Reply To: what would YOU do?
the fact that you looked better than him has no bearing at all in the “real world”. the only place where your looks matter and you compete for looks is only in online dating.
irl the girl only cares about behaviorisms. the ugly guy who approaches her, talks to her, makes her laugh, gets more “love” than the good looking guy that just stands idle.
in your case there was nothing to do especially in that weird dynamic with the other guy hanging around you. the only thing would have been to approach her while she was alone. so maybe walk out after her or something. or maybe a different soruation where it’s just you and the girl in line and not some other interfering dick.
but the bigger question is why are you concerned with this one chick when there’s so many girls by themselves all over the place.
also in daygame women hardly ever give indicators of interest save for maybe a quick smile. mainly women are passive as that is their nature. they don’t initiate anything they just go about their merry business. so that means it’s your job as the man to start a conversation with them.
sounds like the guy in front of you attempted to talk to her and you just got a bit jealous that she was talking to him.
so in the future create your own scenerios and don’t look for iois as they are pretty rare from women during the day. imagine yourself a bee that just goes to find pollen amongst flowers that can’t move.
