Though Shall Not Stare!
3 Oct 09
Hi, ip I would completely ignore the one staring at me. I do not want that person to know that I am aware that her or she is staring. However, if I am in a bus and the trip would be for quite a while, I would consider transferring seats if the stare gets scary. Take care!

Normally these people are just confident to stare at someone if this person is alone. There are also some instances where you still get stared at even if you are already with someone. One perfect example is when you and your partner are doing some unlikely act in public such as public display of affection. I'm sure with this act you will not just receive a stare from one person but from everyone around you. This means, we have to also pause for a while evaluate what we are doing or how we look at that moment, see if we ourselves are provoking them.

Hm, Ip. It depends on who is staring. If it's a child I usually smile or wave or say hello. If it's a "leacherous" person, I do my best to ignore them. Or is possible, move to another seat...facing away from them! I have learned to always carry something to read with me, so if all else fails, I ignore the person and get lost in reading. It can be unnerving, though! Karen
