Has it ever happened to you ? Just want to know. All my high school years in India, I was a eye candy for girls. Must have been that I was smart + handsome according to an Indian girls definition. Many used to look back at me while walking down the corridor.

Definitely not for me. Unless you count online. I had pix of myself on another sight, and some guys commented I was pretty, sexy, beautiful, or had a hot body. But who knows how valid that is.

Otherwise, guys have shown interest, but I think they were bored, or thought I would be easy since I am the quiet and shy type.

So, I have not been to my knowledge.

At my last job the security guard was checking me out daily and commenting on my outfits all the time. It was fun as men rarely notice women's outfits.

He was cute, and a huge flirt. I later found out he had a girlfriend. In my book he was flirting too aggressively for someone attached.

I've been referred to that at my ripe old age of 40. Not complaining!

I think you are full of yourself.

I was mainly from my pre teen years, though not so much during high school. I think if you are attractive enough, then you are eye candy. Hope I understood this well.

Everyone has people check them out. I'm attractive to some girls and not attractive to others. Both types let me know by their body languages as they walk by.

I think the term eye candy is used more to describe men....by women.

I can't leave the house without a Black man staring at me. Might be a cultural thing, but I am used to being eyed by brothers and have become more relaxed about their suggestive comments.

Quite a few times and if you'd count it as 'eye candy'...

In primary school, I even got a merit award for "having a nice smile".

In high school my teacher (who was a rather generous lady) was like to me "the girls like to sit next to you for your good looks, huh?". A college teacher of mine would usually tell me how cute I am and ask if I'm single or not. She even would pinch me and at wink at me (this no joke, as weird as it sounds). Oh, both of these women were of the same age - late 50s.

That's pretty much it. I really consider myself average looking.
