>>16788859 Well, I'm a girl and I often read in public spaces and I fucking hate it when people try to chat me up, doesn't matter if you're a cute dude or an old creep. It's not only rude but also pointless because if I'm reading then clearly I'm not in a mood for talking
Meh, varies from person to person. You never know who is reading and who is trying to get attention.
I was at starbucks with a friend once and watched a dude sit on the same page of Walden for the entire hour we were there, all the while staring at women out of the corners of his eyes.
Personally, I wouldn't approach someone who is reading. You're either bothering someone who doesn't want to be bothered or you're about to get involved with an attention whore - either way it is a bad idea.
>>16789136 I sometimes do my readings for class in public or a relatively public area like on the lawn or in the common room. It's also nice to go to the park and sit under a tree or at the beach and read on a nice day. You should try getting out more.
>>16789136 I read a lot in public because I'm waiting for someone, or I need to take a 2 and a half hour train twice a week and it's a great time to relax and read. Where I live it's unusual to be disturbed by a stranger in public so why would I stop myself from doing something that I enjoy, doesn't disturb anyone and passes the time.
To me bothering someone who is reading is like disturbing someone with headphones on, let them be. I find it really irritating when someone interrupts my reading on the train more than once or for a stupid reason.
