Do you guys think I'm overreacting?
So I was in town by myself today which is very rare for me but my friend bailed on me. I went to the library and was going down the escalator when this random guy, who looks like he's in his twenties, approaches me. He asked me what time the library closes which I answered out of politeness. But then he started a conversation up with me which I felt uncomfortable with because that never usually happens to me and I was alone with him. He shaked my hand and asked me how old I am and I told him I'm 15 which is true. He was clearly expecting me to be older and even remarked that I looked older and asked me if people tell me that I look older. By this time I reached the floor I was heading to and to rushed to the teens book selection when he asked me if I was busy. I waited a few minutes to leave and when I went back up the escalator I turned round and saw him in the distance and I'm sure he saw me too. I was panicked that he might try something so I rushed home.

How old was he?
Why did you think he'd 'try something'?

Yes I think you're over-reacting.
Plenty of normal people enjoy talking to others. If you don't want to talk, tell them that. He might have been trying to make friends or find a relationship, in the way people used to before Tinder and Facebook lol. You can't assume people will "try something". If they do, know how to handle it, but being paranoid is a waste of time.
