There have been times when I happen to be looking a certain direction while deep in thought and then a man wonders into my field of view. I realize that my staring is probably making him feel awkward so I look somewhere else, if he interprets this as me being embarrassed because I was caught "checking him out" then fine, he just got an ego boost. But honestly I'm not the type of person who is attracted to looks so I don't do the whole flirty check out thing on strangers that I don't know.

when you say looking i assume you mean it as in "checking someone out". But i personally don't stare at people for that reason very often. IF I DO, HOWEVER, i look away because i feel uncomfortable with people im attracted to getting the wrong impression of me.
for random others, it varies, but i usually dont back down from a staring competition. i can stare into souls.

It's awkward..
Whenever there's a guy who looks at me randomly, I stare for 2 secs, realise I was staring then turn away in guilt. I always think to myself "omg i'm so mean.", "I shouldve waved or at least smiled" and "was he looking at me?" etc.. but there are sometimes where I walk up to them and say Hi in the most confident way I could say it. LOL

These are my reasons:

1) I have a habit of locking my eyes onto a random object while I'm deep in thought, and it's sometimes a person or something else in their direction. If, by chance, they turn and look at me while I'm thinking, the sudden movement may grab my attention and I actually look at them, which may lead them to believe that I was staring at them and that I wasn't in my own world. Since I was never interested in engaging them in the first place, I look away.

2) It's incredibly rare for me to look at people for a reason other than a casual once-over, so I will look away as a wordless message of, " I didn't mean anything by it."

3) If, by some slim chance I was checking them out, me looking away often signifies that I'm not seriously interested and that I don't want to socialize.

4) I may be shy. If I'm not ready to engage, I look away to discourage further interaction.

I smile if I accidentally make eye contact with anybody, and then I go about my business. I don't know why people are so awkward about it. I am the EPITOME of awkward, but I still do that. Because let's face it, you and that guy both know you were staring at him. No need to hide it.
For me, it's usually if I'm spacing out on somebody. it's kind of rare for me to be looking at guys if I find them attractive. But I have done it before.

I AM A MAN , but sure I can shed some light on the subject.

Ever since I made a post on CR asking "why don't women go up to guys they like and talk to them" I started perfecting my eye contact skills. I can rate my eye contact skills at 80% where as before I was at like 30%.

NOW that my eye contact skills are better I can see a whole new world...one where most of the talking is with your eye's and women do this sooo much more than men in my experience anyways. I am also a very handsome guy and get a lot of attention from fe-males( this is not out of arrogance...just saying that I am a good test subject for this post) and in california some awkward attention from dudes.

1. There is the really shy girl who when caught will look away and have awkward dont talk to me vibe or demeanor...which means: dont talk to me please or I will die of awkwardness.

2. Random girl whose mind is on something that has nothing to do with you...it happens.

3. The kinda shy girl who my seem to be slightly nervous and turns her head, but will continue with smiling and a interested gaze when she does look at you( this will be combined with looking away at times to not creep you out.

4. CRAZY GIRLS!!! 100% stare and can read your address off of you pupils.

5. The Playing hard to get lady: Generally more confident than the shy girl...she does the same, but might even giggle a little. The thing is that she will play a little, but will make sure you know that she wants you.( careful not to mix this with the mean girl type who if you approach will reject you the meanest way possible and was toying with you the whole time)

6. The girl who thinks your hot, but has a boyfriend...to her your just eye candy...meh

7. The one who looks at you like your a double-bacon cheeseburger...um yea this is very rare, but when you see it YOU will know
the difference in this and the other categories. Basically she wants to give you the business ;) .

8. The woman you have offended in some way some how...it may have been some random action that happened 2 weeks ago or you just look like that guy who did it.

Of course the things I cover here are possible to see if you can kinda read body language/ demeanor, and the ability to read the language of the EYE's. Needless to say good or even O.K. eye contact skills will make understanding these categories a lot easier. There are also other categories that I didn't cover, but these are the main ones that matter.

For me, it's probably because when I stare at people, it's either from spacing out, because someone told me to look in that general direction, or I am just looking (you know, just because).
If I get caught, I look away so they don't get the wrong idea (either that I'm staring or glaring), or because I'm not one to keep eye contact with people much
