That's why you offer your lap to the girl as a seat. Everybody wins.
That will teach you to be nice to someone because of their looks, in the hope that you get some form of reward. I feel like you're the type to complain about the friend zone. I could be wrong though.
#2: He had no obligation to let her take his place in line. He ultimately did her a favor. Are you seriously criticizing the fact that the favor was made based on his arbitrary whim and that it wasn't selfless enough? An indiscriminate rule on queue placement is impossible. You can't claim "everyone should let everyone in front of them", because there would be no people to stand in the front. A guy found someone attractive, let the girl pass him, all in hopes of merely basking in her presence for a short while on public transport. It is ludicrous to blame the poor shy guy for anything here.
You'd be amazed what some men have said to me on public transport. Not saying that OP is necessarily one of these men but some guys see it as an extended period of time with someone who can't walk away so they have no choice but to talk back. Sure, we don't know what OP's intentions were... whether he just wanted to sit near her or try to chat her up, we don't know. But in my own experience men on buses have always done the latter and it's just flat-out creepy.
Just because she's pretty does not mean you should let her cut in line.
Just wait until next time you see her. Gentlemen and classy women are becoming increasingly scarce.
Would've maybe worked better if you'd got her talking in line. Maybe could've pulled a last minute number when you found out you wouldn't be getting on the bus
Had to click YDI because; the way this is worded has me thinking you wouldn't have been so selfless had the girl not been 'pretty' to you, and I personally would feel extremely uncomfortable knowing that some complete stranger specifically wanted to sit next to me on public transport. Sounds just a tad creepy, regardless of your intentions. Sorry.
Agreed. I get so uncomfortable if someone deliberately is trying to sit next to me. It's okay if there are no other seats, obviously, but if he didn't know the bus was going to be full and planned to sit next to a specific stranger, well, that's just weird.
It's especially creepy when there are plenty of vacant seats on a bus, but someone will sit RIGHT NEXT to you. I mean, I get that some people are just trying to be friendly. But it can be frustrating when you're giving off blatant "I don't want to talk" signals (e.g. headphones in my ears, reading a book, or talking to someone else) and random strangers STILL insist on sitting next to you and striking up a conversation. Doubly worse if it's a long bus ride and they insist on talking non-stop for an hour.
Do they not let you stand on buses there? Inside the buses, not on the roof... Fuck it, just choose the roof next time. You'll impress her sooo much. ;)
