People keep saying this city is unfriendly so I decided to try an experiment. I am not a Scientist by any stretch of the imagination. I decided today to smile at women today as an experiment. Of the 50 women I smiled at 28 gave me a mean look, 14 ignored me by pretending not to see me, 3 women gave me the finger, and 5 smiled back at me. This is a very unscientific study. I did note that of the women that smiled back at me 4 were over the age of 50 if that means anything. I shaved, wore a dress shirt, nice dress pants, and very nice shoes for the experiment. I wanted to look my best. So I guess Vancouver isn't that unfriendly of a place if you can get 10% of the women to smile at a random stranger in a wheelchair.

So 3 women gave a guy in a wheel chair the finger? You must have said something or I call bullshit on the whole post.

Why did you exclude smiling at men?


Oct 11, 2017 at 12:12pm

what a bout men? why haven't you tried this experiment on men? why is the onus on women to be friendly?

Vancouver women know what they want. They are not coy. They don't play games. If they are not interested in a particular man, they'll unequivically let him know. And sometimes that means a "dirty look."
Its unfortunate but some men just can't take a hint and need a harsher answer that makes it clear she's not interested. I've heard so many women's horror stories about guys who won't back off, I understand why those women you mentioned reacted the way they did. As a guy, I try not to take these sorts of things personally. You shouldn't either.

... some genius thinks that he's going to prove everybody wrong by try to go out and get a ton of phone numbers. This is getting old and not very funny.

If everyone did that, Vancouver would qualify as friendly.
