    I received a call that my dad is ill, so as I sat in my lecture I tried to control myself but the tears started falling. The girl sitting next to me saw but just completely ignored me, and as I walked back to my flat in uni I was hysterically crying and lots of people walked past me, not one person bothered to ask me if I was ok. If anything my lecturer saw that I had been crying and when I went to ask her a question she just looked at me like I was weird. I know that if it had been me who saw someone crying I would have asked if they were alright and not give them a funny look. Why did people act like this? Is that normal?

    If you were an attractive female all the guys would have came flocking over; but if you are a male OR you are an unattractive female then really it is kind of expected
    Don't feel like this was appropriate but I'm not unattractive. I'm a tall black girl so perhaps intimidating to some.

    People are just selfish.

    One does what one can. That given, if I did see you, I would ask.

    Awww I'd have asked if you were ok. I'd probably be more awkward and annoying than comforting, but I'd have tried ☺️ I think people probably should tbh, it might not always help much but it's got to be better than just ignoring people. Hope you're doing better now x

    Hmm it's sad but I'm sure looks come into it. In general, I could see myself trying harder to talk to someone who was pretty (girl or guy) or who looked 'vulnerable' (wtf does that even mean tho?). But then I would definitely ignore some who looked like they were maybe sleeping rough, or that I found intimidating for some reason.

    Typical British people also it is kind of awkward I don't know if I would ask the person if they were okay I can understand why they ignored you it doesn't mean they are unfeeling of don't care probably just more reserved.
