    It's Your Fault.

    I love to just people watch sometimes. Mostly people I know, to find out more about them and not be completely creepy. It is quite amusing to watch people do things when they think that people aren't watching them. They do some fun things. IT IS THEIR FAULT THAT THEY AMUSE...

    People Watcher, Not Stalker!

    Apparently I have done it since I was really little - I used to observe the room and everyone in it, and have never really stopped.  I find people really interesting in their mannerisms, body language etc etc.... Though some people are so interesting that sometimes I end up...

    People are very interesting when you watch them. They do some funny stuff especially when they are out having a few drinks in them.

    Funny

    It amuses me greatly to watch others. You can usually tell who is self conscious, who is proud of themselves, etc. And people do the funniest things when they think no one is looking. Pick there nose, dance in their car (i do this), give others dirty looks or lustful ones. I just...

    I Don't Know Why

     I'm deeply intrigued by people. I love watching people to see how they interact. I  just really enjoy sitting quietly some where and watching waiting to see what will happen next. I could do this for hours.

    You can learn so much about someone without every speaking a word to them. I find it to be a much better read on who they are as a person. Most people when they are encountered in a social setting or actual conversation they tend to put up a front. I don't think that many people...

    You Never Know

    I have always enjoyed watching other people.  Not in a nosy sort of way, but just curious.  It's not that I spend my days watching my neighbors, or anyone else.  But, if I see someone I tend to watch them and just observe. Sometimes I learn things by watching, but...

    Watching People

    I love watching people.  I don't know why.  Doesn't matter where I am, usually there'll be someone that I find interesting and I will begin watching them, what are they doing, what's there reaction to what is happening, what is their story.  Sometimes I don't...

    No Car

    I don't own a car, so I get where I want by bus. I spend about 1 hour a day in the bus, so it gives me plenty of time to observe. I watch how people dress,      which kind of people ride the bus in the different hours of the day, what they talk about...

    My Not-exatly-psychic Abilities

    Eyes For Looking

    Yes, It Is Better Than Cable!

    I get bored easily, and one way that I combat this is by watching people in the situation I'm in. It entertains me to try to guess what brought them to the same place in life that I am, who they are, what the rest of their life is like, etc. I like trying to pick up on clues to...

    The best place to watch people IMO is at music festivals.  Just sitting on a blanket waiting for the next band to start playing.  There is so much going on around you-hundreds of different conversations, people playing games, juggling, hula hoops, and an endless variety...

    Observations On Society

    Sometimes even at work i like to just sit and watch people behave unaware i'm watching them, town centres, roadside cafeterias, and wherever people congregate, i love observing people. I wouldn't say i am a voyeur but then aren't we all in one way or another?
