I have a question which has been puzzling me... :question:

Has anyone ever had a brief encounter on the metro which has led to friendship, or perhaps more?

I'm not referring to following a girl (or guy) and forcing that encounter ...that's stalking and I'm pretty sure it's illegal here too.

What I mean is, meeting by pure chance, you travel on the metro (same wagon), change stations, travel on the next train (same wagon, again) occasionally exchange smiles :mml:, journey up the escalator (near/next to each other), exit from the station (same exit).

Have you ever made contact and initialised a friendship/romance this way?

Did you meet your gf/wife/bf/husband this way?

What have been your experiences on the metro?

Please share...

There are possibilities, but, unfortunately, all too often they are hampered by language barrier.

I once got out of the metro at Paveletskaya and accidentally stepped on a young girls heel, half stripping her shoe. :( I already kind of feld five fingers burning on my cheek, but she turned around and gave me the most beautiful smile. She was very, very pretty, and clearly interested. Too bad I just standing there, completely dumbstruck, not even able to stammer an apology - or compensating with a cup of coffee. Then she disappeared in the crowd ... :cry:

I was robbed on the metro. I guess that was a pretty intimate encounter. Whoever it was now has my wallet, my old phone, and a half eaten chocolate chip cookie saved in a wrapper. This means they have my driver's license with all my info on it, including my height and weight. So congratulations, Господин/Госпожа Bop, you now know me better than anyone else.

Yeah, I met a friend on the metro. It was about 7am after a long night of dancing. We were waiting for the metro to open (obviously, it was supposed to be open already) and finally someone directed us to a different entrance. We met a couple of guys also waiting for the metro to open. We walked to the other entrance together, talking and getting to know each other. Then we got to the metro and we actually missed the first train cos we wanted to keep talking. Then we swapped numbers and they saw us off onto the train before going to the other side of the platform to catch their metro train.

On the ride home, they sent us a SMS. (o:

Now we've met again several more times. We usually talk on the phone or exchange messages each week, and meet-up when we can. I guess we met back in October or November.

It can happen sometimes. (o:

Interesting article by the BBC here (http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/magazine-12969922)

Is it OK to compliment a stranger?

It's human nature to sometimes find a passing stranger attractive, but is it ever OK to act on it? A recent Magazine feature about the harassment of women in the street sparked a huge response. So where is the line on acceptable behaviour?

Women's groups are campaigning to stamp out what they perceive to be a widespread and unsettling habit - men making comments to them in the street.

The founder of one of these groups, Hollaback!, has said remarks like "hi, gorgeous" and "come over here, love" made women feel uncomfortable, and should be challenged.

In response to the Magazine article on the subject, many female and male readers echoed this sentiment, although some women said they enjoyed some forms of attention and it was good for their self-confidence.

Other men said they did not believe the practice was as common as these groups suggested it was, that women were just as guilty of it, and that it was just a bit of harmless fun.

Different people have different opinions about what is acceptable. So what is acceptable for men and women to say to each other in the street?

I once met a young lass on the metro. She was a bit scruffy, so I tried to avoid her, but she just wouldn't give up! She followed me up the stairs and through a few tunnels before being apprehended by one of the metro staff. It seems that she was only after the kolbasa in my groceries. How does a dog get into the metro system, anyway?

I wore a kilt a few Hogmanays back on the metro, the police and metro attendants didn't know what to do then, so I guess a bloke in a dogsuit (like these (http://youtu.be/lT2ORHXVLxE)) would beat my experience.

I already did the sleeping on the metro thing but it was no joke.

You could do a TV show, just need to make a pilot. I'm up for that if you have some start up cash. If all else fails we could become youtube hits. Think about it.

I just pulled a joke on to young people kissing in the middle of Arbat. They were going at it for a long time so I took off my hat and started asking people for change so they could get a room. They didn't think it was funny but a lot of other peope did. Got no money but lots of laughs.

The Moscow Meyro is so noisy, it's hard to hear your own words. That's the challenge - or the ease. All you have to do as a foreigner is give her a most charming smile and say anything in your own language - she would not understand it anyway and it makes you look nice and interesting! ;)

On a trolleybus/tram/bus there is a small space and its often very quiet and so REALLY difficult (embarassing) to flirt in such places. I also don't commute by such modes of transport. These modes of transport are often too short as they 'feed' people into the metro stations, i.e. not many people stay on a bus/tram/trolleybus for the entire route.

When I lived in the UK I commuted by bus, river boat (on the Thames) but there isn't the culture of flirting on public transport, not like there is on the Moscow metro - especially up/down the escalators.

