I Am a People Watcher

Everyday Business Casual Voyeurs 3,684 People

    Occasionally this can be fun

    because you can psychoanalyze people from a distance. My parents and I used to do this a lot at Malls because it was sort of interesting to observe. Personally, i sometimes ponder about life and i came to the conclusion that in life there are 7 billion people on the planet we...

    or just walking through campus and seeing the different strides and actions of people is fascinating

    Whenever I am in an airport

    or at a train station I find myself just watching other people wondering where they are setting off to or where have they just been. Does anyone else find themselves doing this?

    there is a man I watch.

    I don't know him... just to talk to occasionally. but he intrigues me. He works at Walmart. Leads the singing at church. He is Fiery and opinionated His Filter is often off, and he can be bold, brash and totally dedicated to what he believes. I have seen him wipe tears from his...

    I watch men travelling round the globe to find

    a partner, usually young and good looking by Western standards. They kid themselves they have charm and even good looks in their fifties and sixties. But its all fantasy, he is a stud and she is lucky to have him lol.

    Attention To Detail

    I am a people watcher. I do this in everyday life. For the past 6 years, it's even helped me make a living. My skill has gotten better over these past few years, but it is always something I can get better at. You can learn a lot by just watching people. You can learn to read...

    I observe people because I'm a Pisces.

    That's what I'm good at, apparently. I like reading people's thoughts through actions. It seems like I can still read through them even if they put up a thick barrier.

    Always on the outside looking in.

    Reading the emotions of others when you catch them in that one moment where the think no one is looking. Feeling what they feel, learning from their experience and their mistakes. When you learn too much from others you forget to live yourself. Its a lonely buisness being an...

    In the summer time do you realize

    that there may be men working below the board walk who look up from time to time and get an eyeful as the gals walk by . Sunny days are best . There are those who do not wear underwear. Also those who stand and talk

    when it comes to people and their motives. A lot of this comes from my empathy but also a lot of people watching!

    Today, I decided to sit by this woman at lunch.

    She was really nice and kind to me. Told me she was coming back to school to pursue what she loved to do. While mid way through our conversation she confessed that "She was a people watcher" I told her I was too. For the first time I didn't feel weird about observing people and...

    I am very much a people watcher

    and have been for a multitude of years. I love how they act and react in certain situations. Many times they do not surprise me with their interactions between each other. No, I am not a psychologist, psychiatrist, or counselor but just enjoy people and is a hobby of mine.

    Does anyone else ever just like to stand

    or sit amongst a group of people and listen to them talk? I love to stand in a group, and act as if I'm invisible, because I love to watch other people converse together, but not actually take part in it. It's like watching a story fold out around you, and it is sort of...

    I become a third person character in my life,

    experiencing positive and negative human connections, all through the eyes of others, never becoming the center of my own world. All of this insight into the experiences of others, feeds on my soul.

    As a boy and young man I did quite a bit of

    people watching in ways that would not be socially acceptable. I have long since outgrown that particular vice but I am still a people watcher. Now days I do most of it sitting on a bench at the mall just watching shoppers go to and fro.

    Love To People Watch In All Sorts Of Situations

    Saw a guy today while waiting for class to start. He was talking to a girl he had just met (they were perfectly within earshot). He stumbled on his words and his body language was all fidgety. It was obvious that he kinda liked her. He even made a feeble attempt to ask her...

    we have nothing at all around us but farm land and swamps. Much more farm animal than humans that live in the parish. Horses being ridden on dirt road. Everyone waves at everyone as we pass by. You dare not enter a store without asking loud, "How are y'all doing". After saying...

    One of the greatest things I love about college.

    Sitting almost anywhere on campus and watching everyone go by. Some laughing, some are alone, some are in groups, every once in a awhile someone will miss a step and look around and hopes nobody saw them.

    Well to be more specific I'm a "girl watcher",

    at least girls in skirts...Preferably wearing nylons. There is something so sensuous about a girl in nylons. What really turns me on is when you get a glimpse of the reinforced top, either because the skirt is moving around, or because the shorts are a little too short. I'm...

    It's so interesting to just sit

    and watch. Mainly because people reveal a lot more than they realise without saying a word. Even the toughest people reveal their vulnerable side when they think no one is watching.
