The weirdest time to get stared at is when you are driving down the highway and the guy in the car next to you is staring at you like you have a booger or something on your face...it is rather creepy.
I had a guy do that the other day - my husband was driving and I was the passenger. The guy was staring at me as he passed by, he continued to look at me over his shoulder. It was obvious enough that even my husband noticed. I was like, "what is he staring at?" and my husband's smart ass answer was, "I think he likes you! <3". Ugghhh.
But he really ought to have been watching where he was driving...

And my instance of a reason to stare:
I was sitting at a stop light once and was singing my lungs out and dancing in my seat to some good tunes, when I happened to notice out of the corner of my eye, the person next to me staring and laughing. So I kinda did that exaggerated head turn and looked suitably mortified. He just smiled, winked, waved and then pointed at the light, which by that time was green.
Oh well, I don't have any excuses for being such a big dork (lol).

But on topic, I was always taught that staring was rude, although I find myself looking pretty hard at some people sometimes. When I get caught, I just give a smile and look away. I don't think I get stared at often, either that, or I am oblivious and just don't notice it.

I am paranoid, so I used to believe people were staring at me all of the time.
Mind you, I've done plenty of things that warrant staring. Purple hair, mohawks, looking like a female Marilyn Manson, and being under the influence in public, to name a few.

Quite a lot of people I know engage in something called "people watching", including staring, and sometimes with the intent of making people feel uncomfortable, but usually just for entertainment or observation/knowledge.

Now, I don't often notice anyone staring at me. Although it seems like people will stare at you if you are breathing through your mouth, even if it's the winter and there's a good chance you have a bad cold/allergy/flu and can't breathe through your nose. GRRR. haha

Some of these thoughts and stories are pretty interesting!!

It depends on who it is.

If its one of my friends, I'll stare at them back.

But if it's someone I don't know I'll just ignore it or ask them why they're staring at me. (depending on my mood and how imitating that person looks.)

When someone I don't know stares at me, I just give them a mean or ''wtf look''. Then they usually look the other way.. ^^..

Why does everyone hate being stared at so much? I mean that's what our eyes are for, to look at things with You can't go around with your eyes on the floor all the time. As long as someone isn't being hostile, it's no big deal if someone looks at you. Maybe they are admiring you, ya know?

It's called an opinion. Get over it.
