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

This is almost as awkward as when you say bye to somebody and you both walk the same way...

Unless they give you candy and let you ride in their magical van

And he didn't pretend to text someone?

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...

Then how are you supposed to make friends

Op should have yelled, "I need an adult"!

Sometimes strangers don't know that rule and start talking to you. /:

But if I don't talk to strangers, I won't almost get kidnapped. Again.

In Canada no one's a stranger. We're all friends here.

44- Hahaha I remember that! It's from TFS dbz right?

Cause they're only there, to do you harm.

Normally,only the first commenter can say that

^you shouldn't have gotten thumbed down for that! number 2's original comment said "first" but she edited it

Beautiful girls shouldn't be ever thumbed down either...

Creepy guys with pictures of just their abs should never be up voted either...

34- Implications like that are the reason why *some* women think they can glide through life just because they're attractive.

53-there was no implication. 34 was very upfront with his opinion

60- The implication was that beautiful girls are above receiving criticism because of their looks.

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.

That actually doesnt work.... Some creepy old guy kept talking to me. I guess earbuds and a hood up dont give a big enough "**** you"

Your kidding me? You actually passed up the opportunity to mind **** 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

You need to get out more if this is how you react to a girl talking to you...

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!

That said... maybe you need to get out more, #5.

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?

If it was a guy it would be the same. Feel free to stop commenting anytime now.

79- I'm too sleepy to explain why you're talking shite point by point so could you just please shush and save me the hassle?? Thanks :)

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.

Wow, guys; there is no need to bully #79. She just looked at OPs situation in the wrong light; it happens to us mere mortals sometimes- we make mistakes.

85 - see my profile. And whoevers comment was last, I'm male, just fyi ;)

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?

And here is a classic example of people switching sides from bandwagoning to rooting for the underdog. Thanks -79 for participating in this experiment.

#96 I didn't switch sides, I just didn't see any reason to be mean to 79.

This is almost as awkward as when you say bye to somebody and you both walk the same way...

I agree. Avoid by going to bathroom or into store to buy gum, or turn cell phone on vibrate and pretend you checking voicemails.

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

Uuuh yeah! Having a crush on a complete stranger is perfectly normal...

Uhm... maybe he doesn't like her...?

67 - actually I think it is fairly normal to occasionally see a complete stranger and think they're hot.. :/

67- so you dont have a crush on any celebrities or anything then?

Poor creeper. Now you have a creeper of your own! That's so sweet!

Silence is only awkward if you make it so. If you have nothing to say, you have nothing to say.

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.

Poor Mexican cow! :( What? Whenever a there's an awkward silence a Mexican cow gets slapped!! XD

Well OP was the girl your sister, because that would explain a lot....

unknown_user5566 26

I fail to see why that situation would explain anything.

You know they would be going to the same place...... Ahhh never mind it is a failed attempt at a funny comment.

unknown_user5566 26

I shall let it slide, just this once. Just don't let it happen again. :)

Haha ok thanks, I promise it won't.

Well when that happens, usually what I do is say " Hey look it's a ______! " Then when she's looking the other way, I just run like hell.

I read that as a giant man eating a mammoth zombie, on first glance. Either way.
