I Am a People Watcher

Everyday Business Casual Voyeurs 2,170 People

    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.

    It is fun and entertaining.

    I also always had the idea to put webcams all over the house. That would be interesting.

    I don't do it often but I enjoy watching people

    in and out of their element. I like to watch people without their knowledge in intimate and non intimate situations.

    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.

    Humans are the most interesting creatures.

    The expressions they make. The way they walk, talk, move, their style, personalities...

    People watching is the only reason I agree to

    go to the mall. I love to hang out on the second floor and watch people come off the escalator. It's a little surprising how many times you'll see someone trip and almost fall on their face because because they're too busy staring at their phone.

    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?

    I could look out a window

    and watch people for hours. It's so strangely entertaining, even if they aren't really doing anything. I love catching them doing things they hope no one sees.

    I am very observant and intuitive

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

    I have always been a people watcher.

    One of my favorite things to do is sit at a park and just observe. I'm a writer, so I get a lot of ideas watching people. Not in a creepy way, mind you...just observational.

    I like to watch people.

    little hands curled up like dead spiders,

    batted around in the air by some invisible cat. she's skillfully parroting others' voices... rapidly cycling through pieces of conversations, like tv channels.

    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...

    My Wife Is A Flirt

    My wife is a bit of a flirt, it spices things up and makes for good times...when we take a getaway down to the gulf she likes to walk out on the balcony in just a towel, and " accidently" let the towel fall off. She also likes to go out for dinner wearing a short skirt, so we can...

    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.

    Watching other people is very entertaining

    for me - not only in sexual situations, but in daily ones too. Sometimes I sit down on a table in a restaurant and watch other people while I keep wondering how are they lives. Thinking what do they do, if they have a family, a lover... It's very exciting.

    I have been known to wait out in a car

    while someone is shopping, just so I can watch the people coming and going. It might be mean, but there are plenty of laughs out there.

    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.

    I am a late bloomer with the social skills.

    What I've watched over the years at work has helped some, as far as watching how people handle conflict and other things. I like to watch these things so I have a clue and some confidence about how to handle certain situations.

    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.

    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.
