Default always an empty seat beside me

Recently my attention has drawn to strange phenomenaÖ.whenever I ride the bus no one ever sits beside me(usually)Ö.sure there has been that odd time, but in general it seems people would rather stand then sit beside me..the whole bus could be packed but nope that seat beside me is empty
I donít smell ( Iím very OCD about body odor), I like to think Iím quite an attractive person and Iím always well groomed lol Iím beginning to think I just look extremely unfriendly because honestly...i dont get it
the even better question is why do i care..

That happens to be too, I'm on the school bus and it can be almost full, and people are still looking for a seat away from me. The seat beside me is usually the last one taken and that's only because the whole bus is full. I like sitting by myself, but it feels bad to have no one want to sit next to you until it's practically forced.

They might be intimidated because you're good looking. I get that as well.

This happens to me and I'm not good looking. Average at best.

I think it's a vibe we give off. Probably through body language we're not aware of.

I think in a public area, like public transportation, this behavior is normal. I wouldn't worry about it too much.

The only thing I can really think of is if you look intimidating. For instance an old lady may be more inclined to sit with a young girl than a thug, given no option of an open seat.

However for a school bus, I think this would reflect not bonding with the other students, as the same people ride the bus every day.

This happened to me throughout highschool usually in at least one or two of my classes. We were assigned seats, so we were obligated to sit in those seats. People still preferred not to sit with me.
