While in Nashville TN my girlfriend and I were approached by a man asking for money or food. We were walking down the street and he approached us from my side and asked if we could help him.
I thought he was addressing both of us but as I responded he completely ignored looking expectantly at my girlfriend and waiting for her to respond. She offered to help as well a couple of seconds later, we went to the nearest quick food place, bought some food and water and took it back to him. He thanked her and we went on our way.
I'm wondering if there's a reason for his behavior. Does anyone know if there's a reason he would only speak to my girlfriend?
