    This, and let me guess. Are you in your 40s, posing younger, about to release an album and make it big as a musician? :holmes:

    Or because busking makes you appear poor. Might take talent but your still asking for people's spare change

    Most buskers are perfectly nice people, hell they often own houses and have families and do it for the fun rather than the spare change, I know a couple and have a chat when I see them in town.

    We once bought bouquets of roses and were giving flowers to strangers (looking back probably a little strange... but it was fun and there isn't much else to do in Winchester), and my friend gave a rose to a busker. He then invited her to one of his gigs...
    Cute. They saw eachother for a bit but it didn't work out.

    But so yeah, some girls clearly would.

    No LOL, I do it because I enjoy it and I need the cash.

    Maybe true, but it's a fun way to make a little cash!

    Why not, what stops you? Fear of rejection?

    So because you don't like being approached in the street, you assume nobody else does?

    Out of interest, why don't you like it?

    I wouldn't say that. There's been loads of threads on this before but I'd say the majority of girls don't appreciate being approached in the street.

    For me, I just don't like it, it feels like I'm being hounded. I'm much more at ease being approached in a bar /pub.

    How are you exactly going to get raped in a busy city centre where people busk? Quite an irrational fear, aye?

    No, never.
    Why not?

    Why would I? I'm not desperate enough to make passes at random strangers in the street, whether they're good looking or not.
