If we locked eyes, then I probably would nod, smile and say hi.
But wouldn't go out of my way to tap her on the shoulder and say hi.
Double post sorry!

this thread makes me laugh. I can relate to you all.
When I was a little girl my mum used to go and spend a day (well a couple of hours not all day) a week shopping and mainly browsing at the large shopping centre she worked at. It felt like she used to know everyone and was forever stopping and chatting to people or if she was with someone else pointing out people going, 'isn't that such and such?' It makes me wonder now if things have changed, or if the people my mum ran into used to dread seeing her, hahaha.... In all honesty I think they kept the convo going just as much as my mum did, so perhaps it's a social change as we now get our social fix in other ways. Perhaps my frequent waiting for my mum to finish talking to people when I was a kid is why I avoid running into people, I'm def a quick shop and runner!!!

Yeah this thread is also making me sad. I think we are all getting much more disconnected than we used to.
My circle are very social and chatty. They would find it really strange that I'm part of an online community as well.
So I don't believe the responses on this topic are representative of society generally.
I am the same socially as Marigold and Moxy. I married someone very very sociable, and have given birth to 3 extremely sociable children, so I've had to improve my social skills a little, which isn't a bad thing. Every time we go out either my husband or 4 year old daughter see's someone they know (Mikayla knows so many people in the area from daycare and gym creche) and they always have to stop and chat or say hello.
