Now this is a really good read….
Schrödinger’s Rapist: or a guy’s guide to approaching strange women without being maced
It basically sums up why I don’t approach unfamiliar women under any circumstances. My social and non-verbal communication skills are so terrible that I’ve always assumed that any woman I see (or rather, who sees me) will assume that I’m some kind of monster, and so – out of respect – I go out of my way not to inflict myself on them.
It’s nice to read some confirmation that I’m not completely mad after all 🙂
