Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 4,899 People

    I freaking hate that.

    Everywhere I go people have to stare, wtf are you looking at? I have to look around me to see if there's anything interesting around me. It annoys the hell outta me, don't stare at me unless you have something to say!

    So the basic rule is -

    when u think someone is staring at u , when u look at them they are suppose to turn away. But then there's always this one person who doesn't look away and still continues to stare at u ,does everyone know what I mean lol

    they always just sit there

    and stare. I understand that kids are curious, but when they stare for a full on 15 mins I get so uncomfortable. when it comes to adults I figure they're judging me or something.

    What the hell are you staring at?! Whenever someone stares at me, I start to get self-concious. I always worry if I have something in my nose or teeth or if my liner is smudged and looks stupid. I also think if I have a huge growing pimple or something. That's why I look and walk...

    Take A Picture, Why Don't You?

    It always bothers me when people stare at me and I make eye contact. I'm not sure if they're staring at me because they like/hate what I'm wearing, because of my hairstyle, because of my ethnicity -- whatever it is! It's even worse when you look back and they're still staring at...

    Last week I had to go to my local home

    I Hate It!

    I actually confront people sometimes because I think it's totally rude. If I feel they don't mean it in a bad way but are just curious about something, I speak to them. Sometimes, well most of the time they are shocked. LOL

    I simply cannot even begin to put my

    unbelievable amount of discomfort into words. Regardless of whether or not you actually are, if I feel you are staring at me I feel an overwhelming desire to dig myself a hole and hide in it.

    staring at people. There's nothing judgmental in my mind, i just look at people for some odd reason. I really don't know why. I don't have a problem of people staring at me, but my problem is that i can't stop glancing at people. If i do, i'll just stare at the floor while...

    I went to dinner with my mom tonight

    and an older gentleman proceeded to stare at my the whole time until I told my mom and she gave him a look then he didn't look at me again. Glad she was there, I just hate going in public because people have staring problems.

    Seriously. It's the most uncomfortable thing in
