March 20,2017 A Day Gone Down In Vancouver History

I confess I never expected it,never. Today,of all days, when I was least expecting it while locking my car,a random woman who I've never met actually said hello to me! For the first time in my life. It was not a bold hello,nor one with a smile or anything but rather a word in a furtive passing and glance. I wasn't even looking at her. Thought she was on the phone,but had a look and she was not. Admit I was too dumbfounded to do anything but wonder in slack jawed amazement. I travel to California and Florida for 2-3 months a year and it happens all the time. Can be on a bench by the ocean,reading a paper in a coffee shop,hanging out in a pub and they come up to me on a regular basis. They say I have a nice smile, look interesting, etc. I can come up with only two likely possibilities: she was desperately lonely, or drunk/high. Nevertheless,this day will be remembered.

Maybe she was just saying hi to you. I'm female and I do it.

You were in Vancouver? Not another city? Not another province or country?

No one owes you a hello.

That's normal for 90% of the guys here.

Tell us something we don't know.

Awww, you don't get the attention you'd like to demand? Poor you.
You know, people usually pay attention to things for a reason. Start doing good work in your community, for instance, and I will bet you anything more folks say hi to you.

Smiles & hi's are common

I get them all the time. Maybe try looking up sometimes. Maybe even smile at people as they approach. It's amazing how it's a two way street. How often do you say hi or smile? Start doing it now.

I find women catching my eye and smiling or saying hello to me all the time. It's probably because I'm in my 60s, have a big gray beard and look like a friendly old uncle or grampa and not like a predatory young man any more.

Hey brother

Ignore the women here calling you out for this. No, it’s not at all normal here in Vancouver to have a random woman say hello, whether flirty, friendly or by mistake. It’s unheard of for virtually all men. It is indeed a day to remember.

@Dude, @yawn... these are the hilarious ones. Dude, you’re right, no one owes anyone a hello - just as no one owes anyone a degree of respect or politeness... it’s just common courtesy, you know. It’s about being a good citizen such as they are in other cities.
