OMG: Sometimes I read about how good-looking people are approached on campus by strangers who have random conversations with them in attempts to exchange numbers or what have you. I am jealous of those people as I wish I could be that good-looking but at the same time, I am relieved that I am ugly enough that no one wants to approach me because I hate talking to people.

  1. I hate talking to people but this summer I've had numerous people approach me already. All these guys are really pushy and won't let me leave without giving them my number. It's annoying.

    1. I've never had a guy be pushy after clearly stating I have a boyfriend
      Where the hell are you getting picked up?

      I guess I can imagine guys being pushy in clubs, but even then, the mention of boyfriend usually sends most people away

    2. @2a I'm not 2, but a few days ago I was approached by a guy in SLC. When I told him I had a bf, he didn't believe me and kept pressing until I basically told him my bf's name, program, and how we met. USUALLY they're reasonable, but that guy was something else...

    3. @2b That happened to me too, I always just play along with it.
      Me: "I have a boyfriend"
      Guy: "i don't believe you"
      Me "he works out a lot"

      Me: "I have a boyfriend"
      Guy: "i don't believe you"
      Me "i'm a unicorn"

      Me: "I have a boyfriend"
      Guy: "i don't believe you"
      Me "it's your friend -generic name-"

      Me: "I have a boyfriend"
      Guy: "i don't believe you"
      Me "he's that guy sitting right there"

      Me: "I have a boyfriend"
      Guy: "i don't believe you"
      Me "he's a co-founder of facebook"

      Me: "I have a boyfriend"
      Guy: "i don't believe you"
      Me "he bought me a corvette when I agreed to go out with him, if you can do better, show me the keys baby"

    5. 2 here, this has happened to me on campus just when I've been going to and from classes etc. I've been stopped on the way to exams even when I tell them I'm busy and have to get to an exam to write. Several times they also don't let me leave without them seeing that I've given them the correct number :\

    6. This hasn't happened to me at UW so I guess I'm not that steaming hot or anything, but it happened to me a lot growing up in toronto. Seems like they did it more when I was like 15-17 (and we're talking men who are 25, 35, 45 etc... fucking creeps). But, to the doubters, it really does happen, guys will just not believe you or say it doesn't matter if you have a boyfriend [or whatever other excuse]. God forbid you tell them you're just not interested, they turn into a baby having a temper tantrum, except they're a baby who's bigger, stronger, faster and heavier than you... hence why we use these bs excuses in the first place. I have genuine respect for any guy I've ever turned down who's been polite and a rational human being about it.

  3. I'm not good looking but some guy did this to me... you don't have to be jealous. Sometimes these are just "pick up artists" who try this on every single person they come across.

  4. Dress slutty and go to a club. Problem solved. Guys will hit on you even if you look like garbage.

  6. Sorry if I misinterpreted your statement. I just found it a bit harsh. Everyone is entitled to their opinion and own mode of communication. Sorry again.

    1. yea no worries, but i just find that every time something's not sugarcoated, people just assume the absolute worst of it

      makes it really frustrating to be genuine and give a real opinion since you just get flamed for it
