Well I was at the grocery store today and I noticed a stranger staring at me! At first I looked at my cloths to see if I had anything loose or hanging out….lol..But then I was looking okay!I proceeded to the back where the frozen food where and as I turned the corner, he was staring at me again! I simply just gave a dirty look and walked to the cashier. How about you, when you notice a stranger staring at you, do you smile or give a dirty look?

Hi there. When I see a stranger smile at me, I try to read there expressions, to see if there friendly ones or just being judgemental and faking the whole thing... Usually if I think they are staring for no apparent reason and end up looking sleazy to me then I will pull a face or finger... If its a friendly glance or hello with a smile when walking past then I will reply back good morning and smile back at them...

usually when a person looks at you that way he must have some intention in his mind. Most of the time if it happens to me, I would not smile to him ever. Smiling will give him a hint that I like him staring at me that way. So I would just ignore him and eventually he would get bored and turn his attention elsewhere.

It depends on the way they looked at me. If they just look at me in a normal way I tend to give them a smile. But when the look is different and they're really staring I definitely give them a frown and I look directly to their eyes to show that I don't find it funny.

It depends. If they are looking at me with discust bc I'm fat I give them a dirty look. If the person looks like a creep I will give them a dirty look. Otherwise I smile at them and maybe say Hi.

well, it really depends on the nature and the looks of the stranger.. if they look nice then I give a smile.. if they look repulsive or scary I give them a " dirty look " and walk away.. most of the time I get the repulsive stairing so I give the bad look!!!

If a stranger would stare at me with no reason at all,, first is to stare at him to and try to read his mind.. I f he still staring at me at the end of about ten seconds or more.. I will try to approach him, and ask do i know you?.. But if the stare is angry, then I stare at him back with an angrier eyes.. But if the stranger has a friendly stare well then i just got to smile at him/her back..

If I saw someone staring at me of course I will be aware of him but It depends also If he/she looked like a bad person I will not look at him again but if they are looking nice maybe I will thought that they knew me thats why there staring at me. If given a chance I will aske her if I knew her and why she is staring at me.
