Today, a girl started talking to me at the bus stop. After it descended into an awkward silence, I jumped on my bus to avoid further conversation. She got on the same bus. And got off at the same stop. I swear the whole bus could feel the tension. FML

The whole "don't talk to strangers rule" really becomes a problem when I find I need my electricity fixed or some other service I don't know how to do myself.

Makes me really jealous of the guy from Pawn Stars who has a hell of a lot of buddies who are experts in nearly everything...

Stranger danger! The danger here is epic awkwardness.

To avoid such horrible events in the future, wear earphones and listen to music. It'll stop her talking to you.


Your kidding me? You actually passed up the opportunity to mind fuck a complete stranger? You missed out. Next time, make them regret they ever opened their mouth. There are countless ways to do so, one of my personal favorites is to pretend you have split personalities. You can be as many people as you want! And if the conversation gets slightly dull, have one with yourself!

Usually I hate when strangers are genuinely being nice and talk to me but this comment^ makes me a whole lot happier! I can't wait for the next fool to try and talk to me! O.o

He didn't say this happens every time a girl spoke to him. Don't jump to conclusions. Small talk with a stranger under any circumstances can be a little bit awkward and descend into uncomfortable silence!

But it is COMPLETELY rational for OP to hurry to get away from this girl, be so tense from merely being in her presence the whole bus could feel it, and then run off the bus to get away?

79 - I'm completely disagree. It depends on what the other person said. A girl in one of my classes told me (unprompted) during our first class that she liked to cut herself to lick the blood and not two minutes later told me my veins looked beautiful and "ripe". You can bet your ass anytime I had to look at her during the semester it was weird and awkward after that.

I don't see why what 79 said would be wrong. The op made it sound like they were just having a simple conversation. If the girl in the fml said something as disturbing as the girl in evilplatypus's story did then wouldn't the op mention that?

Uhm...maybe she likes you...?

Oh poor Cicero has so much to say, but so little time. You see Red having nothing to say is not a good thing, or maybe it is... The ever prolonging silence creates tension and awkwardness between the two. Until one leaves, stopping it.

Agreed. I've talked to many people where the convo just drifted off and we went about our own business. I have met one or two who kept looking at me like they expected me to keep the convo going but usually a friendly smile sufficed.
