    no no this guy was actually gay (for once)

    BUT this is probably the most awkward hit-on I've ever made and it totally made me feel like a perv.

    This hot ass young Latino sits next to me. I got a few side views and was like "good enough" then smelled his god damn sexy cologne and fell in love. I looked with my eyes (not moving my head) at his phone, saw a "grindr" contact and was like "hey sorry to embarrass you but you're cute." His reaction was totally lame. It was like the snobby "I'm hot and flattered that you hit on me but everyone hits on me so I'm not interested" reaction. I asked him if he was interested back (not sure if he was just shy) and he said "I'm just tired" which is a euphemism for no he's not interested. I said a few things that made him laugh but then I shut up because I got the hint and suddenly felt like I just accidentally showed my penis to a class full of 200 college students.

    But the worst part is that when my stop came and HE got up. Now I felt like if I got up he'd think I'm following him! So I said "I swear I'm not stalking you but this is my stop too" expecting a reaction but he didn't even look at me! I'm was like OH GOD THIS IS WHAT IT'S LIKE TO BE 80 YEARS OLD, got up and walk to the back of the cart and exit the other way.

    So....at least no one called me a faggot this time. But damn...a fucking Latino. You'd figure at least they'd have the guts to be assertive and say yes or no instead of pulling some kind of snob reaction. Oh well my loss. That's what happens with age. Also, it was an amazing embarrassing situation. Situations like this make me feel so alive. icon_smile.gif

    SUPER CREEPY UPDATEThis guy who I rejected months ago and in fact is one of the reasons I left Grindr was apparently ON THAT TRAIN (or is reading this thread) and somehow has remote access to my contact list and texted the guy that he saw me on the train (then denied doing so). I think it's time to get a new phone number and not give it out to anyone.

    That's kinda badass; I rate the balls of steel it takes to do try that on a train lol.

    Apparently, a study completed (read in an article years ago) stated that it takes a (straight, I believe) male 14 pick-up attempts to land a successful hit, on average...

    ..Challenge accepted, fuck being average icon_cool.gificon_cool.gif

    I'd give my right arm for a good looking guy such as yourself to approach me like that.

    I also think you deserve props for making the move.

    He was probably completely flustered (when he should have been flattered) and he just shut down. You didn't do anything wrong.

    Maybe he's in a relationship and was feeling guilty about Grindr and having a hot guy come on to him on the train brought it too close to home.

    Why can't I ever find a class like this?icon_lol.gif

    Jake Benson said But damn...a fucking Latino. You'd figure at least they'd have the guts to be assertive and say yes or no instead of pulling some kind of snob reaction....

    Don't know him from Adam's ox, but maybe he was have a really lousy day?
    Maybe he'd just gotten news he might get laid-off?
    Cut your fellow human-beings some slack, don't fret over every perceived slight and you'll feel better and give off better 'vibes'.
    Just MHO

    You're too hot to worry about being rejected by guys who won't even give you the time of day. Forget him!

    Well,, he probably was on a booty call and that was the train stop to go above ground and claim his prize.

    If said booty call works out, you may see him again! icon_smile.gif
    just saying

    Your behavior with the guy was perfectly normal and respectful. No need for you to feel like a "perv"
