I think if I were a teen or a woman (TBW and BS's case above) I'd be much more willing to approach kids. It's just, as a dad, I wouldn't be comfortable with random 40+ year old guys approaching my kids, and so I don't do the same with other peoples' kids. I'm much more willing to give unsolicited advice to adults. I wish we all had brick and mortar stores like Troy's around to point people to. Around here it's just Target and Toys R Us (I just finally found Series 9 in TRU, btw, Blue).
As for hoarding minifigs (yes, I do own close to 10 forest maidens), I think that's a different discussion

Not if gathering those figs means you stepped in front of a kid who would like them and wants to find them.
Maybe I'm more approachable because of the female thing...maybe not. Who can say? If I were to guess, I wouldn't agree.
But the difference is how you approach a situation. No AFOL I have met looks like a "creeper" and reality is, consider the interaction. Yes, talk to the adult. Why wouldn't you? But then isn't that how you would react to any situation that involves kids?
