How did you react? You run? You would be curious, and put your hand on it to see what is the skin's texture, or simply asking him, how are you, are you okay? You will act friendly, why not you can offer a coffee to him, or you try to attack him before he attack you? You will try to take a picture, to show after that you are not crazy? You will notify the authorities or you will keep him in your house to see what he can, what he know , what he want? I would keep him.of course if he is friendly.

Yeah I guess it depends on what I can sense about him on our first encounter. If he's nice I'll be nice to him, and even be his friend. And if he's not nice at all, I wouldn't tell the authorities or anyone about it (well maybe just a few friends) but really, I don't ever want to get into trouble for talking about a nasty beast like that.

Hi, how much do you think that can be a alien with you? I am sure that they have high technology, and can make us dust just in a second, but maybe they are curios too, and will let us to answer friendly. never know...

Maybe they have mad scientists too, who want only make experiences, and aliens will only just meet the simple, like us, enjoy a coffee, to gossip with us ...

I would ask the question differently, what would a martian if he would meet with me? just kidding, i am sure that if i ll be face to face with a alien, i will be curios, i mean that if he is not very scaring, i will stay and try to know him better, and why not i will offer him a coffee...

"ET?! Kiyah, i want a autograph!! You will give me one, neh, neh? Hey, don't run away, You won't escape me! Mwahaha!" Lol, love this type of discussion which stimulate my big imagination xD. Seriously, i don't know at all. I would be shocked of course, if he looks nice maybe i talk to him like "Euh... Hello from Terrians! I wish you will have a nice day here." XD And he wants to attack me, i would run like a crazy of course cause i don't know how to fight, generally, if he was a human male, i would give a big blow in his p*nis lol, but it is an alien, so don't know if this super technic would work on him? o_O

Mybe the right place to hit him, is not there, is in other area of his body, maybe, they are different, any way, can be so intersting, our curiosity is so big(humans i mean)...i wish you to have time to ask a autograph...or maybe he will give you one, as a tatoo, on your skin...

Well it's a hard question. You may never know until you face that being. I think I would be quite shocked by encountering an extraterrestrial creature. I would be suspicious towards him, because I wouldn't know whether it's a friendly creature or a hostile one. I think if that being would show a friendly attitude towards me, then I would try to communicate with it, perhaps I would get some useful knowledge or super power like people in these sci-fi movies!

I know it is a difficult answer, but why not imagine that they are beings like us, maybe not with so many problems, but will only be friendly, so between neighboring galaxy...

have so many ideas, i am sure that you will handle with this situation, curiosity make us to be more "smart" in dificult situations..

That all depends on the situation. Am I hiding and see it in the distance? Is it running at me with a weapon? Did I wake up in the mothership to find it standing over me? For the most part however my curiousity would probally win out, that and the apranoia that it was a joke, would ground me to explore some more. And teh fear would possibly ake me too stunned and shocked to move as well.So wither way Im there and figuring out the alien.:) Happy mylotting.

hell0 Marianna! wel, i guess that the curiosity will really beat the fear, because I have thought about it many times, have imagined it every time I've watched some sci-fi movie. well, i guess at the beginning i will be scared, but it is normal- who else won't be scared in the first minutes by his/her meeting with an alien?:) i guess first i will try to talk to it, maybe it can talk my language or maybe not :) then i will try to touch it, just to see how it is on touch and i also will photograph it, so that i can have a proof of it!

Curiosity beat fear of course, seems that you will try to act as i want do too; depend only if we will have time to do this all, if they will be friendly or not, but if they want to kill us, as humans, as race i am sure that they already did until now..

oh, I think I might run because it's so not common to see an alien! I'll be afraid because it's an alien! But if the alien is like in human form, maybe I would be friendly, just maybe. As long as it don't look scary!

Is possible that alien will be sure that we are scary, not us, maybe they think that they are handsome, and we are ugly..never know, but i am sure that soon we will know, because i am sure that aliens exist; depend just when they will come here, on the earth

it would probably depend on what it looks, smells, sounds and how it would act in front of me. if it's scary or too creepy i would probably stone up from shock! but then i it's not, i'll try to be casual and friendly, but cautious and aware at the same time. we don't know if they'd want to kill the human race or anything. haha! the media imposes too much bad alien image. we'll see when i see them. hehe

Hi, so you will take a final decision only when you will be face to face with him..i hope that will be not to late for you..Any way, if they want kill us, i am sure that they can do this before, not let us to meet them in intimacy; they are curios, as we are too..
• Philippines

i guess we both run as he might also think im also an alien im sure we both curious to each other and whatever i have in mind will also be the same in him like the question from where they come from, why they looks so different and why they act like that and etc.

i have also thought this once, and i felt afraid because we do not really know what is going to happen especially if they abduct you. what if they use your body as a reference for their next visit? omg.

If I had face to face with an alien the first thing that I'll say it is: "take me away!" :)

That ideia that the alien race is here to conquer the human race is false. Why they even boren to fight agaisnt us if we are more accostomaded to this place ? If they want to conquer us, is better to make social interaction, and ask to us if we want to help then. Of course if i see one i try to make a foto (if have camera) and alert the authorities.I don't attack him because you never attack somenoe who visits your house. Just keep alert and watching closely. Try to talk with him or make moves or gests and guess what he want... If he try attacks you (is more unlikely because if he is on earth is better attack with his spacecraft - not in person), just run away.

Well, I think my first reaction would be complete and utter shock. I mean, there is obvious potential for some kind of life out there other than us. There has to be with a universe as big as ours. However, actually thinking that and actually being face to face with the evidence is two different matters entirely. I think my entire brain would be overdrive, as I attempted to process what is going on and exactly if the alien is a threat or not. Obviously, I might be scared if he was pointing some kind of weapon at me. However, I would take a step or two forward if he did not appear to be threatening. Try and communicate with whatever had landed. Be ready to get out of there if my actions are some how interpreted as hostile. Given the fact we know nothing about life on other planets, what could be considered to be friendly to us could be considered a threat to them. You just never know what to expect.

I definitely wouldn't know how to react but definitely I will scream! If it will be due to excitement or fear I wouldn't know too.
