    Okay so basically I was getting off the train and this guy comes up to me and asks me if I know the area and asks for direction, I didnt know exactly the street but when he showed me the google maps thing on his phone I knew a street near there and pointed him the direction. So he's like thanks and then looks at me and smirks and says "what's your name tho" and for some reason I responded with "I'm 17 okay" and walked away. Like I dont know what I was thinking?? How does being 17 deter or even MEAN anything. I mean he didnt even look old (25?). But at least I didnt say anything TOO stupid like "I have a boyfriend" i mean hes asking for my name not my number and a "yes" to a proposal.

    I should've said "I'm 14" :cry2: Maybe I'm overthinking this way too much but thats never happened before and its not like im gonna see him again xD

    You just created this thread to boast about the fact you got approached by a guy and you successfully rejected him.

    Not about whether the response was silly or not.

    I'm like such an awkward turtle O.O I should've said "I'm 14" :cry2: Maybe I'm overthinking this way too much but thats never happened before and its not like im gonna say him again xD
    Meh you were prob just nervous and didnt know else to say its fine. Tbh it sounds like the google maps thing was just an excuse. I have been approached with excuses like this before and it turned really creepy so ..
