Some of us may be afraid to talk to a random stranger in public and this is normal as we cannot figure out their true intentions. However, what would you do if you were being rejected by the stranger who you want to start a conversation with?
Recently, a TikTok user earned criticism from netizens after he took to his socials to share how 2 women in public rejected a conversation with him and asked the public’s opinion on whether it was about his appearance.
The camera then switches to himself with him asking, “Am I that ugly?”
In the comment section, a huge debate sparked among netizens with many saying that the outcome would be different if the user was more attractive.
“If you were handsome, you wouldn’t need to wait to be spoken to. Women will talk to you first,” a netizen said.
Another netizen then pointed out how handsome people have more privileges. “Even if you’re friendly, people wouldn’t say that you’re flirting, but if you’re not that attractive, people will label you as a pervert,” he said.
If he is good looking this will be a whole different story. Rupa main peranan, sorry to say. #Gene— AJ (@Demonzhaofan) July 11, 2022
Unfortunately, maybe the angle or lighting is kinda off that's why he looks really kepam/pervert. Plus, the environment.

“If he is good-looking, this will be a whole different story. Looks play a part, sorry to say,” another netizen said.
On the other hand, most female netizens said that looks don’t actually matter when it comes to talking with strangers and they would still feel uncomfortable regardless of how attractive the man approaching them is.
“She just doesn’t want to entertain you. Don’t put so much expectation onto a stranger,” said a netizen.
buruk ke handsome, you should learn how to respect others.— ° 셰라 ° (@syersxxi) July 12, 2022
stranger tau bukan member yang lama tak jumpa eh tiberr terserempak, ter sama² kena sidai . hah itu yelaaa kau nak borak sampai ke malam pun lantak. ini orang tak kenal .
“Honestly, I don’t think it’s because of his looks. I get super scared talking to strangers. I even avoid making eye contact with everyone… not everyone is up for open random conversations,” another netizen said.
Meanwhile, some netizens pointed out that the user just cannot accept rejection and proceeded to call the women out for being arrogant. They also said that being strangers, they’ve got no obligation to entertain him.
