    Oooh Never Good

    I hate it if I am sitting on a train or bus and a stranger starts to stare at me.  I am very self-conscious and when feel as though being attacked am very defensive.  So I always assume when someone is staring at me, without a smile or acknowledgement, they are actively...

    I think we all hate being stared at. Unless of course we are narcissistic or just a show-off who demands the attention. Mind you,  no matter what age or sex you are, If you are stared at with admiration then that is acceptable.

    It's Rude to Stare.

    At least for me. I get paranoid when I am stared at. I feel like I look weird or they think I'm an alien or something that's why they stare at me.

    Don't Look At Me!

    I hate being stared at or even looked at. I have a hard time looking people in the eyes and even just looking at them because I know they are looking back. I know most people probably think I'm not listening to what they're saying, but I am! I just prefer to look at something...

    I hate being stared at in everyday life,

    I guess I lack self confidence. When I walk down the street and someone stare at me, I always feel like there's something wrong with me, feeling less than human, sometimes that person is not even looking at me but someone behind me, but I still get that feeling. I'm not fat, I...

    I do not mind being looked at in my bikini

    or other clothes by others. However, I hate being stared at by others dressed or semi dressed.

    I Have No Idea Why But So Many People Blatantly Stare At My High School

    I think it's because it's a small town. What always is happens is I'll be chatting with someone across the isle on the bus, and in the seat behind them; someone who isn't involved in the conversation and really has no reason to be eaves dropping on pointless chit chat is locking...

    It Depends On How They're Staring and When They're Staring

    If a stranger on the street keeps glancing in my direction, I don't mind that. Some would call that staring and be bothered, but not me. Especially if they smile at me and/or seem to find me attractive. If a stranger is looking at me constantly, without blinking or turning away...

    Mum and I went to KFC to get lunch

    and had to pass the supermarket car park and a couple with two little kids got out of their car nearby us and as we were walking past the little girl stared at me for a good ten seconds. It made me feel like a freak. Obviously the shithead's mother doesn't teach her manners...

    when someone incredibly attractive looks you in the eye?

    This is like a major pet peeve with me.

    I can not deal with someone staring at me. Don't get me wrong I like myself, I can call myself beautiful and own that but when someone stares at me, it makes me feel like I should be PERFECT. And I don't like feeling that way, it puts me in this awkward mood and I just want yell...

    Because I'm Shy

    I don't like being the center of attention or being stared at. I used to have to give stage presentations, and I shook so badly. If I sense someone staring at me, I either blush or get angry at them, depending on my mood. I blush a lot.

    Being Stared At

     Feel eyes on you. Defend your privacy, by looking at their eyes too. Now they’re ashamed, and eyes drop down. They had no point to make, but an advantage they did take. So confront your ‘enemy’ to find none there. Sorry, did I mean...

    I don't like being stared at,

    it makes me feel uncomfortable. Sometimes some of my friends would like to stare at me because they say I'm such a cutie and I would laugh uncomfortably and I would say "you silly" and they will continue to stare (it really creeps me out sometimes) and tell me compliments...

    I don't exactly hate it,

    but I don't like being stared at. The reason that people stare at me is because of my disability, the fact that I use a walker, and that I don't walk like other people walk. The fact that I have a disability does not make me some sort of spectacle to be stared at!
