Why the bitterness?
How you came to that conclusion I have no idea.That wasn’t my point at all. I was using it as an example of how I wasn’t overly attracted to her but I figured since my friend put me in this weird spot I might as well be nice and see if we click.

When someone’s friendly with me I at least try to be friendly back. I guess that’s asking too much or entitlement.

When you are with two friends and one says, “I got the blonde.” The other quickly say, “I got the brunette!” Then they both say, “You get her!” I look up and she is smiling with her one tooth. “Thanks guys!”

I’m not a fan of being put on the spot like that but I’m like whatever. Im getting a rare opportunity for myself so let me see if I can take advantage of it.

I try to strike up a conversation with her asking her questions trying to open up a dialogue she gives one word answers to everything. She literally wants no part of the conversation. I try one more time later on same thing gives me nothing and turns around after answering like leave me alone.

It wasn’t like I was blatantly flirting with her I was simply trying to strike up a convo like a normal human being and nothing. It wasn’t like she was some beauty queen either she was halfway decent looking. Not somebody I’d notice when I’m out but still I was willing to see if there was anything there.

I guess if you’re unattractive some people won’t even want to have a convo with you? Lol.

This is why I don’t even try with woman at all because the few times I do i get treated like ****.

hmm sounds like the conversation was about as exciting as a baseball game.

Maybe she was just there to enjoy the game and her friend’s birthday. She didn’t want to be subjected to some line of questioning. A lot of people really do get annoyed when they go someplace and some people assume that just because there are two people who are there and single, they should be set up. It can get tedious. It doesn’t matter if you are gorgeous or below average...

Since you were at a game, it is possible she wanted to enjoy the game and your attempts at conversating were bothering her. She was polite enough to respond at least. She could have also been uncomfortable.
Who knows really. You wanted to talk and she did not. I do not see how that makes her the things you said about her here.

I just prefer that to not even wanting to have a convo. Maybe I was raised different in terms of how to treat people. I can’t imagine being that stuck up and full of myself.
By the way, I once had a woman say to me ...

"I was a ***** when I was younger. I wouldn't have talked to you."

And another female friend of mine once said to me...

"Those girls actually talk to you?"

Other similar stuff, but that's what comes to mind.

Of course, it was a long time ago, but yea, that kind of stuff happens. No female poster here will admit that they would not talk to unattractive guys, but there are/were a ... plenty.

Could she have been distracted? Possibly. But I also think it's funny that posters act like people like that don't exist. Granted, it's not as common when you get older, but still the same women...

Every time a woman is rude to a guy, it's ... "She was trying to watch the game." "Her grandfather died." "You made her uncomfortable." Lol...

Because it doesn’t fit their agenda. Somehow it’s even being flipped on me that I’m entitled.

She was talkative enough to the people on the other side of her who she came with.

So yeah sure maybe her dog died or something but probably not.

Maybe she wanted to enjoy a ballgame with her friends, not have a conversation with a stranger.

Who was sitting on your other side?

The fact that you made a dig about her appearance proves it.

If you really were just being "friendly," why would you even mention that she was not a beauty queen??

Once again it was the point that even though I wasn’t that attracted to her I figured since she was sitting next to me and my friend tried to set it up I’d at least try to strike a conversation up and see what happens.

I wasn’t gonna say nothing at all to her just because she’s not a beauty queen.
