After becoming aware of FDS I now cringe when I'm reading the free paper on the tube or bus. There is a section where people who who had a 'missed connection' can write to each other.
For example, 'To the guy in the purple hoodie I was the girl in the green dress who bumped into you. Fancy bumping into each other again sometime?'
So this one is very obviously anti FDS as we do not chase after men.
The ones where it is men doing the the looking are almost as bad.
'To the goddess in the blue coat, when I picked up the the paper you dropped I felt a spark. I should have said something. Dinner sometime? Guy with the ginger beard.'
It just means that the guy is too cowardly to speak up in the moment and only wants a guaranteed interaction where the woman is already agreed to go on a date with him. It seems very weak and low value.
What's a better alternative? The guy giving his business card and saying, "I would love to take you out for a date?" When a stop is coming up, so that it doesn't get awkward?
