    People Make Me Fail When Staring At Me While I Work Because It's Distracting

    This happens all the time when I do something while people stare at me, especially my family (I don't hate them though). I hate it! that's why if no one's around, I always record myself in a video when I do something good. It has always been successful when people never stare 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

    I really do. But I'm

    such a hypocrite because I absolutely love to stare at people and observe them. But when people stare at me for I become extremely uneasy.

    I hate when someone continually stares at you

    but they never make the effort to talk to you. Like if you are going to continually stare at me at least make the effort to come up to me and say something, anything at this point. Ugh people frustrate me so much. I just wish I understood what was going on in peoples heads

    Wh is it that people stare at me?

    So I have anything on my face, pants, jacket or hoodie? If not then I'm not worth looking at.

    Seriously. It's the most uncomfortable thing in

    the world! And the excuse of well they might think you're attractive is invalid. Glancing occasionally with a smile is flirting. Staring is rude and creepy. Lol

    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...

    Last week I had to go to my local home

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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...

    They stare at me like they know me.

    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."

    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...
