How do you feel when people stare at you ? My reaction differs as to who is staring at me.
I usually don't take to it kindly. As cliché as it sounds, I think staring is very rude, and it really annoys me.
Most people that I know who stare do it in a very... mocking sort of way. For example, if you tell a joke they don't understand, or say something they don't like, they give you that "***?" kind of stare. It's very irritating.
I usually don't like it, depending on how and who. If they're checking me out, I don't mind, but as of late, I have gained some ponds, so the checking out occurs a lot less.
Females I allow. When guys do it, I stare back and that gets them to avert their eyes. Especially when my eyes glaze over...
When people stare at me, it's because I'm doing something a) dangerous, b) stupid, c) humiliating
I quickly try to assess which of the 3 it is I'm doing (or a combination), and stop immediately.
I quickly wipe my hand over my face and or check my fly.
I always wonder why someone is staring at me. It's always kind of creepy when someone who had a reason to look at you (such as the guy at the Whataburger drive-thru today) just lets their look linger way too long (such as the guy at the Whataburger drive-thru today). That has happened to me twice in the last 2 days.
A male staring at another male for no reason is typically a machismo thing just as staring the other guy down until he looks away is a machismo thing.
Sometimes (well, a lot) I'll just space out and stare at a random spot on a wall. What usually happens is someone walks over to that spot and usually does something like bend over. That leads to bad situations for me. I should learn to space out with my eyes closed.
It only annoys me when it's a guy. Then I just stare back, or at least try to. I usually find myself glaring, actually. Either way, it gets them to stop starting at me and that's all that matters.
Edit: Poop-Loops, that happens to me too. It really sucks when I "wake up" from spacing out and realize that as I was spacing out, someone in front of me decided to bend down for a long time.
I would agree that my reaction differs but I usually smile back and they in turn do the same.
Tend to run my hand over my face/mouth. Ive recently got braces and I gotta admit, Im a little insecure about them.
Eye contact can be a really powerful way to communicate.
Oh god. In 9th grade this girl in my math class thought I liked her (not a good thing, she thought I was also stalking her for some reason). Why did she think I liked her? Because I would just stare and then space out in her general direction, so I can plainly see why she would think that, but I certianly never thought anything of it.
Well in time, this guy I sort of knew came up to me and told me to stay away from her, and that she didn't like me staring at her anymore.
Him: She doesn't like you dude, get over it and leave her alone (shoves me backwards).
Moral of the story. Don't space out in math class.
I also have a terrible midget story where I stared at one at a supermarket when I was little because I'd never seen one before. He got very pissed and him and his midget wife came over and yelled at me. I cried and to this day am quite scared of midgets.
It all depends on whether I'm wearing my underoos inside, or outside my pants that day.
With an ass as cute as mine, you get used to it.
It usually depends, but I usually end up saying either: ya?, or what? usually rather irritably. If it's one of those stares of disapproval, I just stare back. I can hold my stare rather long, so they usually end up lookign away. If it's a girl, I don't care. unless it's to ridicule me, in that case I say: "*** are you staring at?"
I'm not the kindest person. I also tend to blank out alot. But I look upwards. So I don't usually stare at people, unless they are really soing something funny, or stoopid. Or just very hot
I admit the stoopid looks were worse when I used to smoke pot , a lot of it at that, I was always doing something not right for no good reason. Such as going out to the car and getting in the passenger side or the backseat. Then you have to act like your looking for something so as to satisfy your paranoia because all of your neighbors are outside and you swear they know you are high.
WOW am I glad I gave that stuff up , made too me wiggity.
I feel somewhat self-conscious... like you though, the reaction tends to differ depending on the circumstances.
Example... if it's a fellow student, I don't mind. But if it's my professor during a lecture of over 100 students, I get nervous.
i feel sexy
