Geez... Did you even go to school?
Yes, and I'm able to drool and walk simultaneously, thank you. I'll be gimping around about 8. Maybe you could toss a few towels down? There's a good lad.

Dear Paulie

If she captured your heart for those very brief passing seconds then...please take the same train next week! See if fate will cross your path....is she is not there you still have plenty of well wishes here on the forum to support you! Chances are you will meet another lovely girl similiar to how she looked like...maybe there is one you already have met, at your workplace, a friend? sometimes we have to really open our eyes as people can shut down in the manic of living day to day!

But i really hope that you keep us all informed when someone wonderful captures your heart again...remember beauty is skin deep!
Well it's now a few days later and she is still on my mind - or rather, the fact that I didn't speak to her. As for catching the same train this weekend, I can't as I will be in the UK :-( But perhaps the week after I might...just to satisfy my curiosity.

Of course, as my Dad would helpfully say about her smiling at me: 'she probably had wind son'.

Just for your information, people here in Switzerland are often polite. They will greet and smile before they sit next to you or across you on a train or a restaurant and also say Bye when they leave. It should never be mistaken for flirting or making a pass or showing interest.

I could have been in some interesting situations myself but my sound judgement, patience, humility and above all wisdom saved my day.

I agree. You should keep in mind the culture difference, mistakes are easely made. Swiss girls have been known to get their b@@bs out in the train (right grumpy ?) so a simple smile means nothing.

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

I have a similar story...
I was on the last train back from Bern at the weekend, pissed as a c**t and some half-dressed slapper sat opposite me. I caught her eye, literally, it was made of glass, and she flashed me a bit of nip. I wiped the dribble off my chin and gestured to the crap-house door. She winked and nodded knowingly. So off we went and within seconds we were shagging like rabbits on Viagara. It wasn't the most romantic of venues, someone's turd was still lying in the pan, but she didn't seem to mind being bent over it. She was a bit noisy though, so I had to shove some tissues in her mouth to keep her quiet. She seemd to enjoy it though. She even offered me her scarf to clean myself up. Once we'd finished we went our separate ways. Hardly an intelligible word passed between us the entire time.
I plan to be on the same train on Saturday, I just hope the itching has eased a bit by then though....

Why do you guys pick on me all the time? What have I done to you? Just because I am sweet, simple and innocent?

I liked it too, sorry about being a bit vocal but it was nice of you to give me some tissues. How did you like my costume ?

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

I had a tournament in Geneva about a year ago.
On my way back I fell asleep.. deep. In one of the stops I noticed someone sat infront of me, so I kinda opened 1 eye and saw a swedish type blonde girl. . But, I remembered that I was so tired that I probably was either snoring or drooling (or a combination of both) as I usually do when I pass out.

So i just fake being asleep until she left.

No wonder you are single. Dont think you're going to find a gf anytime soon, not atleast on this forum now.
