In the subway, girls only stare but no one actually strikes up conversation. At bars and lounges, that's another story. Girls are yapping their heads off!!

Yeah those drunken train rides at 3:00 in the A.M. are usually the only time random strangers talk to each other on the train. The thing is people don't remember it happening, so its almost like it didn't happen.

i've talked to girls on the subway, the last time was a few months ago on the V train, she asked for directions we got to talking about work and where we're from etc. but i saw the pack of cigarettes in her bag and it turned me off although she was really cute.

Today, my friend told me about a missed opportunity. He was on the train coming downtown when he made eye contact with an attractive female. She gave him a SHY smile. They both got off the SAME stop and she PURPOSELY walked slow so that he could catch up from behind to talk to her. Well, he told me he "froze" up and didn't know what to say to her. HAHAHA funny story. What are some good pick up lines? You know, without being corny. I suggested saying something like, "Hey, where you going? I'll walk you". Something like that. Or "Hi, can I talk to you? I want to get to know you" LOL meeting girls is funny

I've considered when i see a cute girl with an IPOD asking her what she's listening to. the downside if she says something i don't know, i'd have to fake it and pretend like i know..

I think the odds are better on an express bus, although i don't have any firsthand experience there.

This is an interesting post... I've met someone on the subway and exchangd numbers. She approached me and inquired more information about what I was reading and it sparked a convo. I guess the headline caught her eye (and me)*smiles* ...I' appreciate women like that it's very attractive. It was a bold and unusual move. Some men dont approach women because some women in NYC are always onguard and tend to reject you ..lol... When linked up and hung out but it didnt work out. We are still keep intouch from time to time. Overall, it is a good opportunity to meet people in general but I advise you to be careful.
