Why would they not want to?! ha. impossible :p
ok, I guess yeah, in a normal situation people dont randomly talk to strangers. But I was originally referring to a fresher's week on campus kind of situation! when and where it is the thing to do to meet new people! so I was surprised that people ignored others who were by themselves. But yeah, I guess it all boils down to the same thing.
well, I am actually trying a new thing now. it is called - being independent, and I dont need you to talk to me! I am so badass you'll want to talk to me and I will ignore YOU!
anyway... it seems to be working.
