    I will probably say "hello" or "Hi" in return, with a facial expression that cannot hide my unfamiliarity with that person.

    What makes them attractive exactly - if it's just physical they could be trying to solicit money or something!

    Look around for the cameras, because this would only happen to me if I was unwittingly starring in a sitcom.

    But in all seriousness, I'd try to say something witty or clever, probably drawing on something about the way she's dressed or what she's carrying.  Of course, there's a really good chance I'd fail, say hi, and try not to giggle or blush.  smile 

    Seriously, it's tough when you get caught off guard like that.  I'm a lot better when I can plan ahead.  Or be buzzed.

    I know for sure that the first thing I'd be trying to do is hide my silly smile that surfaces whenever i get excited.

    I will return with the 'hello' and nice to know you.

    Then will chat and see where this will lead to. I always welcome knowing new friends.

    I think it depends greatly on your perceived motivation of that person's intent in their behavior.  If there seems to be an intent to deceive, manipulate, or scam, then it is best to make the encounter as short as possible which can be done in a number of ways.  If the person seems genuinely interested in conversing with you and getting to know you, then it becomes a question of how interested you are in turn and how "available" you are at the time.  I certainly have met some attractive members of the opposite gender who became less attractive the more I got to know them.  Sometimes trouble comes in a nice box with ribbon on it. In that case, I start reverting to the plan of action which I described initially.  WB

    I would reply "Hello" back. If they needed to ask me something, I would give them the best response that I could. If they needed help I would help them. If they just wanted to say hello, then so be it. They are a human being as well, and who knows what wonderful abilities, talents, and strengths that they have? Looks aren't everything, so don't treat someone any differently if they weren't born the same way others are.
    Everybody is different, but we should all be treated as equals. smile

    Hi, Regardless of looks (how shallow)surely it is polite to respond with a greeting back surely? Well that is how I always react, but I certainly do not ignor anybody on the status of good looks??
    Unless of course you are so overwhelmed by their goodlooks you are picking your jaw up off the public highway!!!??

    Before the person said "Hello" to you, I guess there must have been some sort of a signal from you to that person(just meeting that person's eye once or twice is more than sufficient for them to know that you found them attractive). If there was such a signal, then I say that that person is bold, but his inner nature might be anything from good to bad. If there was no signal at all from your side, do not move any further, just try to avoid them.

    Exchange contact/details only if you are willing to risk a relationship. Else, take some time before you really do.

    I will never utter any word but simply give him a smile. That friendly gesture will assure him that I am a harmless person. Being attractive is sometimes deceiving...so, better not talk to him if he is a stranger.

    It depends on the intentions you think the person has. It should not matter if the person is attractive or not, its more a matter of being ready for whatever is next to that "hello".

    I would simply say Hello, how are you doing today! and see where it goes from there.  Simply saying hello to someone who says hello to you won't hurt you!

    I treat all people the same pretty or not. I would say hello and start a conversation about whatever is handy. Once I have some idea about the person's interests I direct the conversation in that realm.
    I am friendly and up front with people and I find they will reveal their true intention rather quickly good or bad.

    "Hello, I want you to meet my little friend [unzips]"-no, bad joke.

    For me, its either because I made a lasting impression on them from the past and forgotten who they are or they are very lonely and decided its time for the bottom bin. However, they seem very surprised that I'm not damaged goods or a scumbag after we get to know each other.

    You answer with a smile, and then you ask them a question. Show them you are interested, if you are. If not still answer with a smile, but don't engage a ina conversation.

    I would say hello too and wait to see if they would like to have a conversation. The person being attractive doesn't matter much to me, it's the vibe I get from them or better yet my perception of that person or the encounter that makes me want to (or not) talk to them.

    If an unknown attractive stranger approached me, I would look him straight in the eye, and flash my prettiest smile, then say "Hello!" and then ask "What brings you here?"  -- or any question, that would cause him to answer or ask a question of his own, to keep him engaged.

    I smile back, :-) and if I am single, maybe wink ;-) 

    If the time is right or appropriate, I would with follow generic small talk...

    "Beautiful day isn't it? My name's Matthew Lee..."

    I've never been great conversation in situations like this involving beautiful women and meeting them unexpectedly for the first time, I am, by years of proof, the definition of the shy, silent kid in class.  I still try every time though, hoping my speech impediment from 3rd grade doesn't greet her instead.

    "Where are you headed to right now?  Any chance I can follow you?  No, you don't need to use your mace"

    Hahaha, just kidding.  I love talking with women, and being open, honest, and talking to them like anyone else is the way I do it.  There is no reason to treat a beautiful person of your desired sex any better than their opposite.  Although we might all do this anyways, I make an effort to seem like my interest goes only so far, even if I am lying. 

    Being friendly and social is important and fun.  I wish I had the mentality I use now, to speak with girls when I was in high school.  Wow back then it was a challenge for me!

    I would certainly be cordial and say "hello" in return and see what this attractive person wants to carry on a conversation or not.  It depends upon where I'm at if it's at a party, work, or traveling.  It's nice to strike up a conversation with anyone, whether they are attractive or not.

    It shouldn't be choosing to say hi after seeing he/she is attractive or unattractive. Politeness is the best way to deal with things.
