    So I went to the library today just to pass the time and I was sitting there reading, minding my own business when this dodgy looking man comes up to me and asks if i know what time the library closes. I thought he genuinely wanted to know so I told him it closes at eight. But then he asks me if the book im reading is any good (Harry potter and the cursed child). Not wishing to engage in further conversation, i tell him yes and return to by book. Then he asks if the other harry potter books are good, and I say yes they are, trying to make myself quite clear that I wish to be alone, at which point he goes away.
    I'm just surprised and slightly disturbed at the desperate measures guys will resort to with complete strangers just to get the attention of someone from the opposite sex. I'm not even remotely attractive, and if this happens again I intend to make myself quite clear and say that I just wish to read my book in peace.
    It was just a bit pathetic and creepy really and it ruined my inner peace just a little bit. Not a lot, just a bit. I shouldnt have to endure that. And in a library too, of all places.
    Im so sorry you had to endure this!! I physically wretched reading it

    It would seem you have a problem with men in general, @sherlockfan. You say that you're unattractive, but I've often felt that men would have sex with anything with a vagina. I don't know if any other guy or girl has approached you in this way in a different setting and if so have you or would you find them pathetic and or creepy? Have you tried to understand why this guy or any other person would hit on you in the first place? Personally I don't think its desperate to seek out a companion even if it is purely sexual, it could turn into something more. Basically you could call me indifferent. If I cared to at all, I'd rather try to understand a person than judge them. If it were me in that situation I don't know what I'd think sometimes I'm up for meeting new people (making new friends) sometimes I'm not.
    I don't have a problem with men, men on here have big problems with women.
    I wasn't 'trying to understand' anything at the time, I was simply trying to read.

    No, its the fact that you feel the need to complain about your life and that this guy "harassed" its embarrassing when you know he only wanted a chat
    Imbeciles live on this site and its shocking to know that society is shaped by these idiotic sexists...

    Wait, did you just assume my gender?! Absolutely disgusting...


    Yours faithfully,
    Paul
    I posted about something odd that happened to me yesterday, just like thousands of other people do on here every day, you're the one blowing it out of proportion. Once again I never used the word harassed, you did. I never claimed he molested me or anything else, just that he creeped me out. And that offends you for some reason.

    yours not so faithfully,

    oh go and get that ship off your shoulder, it's pathetic.

    I didn't want to be approached by anyone I just wanted to be left alone. Can you fathom that?

    "creeped" suggests that he made you uncomfortable, i can guarantee that if it was a woman who spoke to you, you would've been delighted so grow up

    You must've studied at Manchester Met because your understanding of society is remarkable

    I feel like this thread has gone a little far
    Sure I agree that the guy just sounds outgoing and friendly and not creepy but jeez it seems like a lot of guys here are just jumping at the chance to b*tch about womankind and their double standards, which it doesn't seem OP even holds themselves. But yeah in general women will be more receptive to attractive guys. That's life. Humans are inherently flawed and inconsistent and we all judge by appearances to some extent, especially in a first encounter.

    I thought the thread was satire but then I realised she was being for real. He asked you about harry potter... In a library... May be annoying if you're busy, but some of the adjectives you used to describe it was harsh.

    I feel like you just come off as socially awkward? Also.... Dear females, not every guy that makes conversation wants to **** you.

    Yes he made me uncomfortable, thats what IVe been saying from the beginning, nothing more nothing less. what part of wanting to be left alone don't you understand? If it was a woman I probably would have been annoyed but I wouldn't have thought they had an ulterior motive.
    I can't even understand your last sentence, Ive never been to Manchester met, I'm assuming its a university and students who go there might be offended by what youve said.

    Exactly, it seems like every other guy on here is blaming me for their own shortcomings with women. Not my fault they cant get laid.

    the fact that you don't understand obvious sarcasm really makes it clear that you're autistic, like I said last night. the lack of empathy just reinforces this. the fact that you feel like you can report anybody for anything whilst you yourself aren't getting reported for your insulting language is just depressing. the mods must be feeling sorry for you I suppose.

    If memory recalls, last year you made a thread saying you were short and fat. That is literally the worst combination ever. Don't flatter yourself. He was asking about the books only, and definitely not you.

    Doesn't sound creepy at all. Nothing wrong with someone trying to make conversation! Just because a guy spoke to you doesn't mean he was trying to get in your pants.

    No need to be so rude.
    Says the person who called a man in the library 'dodgey, pathetic and creepy'..
