I see this one person staring at me all the time and I just want to know what they might be thinking…

Who knows? There are about a million reasons someone might stare at another person. There’s no way for any of us to know what is going on in the mid of someone else.

Why not throw them an annoyed “can I help you?” and find out for yourself why they’re doing it?

They might be thinking your beautiful.

When they stare at me they’re trying to figure out (a) what gender I am and (b) how old I am. But the only way to find out for sure is to ask. Politely.

You’re not your. Sorry for typo.

We have no idea why this specific person is staring at you. You can ask them, but there’s no guarantee as to what answer you will receive.

As for someone staring at me personally, I would assume that they are just staring into space. Or they’re a serial killer because that’s just my luck.

I don’t feel the need to say anything. Their hangup, not mine. Sometimes I will give them a little nod and smile, because I think my catching them staring probably embarrassed them more than it bothered me.

@Skaggfacemutt I usually look back also. I smile.

I stare back until they blink or look off.

It’s a contest we played in school so I’m used to it.

I don’t care if people stare at me, I made peace with the fact that I am weird.

“Man, I’d sure like to jump his bones.”

Unfortunately, I only catch men staring at me like that. Not that there’s anything wrong with that.

“Where did I leave my glasses? And what’s that large beige and pink blob over there?”

“How can someone so big move so quickly?”

or

“That’s a lot of chocolate chip cookies to eat in one sitting.”

I just take it as a compliment unless it’s too long or too blatant, then I’ll say, “I’m sorry, have we met?!”, yeah force them to acknowledge their behavior…lol

Between Thanksgiving and Christmas I believe most young kids are thinking ‘is that really Santa?”

fluthernutter's avatar

That person looks familiar.

I get this a lot for some reason. And, no, I don’t think it’s a pick-up line. Even little old ladies say I look familiar. Guess I’ve got a really generic look to me. Or I’ve been around these parts too long. Or both.
