Hi careguarden! OMG, I just hate it when a stranger winks at me! I don't know if it's just me but I feel molested or sexually harassed when someone I don't know winks at me. It happened to me a few times and gggrrrr I just hate it! In my mind, I think they're just being perverts or disrespectful or something. I mean for me, if you like someone, you just don't wink at that someone especially if it's unsolicited. So for me, it's just being disrespectful, and point-blank flirting. (BTW, I don't like flirting as well). The strainger-winking thing actually happened to me a few weeks ago when I was riding a jeepney. It was a stop-light and suddenly a fat man riding on his motorcycle stopped by the side of the jeep and he purposely looked at me and winked! Aaarrgghh!!! OMG I really hate it! And I can see it from his eyes that he's just being plain pervert. It really makes me feel so low when someone does that to me. I'm sorry... I'm just ranting now...but yeah, I hate it when a stranger winks at me; just the thought of it makes me want to punch the winker on the nose).

they're being appreciative of how you look, I usually smile, if he's really cute I might blush, but then I walk on. If they are really interested they would come talk to me.

Hello my friend, yeah I agree with Archie0 perhaps they wink at you because they appreciate or like your looks. I do have few guy friends and sometimes we have this kind habit of winking each other instead of saying "hi or hello." So I'm kinda used on it as when a stranger winks at me and he looks fine then I often smile. Well anyway yours might just different from me or others. We have different perceptions and experiences so it's okay. Thank you for sharing with us and enjoy the rest of the weekend!

Yeah, I guess we have different experiences. Coz I can really tell by looking at the person's eyes if he's just being merely appreciative or already has some kind of lust or malice in his mind. I don't have any problem with someone appreciating my looks by smiling, in fact, I also smile back if that's the case (even if the person is not that good looking), but a wink is too much for me :)

If she is a hottie then "yes" but if she is a weirdo then "no". If i like the person then i will entertain her. If someone winks at you just smile maybe she is just flirtin. She deserve a smile, a wink back or maybe a talk cause she have the confidence to do the first move.

Well i am not the type to wink at anyone i don't know, but i will find it very strange if a girl winks at me, of course i don't think girls who wink at strangers are innocent

there is least chance even if some does it is because he has no friends at all, he want some body to interact with.if you can give him a good smile and be on your way.

This is a strange world but strangers winking at you is not a strange thing, especially if you are a girl. I think it should not be taken in a serous way & should be taken in a light & funny manner. Happy Lotting

I don't like it whenever a stranger winks at me. But if he's cute and his wink is not in any way disrespectful, then I might wink back hahaha! Just kidding... Whenever this happen, I also pretend that I didn't see it.

if I see a stranger winked at me, usually I will show my smile which sweetest but Sometimes I would ask the stranger, what your eyes hurt?

That depends. How strange he is? I mean maybe he is a friend's friend, then I think it's okay. If he is totally strange to me and he looks weird, I will freak out and move fast to get away from him or her.
