ARE PEOPLE DRAWN TO YOU?

    This is a question I'd like to ask you all. Tonight, I went to Starbucks to study. The place was pretty full. So I sat with my laptop at a table and was doing my thing. Time goes by, and I see the two women beside me looking at me. They were clearly talking about me. So I took my earphones off and they asked me a question about my Macbook. Then they struck up a convo with me, asking me what I did etc. Time goes by, and then the old man on the other side of me asks me a question. Except this dude wouldn't shut up.

    Anyway, so that's where my question comes to play.
    Do you find random strangers are drawn to you and will talk to you? Or not?

    I always thought I came across as a snob. Guess not!

    I come across as pretty unapproachable or so I feel. But if anyone is drawn to me, it usually is someone I'm not drawn to in return.

    lol. Well, I wasn't talking about attraction or hitting on someone. These ppl were much older than me. It was all innocent. I find i'm also a crazy magnet.

    Crazy people approach you? That's even cooler! Unless they're homicidal crazy...

    My general expression makes me pretty unapproachable, the bf on the other hand makes friends every where he goes. I in turn scare them away.

    Either they're drawn to help me, get to know me; or destroy me... still can't see the draw.

    I'm a nice person, but people never approach me. Even on public transport, strangers don't sit next to me. It's relieving and disappointing...

    Yeah, I experience that a lot. Especially when I am waiting in line. When I have new classes, I make friends pretty quickly. However, online no one ever really talks to me. Weird...

    I tend to attract people who love to divulge!

    I am pretty insular...introverted. When I let people in and get to know them they tend to get TMI on me. Do I look like Sally Jessy Rafael? Dr. Phil? Jerry Springer?

    Maybe I'm more limited with what I share so their candor is strange to me, but there are some things I really don't want to know. icon_confused.gif

    Now my ex...he gave off some kind of vibe where people loved to chat with him. Complete strangers! It happened all the time. In line in at theme parks, shopping in the mall, grocery shopping, at the gym on the elliptical. Nobody bothers with me...icon_confused.gif It baffled me.

    I would be off observing him easily chatting with anybody, and my inner observational analyst would be saying, "Vat ees theese? How eez eet you do zeese?" icon_neutral.gif

    I'm a bit happier being insular. I care too much and when strangers spill their concerns I want to help or fix things...when it's none of my business in the first place.

    I am always the one person that random strangers will talk to when i'm out doing something. But also i'm super friendly and i feel like i'm pretty approachable.

    I have ended up giving people full tours of our campus because they saw me and struck up a conversation. haha

    I come from a very popular, gregarious family - and I've got a certain look that people seem to like. I'm tall, blond, & have a good smile and a friendly, engaging personality. It wasn't always that way. I started out as a shy kid, and I had to make myself outgrow that!

    I fall into the same situation. Out of a crowd of 100s of students walking by, people that are lost on campus ask for an escort to the building they're looking for.

    I don't mind it so much, everyone gets lost from time to time. It's in the awkward places that I don't like getting asked questions. Like at the gas station. People will stop to talk to me while I'm at the pump. Asking about my car or what not... I don't know why its so awkward to me. Maybe because I have my hands on a nozzle. icon_rolleyes.gif

    Yeah, and it's not always a good thing. I'm covered in tattoos. I have 2 full sleeves and my back is almost done. So I'm sitting outside Little Tokyo in the food court at the mall, shoveling down some chicken teriyaki. And this little goth chick walks right up on me and declares "Oh my god! You have tattoos!" I looked at her for a second, chew the food in my mouth and swallow, and say "Yes, I know that." She says "I have tattoos too. We're the same! We should hang out."

    I'm a little blonde thing. People never see me as a threat more like a little puppy so yeah. I et approached a lot. I'm always the person ppl ask for directions or help on the street . Old ladies and people mums think I'm charming, but it's only because they are closet faghags ahaha

    You lie!

    The wife brings them in, and you chain them down. Teamwork!

    I only draw in the crazies (crazy bait). It keeps life interesting, but at times it's frustrating, like when friends leave me alone in public for five minutes, and there are crazy people talking to me when they return... or when a crazy old Asian man tries to hug me while I am just trying to get a damned metro pass, etc.

    I rarely get approached. I'm usually thinking about something, and that probably makes me look too serious or mean. When I do get approached, it's by a crazy person who wants to ramble on all day about something. The nice side of my personality won't let me be rude to them.

    TheGuyNextDoor saidI'm pretty approachable, but I'm good with strangers out in public or online.
    .....

    Yeap is that word approachable ,That overall approachable look! or omen I say, same here,the thing is on my ratio I still cant dealt with why Kids and elderly Aged folks just love to talk and mingle with me.icon_confused.gif just like yesterday a kid came running at me from nowhere at a shopping mall held my hand asking "wheres my Mummy?" like icon_eek.gificon_question.gificon_question.gif..its probably that characteristic of nature or Omen you carry which draws the type of what you are... where this people feels mutually connected.
