It happened to me once too! A random guy started talking to me and trying to be nice, I replied even though I was so puzzled. He took it as an invitation to walk alongside me and insisted I should ‘have lunch’ with him. I was so scared! I went to the restaurant next to my house (because I didn’t want him to know where I live) and told him I need to buy something there.

He insisted to ‘keep me company’ because he had free time anyway. I told him to leave because I was feeling very uncomfortable. He left, I went home and 20 mins later, I got a phone call from my dad asking who’s the guy who forced to go to my neighbour’s second floor of the house to look for me because he was sure my neighbour was ‘hiding me’.

I didn’t dare walk home for a week after that incident!

Gosh, why do some men do this and ruin the good reputation of the good men?
