I Hate It When People Stare At Me

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 5,099 People

    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.

    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...

    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

    Ugh I hate it so much.

    I caught this guy staring at me today, so I figured hey if I stared back maybe he'd look away... Can you believe this guy kept staring? Like noo that's not how it works, you're supposed to look away when I catch you!

    I absolutely hate when people stare me in my

    face. That's when I act like a stereotype. Don't look me in my face and don't speak. Like can I help you if not look somewhere else. If you think I'm cute say so and keep it moving. If don't like something about my look then look somewhere else.

    It leaves me off edge,

    it makes me really self conscious unless I'm taking with some of course then it's different. But if you are so bored that you do nothing but sit there and stare at me, and or your interested on what I may be doing and just stare. Don't! It makes me hell break a nervous...

    When people stare it's kind of annoying

    because I don't know if they are staring because they think I'm pretty or if they don't like or they just think I'm weird!

    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.

    but if you're staring at me hard then we have a problem. When people stare at me I feel eyes peeking through my soul and that's uncomfortable. But at the same time it gets annoying when people get mad that you're just glancing at them. They should complain when I'm staring at...

    People looking at me really stresses me out.

    .. whats the problem? Do I have food there? Take a picture, it lasts longer! I was waiting in a the car in a parking lot for my friend to buy something, and a guy who was also waiting in a car near by was staring at me the whole time. It felt like sexual harrassment.

    You do it all because of others.

    You use make-up and all the pretty clothes because you don't want to be judged and you want to be pretty to others so you can be confident.Try going outside without ANY make up on and dress like you feel like and what you really want.You won't be confident and you are not free.So...

    Sure, I wear big men's clothes with skinny jeans and sneakers, but they don't even know me. Before you "assume," you should try the new trend called "ask."
