Hi there :)

I'm a social person and I go for walks a lot outside. Since I live in an urban area I meet a lot of people when I walk or jog outside. I sometimes nod at them or a smile or whatever. Sadly I bumped in to "The joneses" not being friendly...there was a woman who said "look at that stupid teenager etc" she doesn't know me, why so negative reaction? I was only walking and I was dressed normal.

Still planning to go for a walk tomorrow though

Dont pay any attention to these idiots. You carry on walking,jogging and smiling,saying good morning to people as you wish. If they think your an alien or something than they are the ones who should be looking at themselves. Best of luck!!

I think some people (especially middle-aged or older people) just tend to assume that teenagers are always "up to no good" and therefore react negatively towards them, even when there is no reason to. It always seemed that way when I was a teen (then again, I wasn't usually dressed "normally":p) Don't let it bother you.
