Just wondering what most of you think when you get approached on the streets by strangers. I honestly don't know how I should react to these guys and usually give out a fake name, age, and number. I've been brainwashed by my mom since I was little that strangers could turn out to be rapists/killers/human traffickers (I know, crazy, but it's been ingrained in me. Too many horror stories from the news ).

They could be any of those things, but mostly I'd assume they want to take you on a date to get sex.

EDIT: Or try to harass you by constant calling until you date them/have sex.

Either way, fake number is probably best.

Men are pretty dangerous... They can turn on a dime. I've had guys go from telling me how he wanted to fuck me to threatening to kill me just because I ignored them and kept walking. If I responded to every guy who hit on me, I would never get anything done.

I have NEVER responded positively to this or given out my number. I think if someone gorgeous approached me genuinely and politely instead of treating me like an object then I would give them a chance... then they can treat me like an object if the date goes well.

However, when a girl hits on me, I'm totally down ^_~

All of the above. Except for the "bet/prank" bit.

Strangers can indeed turn out to be rapists and killers. The alternative is never knowing anyone. I'd rather take the chance of getting killed.

So far, I haven't had much of a problem talking to strangers. Turned out to not like quite a few, sure. Then again, I turned out to like quite a few, too.

To have this problem you have to be attractive to begin with. Talk about first world problems yeesh.

Guys: Do no ask girls for their numbers randomly on the street, it is stupid and will not work for you.

Your mom was right, you should be cautious. You should carry with you hair spray, a taser, pepper spray and/or a whistle, in case they get aggressive and try to get physical with you. Take a self defense class as well.

It's hard to say, but if they are just going up to a random person and trying to get their number, I'd be more willing to bet that they're desperate.

Usually my thoughts are this:

"Their intentions are unknown and they might be psychopaths."

and sometimes this:

"They're desperate"

Can't speak from a girls perspective but I can from a guys perspective. I've done it before and it came from a place of just wanting to get to know the girl and seeing if I liked her and if she had any interest in getting to know me. While yes there is in fact a sexual intent behind some of the interactions, that's because people find people physically attractive and wanting to have sex with people you find attractive is human nature. I think it's pretty easy to tell from a few minutes of interaction by asking inquiring questions about the person your talking to to see what the persons intentions are and whether or not you want to give out your number. I doubt all the guys are going to harass you, kidnap you, or even kill you that's just an extremely paranoid view and very small part of what can happen.

Also for people like me who work in construction where we don't work with any girls sometimes you just have to take a chance in talking to a pretty girl you see and see what happens. I don't ascribe to the idea of only dating in my social circle quite limiting in my opinion.

Guys: Do not listen to this person, my best friend met his wife that way.

I've never given my number to a stranger before, nor do I ever plan to. I wouldn't give my number to some person I met on the internet either. Why would I?

If I were a woman I probably wouldn't appreciate it.

They want to give you herpes or the HPV.