By comparison, the London underground is boring plus it's full of British girls and they aren't as nice to look at.

В Москве ищут группу смертниц из Дагестана
По информации спецслужб несколько девушек и их поводырь приехали в столицу на автобусе утром 13 апреля.
В МВД России поступили данные на уроженок Дагестана, которые в сопровождении мужчины выехали из Махачкалы на рейсовом автобусе в Москву.

- Террорист, личность которого пока не установлена, привез в столицу четверых или пятерых смертниц для совершения взрывов в людных местах города

Девушки ушли из дома, не предупредив родственников о том, куда едут и когда вернутся обратно.

11 апреля предполагаемые смертницы вместе с проводником сели в автобус, направляющийся в столицу и утром 13-го числа прибыли в Москву.

Есть у спецслужб и информация об объектах, на которые готовят атаку террористки - это Курский и Киевский вокзали и в торговый центр "Европейский". при этом силовики не исключают, что взрывы могут прогреметь и в других людных местах.

Сотрудникам правоохранительных органов удалось установить личность одной из смертниц - это 25-летняя безработная уроженка Буйнакска Н. Саниева.

Где остановятся террористы для подготовки ко взрывам и время проведения террактов пока не известно.

Телеграммы с ориентировкой на смертниц направлены во все столичные отделы полиции.

I've been in the metro many times when men encountered me and said "mozhno s vami poznakomitsa?" I said no and then got out of the carriage and went into another carriage. Some of them were drunk, some weren't, but I have never been "looking" so I didn't want to strike up conversation. I have found guys in Moscow (on the street, in cafes, in the metro) to be rather bold. The last guy tried to pick me up even though I was wearing a wedding ring and was visibly pregnant :question:
On the other hand, I met my husband while standing in line at a cafe in Moscow. I told my Moscow friends that I met him that way, and they were all shocked that I would talk to someone in a cafe, like it was so dangerous or something.

I went to a Blues jam Thursday and they let me play. When I play something happens to women.

I got up on the drums for the second set and played most all of it. After that a young drummer came up and started talking, we smoked and when I got back in they started to play but the drummer was really bad so I went up and played again and stayed up there for the rest of the night. I rocked the place and people were going nuts. The were yelling for more but the guy leading the jam said no so we ended. Then the strangest thing happened, the bass player came up and gave me 1000 rubles. That never happened in the 25 or so years I've been going to jams. You don't walk into a place for a jam and walk out with pay unless you were hired for the job. I don't know what the drummer who was hired thought but they said "hey you played more than him" and paid me more than him. You see when you can play like I can people look at you differently. They were looking much more differently when I walked out of that bar than when I walked in. Hey even the cute little waitress had a big smile on her face when she said good night to me. Sasha I had met before but she never saw me play now she is much more friendly. If you think I'm bullsh*ting you come to R&B cafe on Sunday or better come next Thrusday to Double Bourbon and see for yourself that you should have learn to play something and play it well.

I wish. I was homeless at that time and that is why I moved in with my wife. I had three girlfriends at that time and when I told each one that I didn't have a place to live she was the only one who wanted to take me in, so I gave her what she wanted, a beautiful son. She is a good girl, doesn't smoke, drink or do drugs. She has an okay job and could handle a kid on her own, but she wants him to have a father.

The women from the bus was last summer, I never called her after that, she wasn't that good, she was good looking but she wasn't that good a lover. You know one women said to me, "your no Brad Pitt but you do have something" I think it's they think I'm dangerous, a bad boy and that what gets them hot.

I'm not referring to following a girl (or guy) and forcing that encounter ...that's stalking and I'm pretty sure it's illegal here too.

What I mean is, meeting by pure chance, you travel on the metro (same wagon), change stations, travel on the next train (same wagon, again) occasionally exchange smiles :mml:, journey up the escalator (near/next to each other), exit from the station (same exit).

Have you ever made contact and initialised a friendship/romance this way?

Did you meet your gf/wife/bf/husband this way?

What have been your experiences on the metro?

Please share...

I almost met my mistress that way.... but then I thought, "What would Rusmeister say?"

After entering my local metro station at the same time as a really hot girl :iloveyou: and going on my usual journey, she happens to get on the same train wagon as me :inlove:
I sit down and hear the announcement "Next station, Teatralnaya".

I am on the wrong train, I need the *other* platform.

So I quickly dash off the train in time and go over to the other platform.
A train has just arrived, I hop on and feel daft for getting on the *wrong* train because of this hot girl.

