How NOT to pick up a woman

Posted on Sun, May 30, 2010 at 5:59 PM

So, it's sunny and warm out. I've just left my house to run some errands.

Less than a minute into my walk, I hear some guy whistling loudly behind me, and glance back to see if it was someone I knew. It wasn't, so I ignored him and put in my headphones.

30 seconds later, the guy was pulling up beside me in his truck, driving slowly.... He was asking me a question that I couldn't make out. Turns out, he was asking for directions to a street I had never heard of. I told him that I didn't know the area, and kept walking. He followed, still driving slowly.

That's when he started asking me where I lived, where I was from, how well I knew the area, if I could give him directions and remarked on my "look".

By this point I'm really starting to get creeped the fuck out, after saying several times that I didn't know, and quickly find myself going into self-preservation mode or some shit. I didn't know if he was just trying to hit on me (in a creepy, horrible way), or if he was about to try and drag me into the fucking truck.

...My phone is in my bag. There's a house, four down, that has its door open. If he makes a move, I run for it. Luckily, it didn't come to that. I told him that he was on his own, and he finally seemed to get the hint.

I'm not sure which would be worse, though:If he really was just hitting on me, and thought what he was doing was perfectly normal and ok... Or he was some psycho thinking about trying to pull me into the god damn truck.

Both seem pretty bloody horrible to me. =( —Slightly afraid to leave the house ~ Trinket
