I Hate People Staring At Me

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 259 People

    So, I'm 19 and in college.

    I'm a bit of a tomboy. I like girls but my family doesn't know it. I've only told a guy friend who's also gay. Anyway, I feel like people (especially girls) are always watching me. Not in a 'they like me sort of way,' but in a 'she's weird' sort of way. I'm 5'8" and have always...

    I'm used to being somewhat invisible.

    And even when I'm purposefully drawing attention to myself, being stared at is really uncomfortable. Earlier this year a friend tried to help me out jokingly with eye contact. She made me look in her eyes as long as she looked in mine. Don't ask me why I don't even know but I...

    It's very annoying. I don't need you staring at

    my a$$. I don't need you staring at how I walk. I don't need staring general. Sometimes I'll just be minding my own business doing whatever and I will see people staring and I feel like yell "mind your freaking business!" Lol people have nothing better to do than stare you down...

    Don't Judge

    When someone stares at me, I always feel like they're either judging me, or they're making fun of me in their minds. It makes me really insecure.

    We're Not That Different

    We're in the same place for the same reason we have different types of this but all in all we're here for the same reason and that is cancer. I'm younger than most of you here and you look at me with these sad eyes and a frown on your face. Yes I know it's sad, it's sad for...

    Sometimes Yes But Most Of The Time No

    ALthough most of the time I do not like when people stare at me sometimes when I am feeling at my best and am feeling good I love when I get the attention of men. I love walking in a room and seeing the eyes of men follow me. Even though they know not to stare they can't help...

    Using Canes

    I use 2 canes to walk. I have Ataxia and have issues with my balance. I HATE going out in public because everybody stares at me (or my canes). I have added 2 stickers to them to try to deter people from staring. To get them to "wake up." One says "Keep staring... I...

    When I Look In The Mirror

    When I look in the mirror sometimes, I despise myself. I was in a wheelchair for a year while I was going through cancer when I was 14. My mother took me out to the mall, the beach; any place to get my mind off my pain. Children would point at me, and the parents would stare at...

    The most annoying thing!

    ! -I hate it when a stranger just stares. - when teachers try to prove something by staring at you. - when someone stares at you for no apparent reason. It makes me feel so uncomfortable and I don't some stupid things.

    When people stare at me I get a very

    uncomfortable vibe. I automatically assume the worst out of that person. Not the best idea to do. In a very sexist opinion it occurs more when guys stare at me. Older males give me the creeps! They follow you with their eyes like you're their prey. Kinda creepy. Right?

    One thing that I hate more

    that keeps me from going to certain places is the stares. I consider such action as impolite, but why me? When I go to church or to my nearest supermarket, there's one thing that I fear about going to those places. The stares. Whenever I get into church or go my nearest...
