I Like to People Watch

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 29,163 People

    I love to go to the local mall,

    buy a slice of pizza or some coffee, and watch all the people just wandering around. Occasionally I find someone I am interested in and casually follow them, not to stalk but to get a feel for who they are as a person. Like if a woman buys candles and lingerie, I imagine she's...

    Today I was in my car driving through the

    parking lot of the super market when I looked over and saw a young couple leaning against a car kissing. They weren't making out exactly but there was this sweet innocent with underlying passion going on and I was so taken with the scene that I almost crashed my car into a...

    There are all kinds of folks in this world,

    and if I can get a glimpse, I will. lol. If I go somewhere, I will usually position myself so I have a great view. From Venice Beach to London, U.K. If I am out, I like to take a look at all the different personalities traversing my field of view.

    Some people do interesting things

    and I mean like day you were at a coffee shop. And some guy acted out for some odd bizarre reason. Saw a guy do just that once literally at a coffee shop cause he was too cracked out tripping out. It was pretty amusing I gotta say but what made him think getting all high and...

    One man I noticed was wearing a waistcoat

    and had enough brilliantine in his hair making it look solid. It was parted in the middle and slicked down to within an inch of it's life, slightly too long at the back. He had a head like a Thunderbird puppet and I bet he didn't go to the barbers very often. Can't imagine what...

    I drive a gravel truck all over our city

    and because I am really high up, I can see into everyone's car. Many people have their phones on their laps, or tucked in between their legs. I think it's just a matter of time and practice that people will become better at texting and driving. The thing is...people complain...

    Sunday Afternoon

    I took a Sunday stroll on a beautiful, sunny afternoon. I walked through the park, observing the young skateboarders. Across from the skateboarders, I observed the old homeless men sitting on benches, watching me as I watched them. As I crossed the street, I noticed a young...

    And this is not meant to be weird,

    whenever I'm at the mall with my friends or alone, I casually look around and see what people are up to. I mean, it's hilarious seeing some of the things people try to do in public or do because they don't think people notice

    your face. I see the way you interact with others. I see your expression when you think no one can see you. I can see your joy I can see your pain I want to reach out to you, to hold you. In my heart I know I can make it better. I know I can fulfill all your dreams and passions...

    I like watching people because you can learn a lot about a person just by really paying attention to them.  I watch people everywhere all the time.  But then it has been drilled into me by my dad.  He always said, "Always be aware of your surroundings."  And I am.  I pay...

    I like to gaze up at passing aircraft,

    and think about all the people onboard... I like that I'm watching them and thinking about them, and they're completely unaware. I wonder how many of them are looking down at the lights of my house, and whether they speculate about the people below them.

    People tell stories. Knowing their stories

    sometimes requires watching. I lived at my previous address for four years. I rarely spoke to anyone, but I got to know them. I watched the couple across the street go through a divorce. I watched my neighbor, who was a substitute teacher, live a life burdened with severe...

    just to take my mind off of being bored. About 5 years ago I was walking to work from a friends place I had stayed at. It wasnt to far of a walk and the day was warm and the sun was out :) As I was getting closer to my work, out of the corner of my eye I saw 3 guys roughly my...

    Wonderful read on People Watching.

    One of my favorite things to do. I can get lost in studying ....people!! You’re bored while standing in line or forced to sit in a doctor’s waiting room. What do you do to amuse yourself? Invariably, many of us turn to people watching to pass the time. Without even...

    I'm sitting on the trait.

    .commuting. Watching the people around me, most on their phones and between late twenties and 50's. One gentleman, in his late 70's, possibly early 80's also looks to be "figuring things out"....it's almost like you could read the thoughts he was having through his facial...

    I'm a people watcher.

    I have horrible anxiety with people

    but idly enough at an event when you just blend I like to watch people. A chance to just be a face in the crowd and watch how people act in their environment is fun. And secretly making fun of them for shíts and giggles. (Not to be mean just to laugh)

    The best places to watch people

    for me are the airports and railway stations. I can sit there all day long, see people coming and leaving for their destinations...some there to bid goodbyes, some excited to take the journey, others bored and tired! For that time, I start feeling like I do not exist in that...

    When you have no friends,

    and are always alone, you get used to people watching. I'll go to the mall, sit on the edge of the fountain, read a book. Over the top I'll look at everyone that walks by, giving them a story. Why are they at the mall? Why is she wearing that graphic-T? Why is he being short...
