to the stranger who just said he would ask me to marry him "if I were 15 years older"

I'm sorry but that was just awkward. What did you expect to achieve by telling me that? Why did you even feel the need to say that in the first place? Did it ever cross your mind that I might feel creeped out hearing a much older man, who I don't even know, say that to me? Or that I might not even like men to begin with?

And yes, I reacted agreeably to your comment because frankly, it's easier and safer for me to just play along rather than show how I truly feel: annoyed and offended.
