In other countries staring at beautiful women is perfectly normal

They dress nice and they are beautiful and so it is expected from men to look

But here in the US as like everything else, women are strange

Among all women in the world, they spent the most amount of money to cosmetics and plastic surgery and when you look at them, they don't like it

American women are STRANGE.

The reason they are strange is because their moms raise them wrong. they are raised like princess not as a woman. They talk too much they know too much.

Same moms do the same mistake with raising boys but that is a different discussion topic.

A wise man would look overseas for marriage and relationships. Women is something you enjoy you laugh and you share things of which sex is number 1. But with American women, it seems like money is #1.

Everything including sex is strange in this country but that is another discussion topic .

I miss real women so much.

If he's ugly/creepy looking I get pretty spooked.
If he's hot, no problem :0

I guess I don't need to answer since I'm one of those women who dresses provocatively.

I'm curious, though, why would you wear a bikini if you don't want to be ogled? That's the whole point. It's not like bikinis are better for swimming, quite the opposite. Unless you're just out there for a tan, in which case you ought to do your sunbathing someplace private if you don't like men staring at you.

Looks and glances are no big deal.

Lengthy stares (often done in a non-friendly way) seem like an invasion of privacy. But most people are respectful in the way they look and they are brief glances/looks. Even a few repeat glances are not a big deal at all.

I just realized I could add a poll, for those who don't want to post their answers.

Also on a side note, I think we should have a "women only" forum, to discuss certain things between us only. The title of the thread said "ladies only", yet we already have a few guys posting replies. Smh

But one has to wonder when does a glance becomes a stare?? Say when you catch him looking, he doesn't look away when you make eye contact: would you be comfortable? And I'm talking about a total stranger. Whether he's cute or not.

Good point regarding bikinis. I've always wondered if ladies wear them because of peer pressure ( if that's the case, I would assume they wouldn't want to be stared at) or because they want they don't care if guys stare or not; they are just having fun at the beach.

It depends on what happens post eye contact. Does he smile, say hello, look away? Keep staring?

It is awkward when you keep staring when caught.

I guess it depends on the stare too. Is it the I am mentally undressing you right now? The I am admiring your beauty stare? The you have some spinach in your teeth stare? The what in the heck are you wearing stare? Or the I am fantasizing about you right now stare?

All feel different.


I am on my phone, please forgive the typos.

In winter, I give you the "I need your help" Stare as shown below :




I apologize for looking creepy, but winter annoys me a lot, and I am clearly not happy staying outside for long.

I'm not kidding when I say I dress for myself. I sometimes dress nicely (and yes, that includes snug clothes - stuff that may be considered sexy) when I'm home alone. For the record, most of my clothes are flattering yet comfortable. I dress because I like the way I look in certain clothes. I'm still not clear on people being convinced that every single effort that goes into appearance is done to please others.

But back to the topic - we're all human and curious about others. I like to sneak in looks at people based on what they're doing and yes, at times, how they look. That's why I don't get annoyed. I'm a people watcher, too.
