I know the situation is always different, but when you get caught looking at a guy why do most of you ladies look away instantly? Why not give a little smile or something...

Too embarrassing. We've been caught in the act! Abort mission! Abort mission! Plus it's rude to stare so I would pretend I was looking around the room or looking at something else.

My natural instinct is to smile at them when I get caught staring lol I get nervous and can't look away so I make an awkward smile and then turn around lol

Could be that a great number of females are brought up being told that the male is supposed to be the initiator,they enjoy it.So, when we get caught looking and appraising, who really made the first move? Lol- it's embarrassing to be caught out of character and makes us blush.

xD This requires a two part answer (for me at least haha)

Part 1 - The "I was indeed checking you out, but I don't just check you out."

Sometimes girls are processing and assessing whether we actually want you to come talk to us (or us go talk to you), while we are "checking you guys/gals out." This requires a good stare now and then. So really we're staring at you, but thinking about how this potential encounter could go. We quickly look away when you catch us, because a) we were approaching the conclusion that it would actually be weird if we talked (but accidentally just kept staring your way) and or b) we're worried if we make eye contact you'll be able to read our thoughts through the windows to our souls (even though that doesn't actually make sense haha we can be highly secretive creatures).

This process can be good though. Sometimes when we look away, it's because of option b (see above) and how if we were undressing you with our eyes we really don't want you to figure that out somehow. We understand you just about as much as you understand us - which could be a little, could be a lot - either way you're an unknown element that could affect our lives.


Part 2 - The "I'm not checking you out, because you're attractive stare
."
This one's probably the most uncomfortable to admit, but sometimes guys/gals that us women stare at are getting our attention for all the wrong reasons. Sometimes we might stare at you, because you're definitely attracting our attention...in all the wrong ways. Women are different, so it might be you're dressed weird, you're saying things she disapproves of, you're creepily staring at that other girl's butt, you're creepily staring off into space, how is it that your laugh sounds like a baby mouse hiccupping? - I don't know there could be countless reasons we're actually looking at you. Any of those reasons kind of makes you a rare creature in our eyes. So when you make eye contact with us, it's best for us to quickly abort our stares so you don't think of us as a challenge.

So BAM there ya go! Hopefully those added some insight to your question...and always remember that us ladies are Complex (capital c). Even we like to think we're simple, but most of us are FAR from simple. However, rest assured that some girls will smile after staring. I know that's one of my preferred methods of getting attention when I want it; but you asked why we look away so I tried to help answer.

Cheers!

I look away because I don't want to be classified as the weirdo who keeps staring. But lately I haven't adverted my eyes when getting "caught" but it's probably creepy cause I keep staring with a straight face *and thinking "hello handsome" *

I look away because I don't want them to recognize me and I get embarrassed.
