One day, Hayley Quinn started thinking that the way men and women meet can often seem one sided. So, she grabbed a few sunflowers and decided to approach random men on the streets of East London.
In the video below, posted on September 23, 2015, Halyley explains: “I’m not just picking the obvious ‘Ken doll’ attractiveness. No! I’m going to look for guys who look like the kind of guys I would speak to. Like, guys who smile at me and look friendly, or guys who look interesting, or guys who look like they’re doing something cool with their lives. So, I’m going to do that. I’m going to check out how they react, how well they respond to a woman actually initiating something.”
Hayley sets out on her journey and spots her first man of the day.
She walks over and startles him a bit. She says, “Excuse me? Sorry, excuse me. I just was walking past and I thought your jacket looked amazing. Awesome! And it matched this little flower thingy that I was carrying around. So, I was wondering, do you want my sunflower?”
The man in the brightly colored jacket cracks a smile and gives her a hug after accepting the flower. Hayley is pleasantly surprised by his reaction and continues her sunflower experiment.
She realizes that each man has a slightly different initial reaction to her, but in the end, she sees her general kindness and effort puts each stranger in a great mood.
She continues walking up to different men, including a set of two tennis players — despite only having one sunflower to give away.
