Re: Beautiful girl on train too scared to ask her out

The last time a pretty blond Swiss girl sat opposite me on the train she got her tits out for me. I was too flabbergasted to ask her out for a date. If she had spoken to me and given me the come on (and I wasn't already married) I would have managed somehow, even if she was speaking Double Dutch.

Seriously though, speaking from experience, I would try to forget it. Exactly the same thing happened to me when I was much younger in London and it took me ages to forget the "what ifs", I even caught the same train, same carriage etc before realising she was probably thinking... "oh, he's married, seriously involved, gay, clearly thinks I'm pig ugly like all the other men do or just too much of a wimp for me to be interested in long term".

I know (again from experience) that you will ignore my advice and do the same as me and catch the same train again and I sincerely hope you do meet up and get something going. I really am a romantic softy at heart,

One day I get to the forest and I find him sitting with a postal on his hands and told me "I've come everyday at that time for 2 weeks (totally swiss my hubby) and never find you, today i've been waiting 2 hours to find you, here is my number, if you also like me, please call me and we go out." Needles to say, I called hahaha

Don't know how to retrieve my post of a month or so back but I was watching the same thing on the train and the guy had a bag of oranges - it did the trick for him

Re: Beautiful girl on train too scared to ask her out

To all singles out there the train seems to be THE spot!

Beautiful blonde, nice tits and oranges (not necessary together nor in that specific order...)

Did the girl click? "Pfft. He chose the train over me."

About "she got her tits out for me" - out of what? Her hand bag?

Re: Beautiful girl on train too scared to ask her out

On which train is everyone meeting such forthcoming swiss people????? I've spent half my life in swiss trains, don't think anyone has ever started a conversation with me (well, no one normal that is) nor have I witnessed two perfect strangers spontaneously start a conversation.

I should really stop reading 20minutes on trains and start looking around, i must be missing out on so much

If you are on one of the two deck trains, sit on one of the long seats at the top of the stairs. There are usually more sociable people there.

Going by most threads started here, trains are just a seething cauldron of repressed hatred, misanthropy, and perceived violations of propriety and good breeding. I imagine that's why the Swiss exercise so much: to walk off the hate in order to keep from throttling their neighbors, which would also be a major faux pas.

The older the story, the bigger the fish? The first time you told us about that pretty unique incident, it was only one tit, the left one, to be exact. You kindly provided us with all the relevant details, which we very much appreciated.

Could it be that you are the guy in the cab of the engine? I agree, that's not a good place for reading 20minutes. Can you please give us your schedule so we can avoid those trains?

I then spent the rest of the journey trying to figure out how to ask if she was single and fancied a drink.

Alas, before I'd properly formed the verbs and tenses in my tiny brain, my stop had arrived and I had to get off. All I could managed was a 'Tschuss', which was very warmly received with a smile and returned farewell. Complete with a longing look from said girl out of the train window.

I've since been kicking myself. Perhaps she would have forgiven a misplaced verb or two...
Ahhh, this post is very sweet and reminds me of being young and single!

While love is, indeed, the universal language, you need to let your German teacher know that a special topic lessons is needed immediately!

Meanwhile, keep riding that train!

Re: Beautiful girl on train too scared to ask her out

Wow, I didn't realise my rant would prompt so many replies!

Needless to say the thought about getting the same train another day has been on my mind ever since. However, the conversation started because the train was late and she was checking with me that it did indeed leave at 12 minutes past the hour. Which had me thinking she wasn't normally on that train.

But probably, I'll try to catch that train again sometime!

I must be a granny-magnet. I've had quite a few elderly ladies strike up conversations with me on the train in recent years and, uncharacteristically for the Swiss, give me the whole run-down of where they are going, who they are meeting, how many kids they have, what they all do for jobs, etc., etc.

Hope the OP meets the beautiful girl again soon!

It was the left tit! And it was about "this" size (holds hand in appropriate position)...

But hey - you know the rules on here - never let the truth get in the way of a good story!

But you're a vet(!) You've seen it all before
