It's obviously I don't post here much, if at all comment, but that is probably neither be here nor there [to unavailingly use that saying].

I had left dinner with friends, catching a train back to my city. Upon entering a cart, I was searching for an open chair, if not one next to another. I sat in between two persons--one in front and the other behind me--only noticing the forward person. I sat, making brief eye contact, returning my attention elsewhere. In my peripherals, I noticed the person I made brief eye contact with had averted his gaze normally, but then returned his gaze within two seconds either at me or past me; I did not return, but became aware.

I couldn't shake my attention from this being in front of me, no matter how many thoughts I pushed forward.

I became a little worried, unsure why I couldn't ignore a stranger among X number of strangers in an open train carriage. Sitting in a two-seated section, this male suddenly slide from the right seat to the left (I was on the lefthand side of my seating). IMMEDIATELY I was overwhelmed with fear, having already processed initial suspicion, and got up to leave my seat heading in the opposite direction of this person.

This is when I noticed a female seated behind me--that I had briefly noted her seating beforehand when trying to find my own seat. She tried to make eye contact, either before or after she slid to make room for me. I did not look back again, busying myself in a seat farther down the carriage. I shook the thought of them maybe a minute after finding a new seat, confident that something took place.

I'm unsure what I think I know what was going on, and I certainly am asking anyone if this sounds familiar. The thought of the pair didn't return until I was ascending from the train station.

Pickpockets?

Also, to note, I edited my signature to a new quote; the former being from Camus. I had to recover my password from last logging in >_______> Decidedly changed the line to another.

Possibly. A friend has been a victim in a grocery line regarding a pair of female and male.

To be fair, the probably did notice I was at least drunk, but not overwhelmingly so. I was able to read my book and listen to music through earphones, without worrying about anything else but them.

Admittedly, I feel a bit silly about this. Maybe they were just pickpockets, targeting an intoxicated person. I'm merely trying not to ignore a strong feeling that this was different.

I have had other incidents where I suspected someone following me or a group of us, and it was valid. Nothing came of previous incidents other than a retreat or long-standing glance from a distance.

Pickpockets,thieves or worse? What matters is nothing happened as you went on yellow alert when you felt they attempted to mark you.

I applaud your paranoia.

Thank you! It's a bit reassuring, you and SlowNail pointing that out. I'm glad nothing came of it as well.

Nothing to feel silly about. Some people are more perceptive. Sounds like it's serving you well. Happy days.
