Disconnected in Brooklyn on Craigslist: Subway Come Ons
What's the best way to talk to a girl on the subway? - m4w - 25An interesting dilemma, and to judge by the volume of weekly Missed Connections on the train, a conundrum indeed.
Girls, your perspectives please:
On the subway, you make eye contact a couple times, enough so it's totally clear you're interested or curious or aware of each other's existence in the world--that is, enough to make a guy see it as worth the effort of approaching you. So what's the best thing for him to say?
"What are you listening to/reading?" (obviously only works if you are listening to an iPod or reading a book or whatever...)
"What's your name?" (argh, so blatant)
"Hey, does this train stop at _____?" (so weak)
"I like your earrings/shirt/boots/whatever." (again, so blatant)
"Do I know you from somewhere?" (bold, a little strange)
Some witty, random comment about something in the immediate surroundings...
