    Hi people
    I am very curious about something. I occasionally approach to girl who i find really attractive but today in the bus I didn't have the courage, because it was kind of packed and i didn't want to make her uncomfortable. Also in the bus is a lot of potential for awkward silence hehe

    So when i get of the bus and was about to go down the stairs, I looked up and she smiled at me. I actually regretted it that i didnt went in to talk to her.

    My question for the ladies on here is, would you mind if a stranger approaches you in the bus and starts a casual conversation to get to know you ? If yes how could i go about it with out coming of as creep or scare you off and make you comfortable with it ?

    Personally, I think I would mind. Mainly due to me being a little too cautious, and also becuase I prefer my bus journeys to be quite and peaceful, rather than making small talk with a stranger.

      This is true.

      If you catch someone's eye, it seems rude not to smile.

      it could mean, that she finds you attractive. I mean i wouldnt smile at a random girl i didnt find attractive. Other than that, just go for it. Whats the worst that can happen.

      She probably looked, made eye contact so smiled. Then she worried about how awkward the encounter was and how she thinks you probably fancy her now.

      I've got to be honest, having been in that exact situation, I minded very much. I was uncomfortable with a randomer edging nearer and nearer until finally sitting on the seat next to me and striking up conversation and asking for my number. I did find it creepy and just wanted him to go away so I could sit in peace However, that's just me. I'm not comfortable with strangers being so forward but it doesn't mean no one else is. Maybe try smiling back at her next time and assessing the situation, giving it a bit of time before jumping in? If she looks like she is being receptive then have a go, however if she is trying to avoid eye contact then its best not to try!

      You probably would smile at an unattractive random girl, I even caught myself doing it the other day. The difference is when you stare at them a bit or keep making eye contact- that means you wana bang them.

      It depends. If its a warm smile, I smile back, but a smile can seem forced.
      Generally, if I smile to a girl, it can appear forced, unless its a mutual thing.

      In that instance, I would have probably smiled back in a mutually nice way.

      That said, on a bus, I generally like to listen to music and relax. I'm not one really to be making conversation on one.

      I wouldn't mind It would be a bit awkward if I had headphones in but I'm a generally sociable person so I think I'd quite like it
