    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...

    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...

    All Eyes On Me

    People stare at me because of my small size. At lunch, I could feel everyone's eyes looking at me. I'm sure they want to know how much I'm going to eat today, and how much I'm going to throw in the trash. I understand that I'm smaller than most of the girls, but there is no need...

    I hate when people stare at me.

    Especially strangers. What do you want? Do I know you? What did I do? Stop looking at me! Especially when they're hot and I'm in the corner in my head saying it's not my fault I look like this. ­čśé

    It's Rude...

    I remember when I was a little girl, my mother always said to me, "Don't stare, it's rude." I would like to say that to a person I see almost daily who stares at me all the time. I don't know him and he doesn't know me. He works out at the same gym I work out at. He's never...

    I feel like you can see right through me,

    all my faults, insecurities, like somehow a simple glance can make you privy to all this knowledge. When I walk around, I take special interest in my shoes, my sister told me it looked silly, but I don't care.

    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.

    planning to rape me by how they would stare at me. My father always did the same thing before he raped me so it scares me whenever someone stares at me, even now.

    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

    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's not that I'm insecure.

    A quick glance is cool from a stranger but if they're staring dead at me for 5 min straight it tends to get weird and creepy .
