strangers to you once, nevermind distant friends and family: therefore, the idea that talking to a stranger is morally wrong as highlighted by the societal rules in our oh so modern society, is fundementally flawed.
