Now, I do realize there are some women out there who purposefully dress provocatively to draw attention on them. If you are one of them, you need not answer in this thread.

I will give these specific examples, I would appreciate if you'd tell me how it makes you feel:

When you are at the gym and you can feel the stares, are you comfortable?
When wearing bikinis on the beach or wherever else, are you comfortable with guys staring? (or "looking hard"- if you like this term better)?

Thanks!

I prefer to do my squats without being stared at.
Shocking, I know!

I wear sweats to the gym. No one stares at me.

I think it depends on how creepy the guy looks (I know, that's sad). I'm just being honest. I don't dress provocatively, though, so no one stares at me for that reason.

Ok, how about when wearing a bikini?

Most girls I hang out with seem to love the attention they get at the beach or the gym{without necessarily be asking for it}. I guess you ladies are the exception.

Looks like the women on here are not going to want to answer this question, as I'm getting the sense that most don't mind being "checked out". (if you do, that's fine. I'm just trying to get an idea of how most women feel like when they are being stared at.) Some people like it, some just don't and others are indifferent. I want to know which one it is.

I rather use swimsuit than bikini and t-shirts over tank tops. I still get stares and I am not comfortable with them.

Staring is generally bad. Glancing is ok. The longer the stare the more uncomfortable I get.

I don't like being stared at. A simple "You look beautiful" with a smile is flattering.