I don't know why you got off even if you were on the wrong train and why you didn't talk to her?

Next time just ask her how to get to the Kremlin.

:doh: I don't know why either.

Too shy I guess :shame: ...she was one of those girls who can wear sunglasses in the metro and look super-hot!

Even if I did trying saying something, it would have been a

"Pppprivet, gggde Kkkreml?" :nut:

...and then ran away before getting an answer.

I soo agree with you. I'm tired of seeing guys look for a long time and then get off. It's such a shame lol. Men should be more assertive. You never know when the girl has noticed you too. Its a risk, but it might be worth it.

Valeria, sometimes (well more often than not), the girls are just too stunning! I just sit/stand, occasionally glance and dream :iloveyou:
I'm sure I am not the only Brit :uk: like this and in London it's a no-no to get acquainted on the underground ...we've too many nutters :nut:

Just remember that Russian/CIS girls are the most beautiful in the world :bowdown:

it's not like there are less nutters in Moscow, there are probably more, but still a girl has the option of either continuing the conversation with the stranger or saying "i'm not interested". I mean you risk being turned down, but what if she takes a liking to you too. I definitely understand that it might be frightening to come up to the girl, but i've seen quite a few guys who I wouldve given my number to in a heartbeat, but because it's considered taboo to meet people in the metro they refrain from coming up to me. It's a risk for the girl too, I mean he could turn out to be a freak, but I believe in taking risks. I'm not going to live my life being scared. You know even if a woman turns you down, in the long run its still pleasant for any man to have the guts to come up to you. Maybe Im wrong

Being turned down = public humiliation ...in what is often a crowded-yet almost silent atmosphere.

It's seems to me beautiful girls are doomed to be single, cause everybody is scared to come up to them :9456:

Most girls are doomed to be single because they think WAY too highly of themselves. And send the wrong message in public by avoiding eye contact, playing with cellphones or just staring at the floor. This also applies to guys.

If you want to meet people in public (potential date, friends) you have to be more approachable. It starts from the person themselves.

Russians have a lot to learn from Westerners.

Some people avoid eye contact cause they are getting confused when notice someone nice looking at them =)

I'm not scared, really hot looking women don't get hit on that much. Everyone thinks she so fine she got to have di boyfriend.

I have a question which has been puzzling me... :question:

Has anyone ever had a brief encounter on the metro which has led to friendship, or perhaps more?

I'm not referring to following a girl (or guy) and forcing that encounter ...that's stalking and I'm pretty sure it's illegal here too.

What I mean is, meeting by pure chance, you travel on the metro (same wagon), change stations, travel on the next train (same wagon, again) occasionally exchange smiles :mml:, journey up the escalator (near/next to each other), exit from the station (same exit).

Have you ever made contact and initialised a friendship/romance this way?

Did you meet your gf/wife/bf/husband this way?





What have been your experiences on the metro?

Please share...

YES

One thing I wanted to add in seriousness...

To the guy who said he's afraid of rejection: suck it up. Rejection is a normal part of life. You're probably never going to see these random strangers again and in five years, it's not going to matter. If you never ask her, you'll instead be kicking yourself wondering if you actually had a chance. Even if she rejects you, at least you tried and you can rest assured that's done. If she says yes, good for you. If she says no, oh well move on. There are plenty of fish in the sea.

Dude, I've hit on men in bars before and been rejected. One guy even laughed loudly and made a scene of it. And I still don't care. I'm a bad bitch who does whatever I want to do and if that means throwing a bone to the hottie on the street I'll do it. If he's not interested, oh effing well who cares. It's like spotting a cat on the street. It catches your attention at first and maybe you'll walk over to it to see if you can pet it but if it runs away from you, your attention just shifts to something else and you forget about it. Oh well.

I think the problem is you worry about what others think of you. And for what reason? Is this in front of your employer or your family? If not, who gives a shit.

I haven't read the whole thread but let me tell you something. In Soviet Moscow, in the 70's and 80's nobody I know had ever met anybody in the Metro. Metro was for moving your body from one place to another, and that was it. Your soul's destination never included metro. Metro was the place where you arrange the afterward meeting with a girl, but you meet the girl at some place above the ground. And when you finally meet the girl in the metro, you take her above as soon as possible to show her how you love and cherish her. Then you take her to your place and then it's like anything else... Today's Moscow metro is a ZOO. I have an urge to buy a gas mask just out of the basic instinct of survival. The old, the classy Moscow metro is dead, D.E.D. - ded.
