    Anywhere that I'm sober.





    No seriously though top ones have to be:
    - While with my (ex) boyfriend
    - While I'm already being chatted up by someone else
    - Outside Co-Op at lunch time
    - On the bus

    Whilst with my boyfriend
    Train station
    At the traffic lights- unknown to me, he followed me to where I was shopping and left his number on a card on my windscreen
    In a que at the petrol station
    Library
    On a trip at the lakes with some young people I work with- they all started oohing and ahhing- and I thought I might get into trouble by my manager

    When I'm clearly busy like studying or reading or listening to music or in a hurry. Boy back up.
    When I'm walking down the street.
    When I'm by myself and in a big crowd or public somewhere (on a line/queue...) and everyone's looking at this crusty boy or dirty old perv following me
    When I'm with family :talkhand:
    During class, like I'm sitting listening or waiting for professor and a boy or his mates pop their head in and hoots :curious:
    Church :teehee:

    I think the street thing only happens with very pretty girls. They sort of drive guys a bit crazy in the head and they think, but what, this the only chance I will have..

    Usually inappropriate and as these girls play in the premier league, and are unlikely to be hanging around waiting for some random guy to ask them out, doomed. Similarly if the guy has the credentials to pull it off he is unlikely to use this strategy. Avoid approaching love interests in awkward places..

    Never been approached randomly so I suppose all places would be awkward for me.

      The toilets are the most awkward places in my opinion, can't be any worse than taking a dump and another man hits on you

      What's a mischievous look?
      Iv been told I have a innocent look but once you get to know me, I'm the total opposite lol
      Although, on a night out when I have my eye on someone (I don't even know what this means) but I apparently give him a 'come to bed' look hahaha

        In the street its extremely awkward. I'm normally on my way somewhere and don't particularly want to stop and chat on the off chance you might not be completely mental.

        In a pub or bar, its far easier and less awkward.
