However in my defence I don't stare at people. I just stare at nothing. I blank out sometimes, or when I'm thinking. And I just stare. Which freaks my friends out, and I end up having to apolgize to complete strangers. I'm honestly not staring at them, I'm just thinking.
I find myself in the same situation sometimes. lol I've had moments when I'll be riding the train and i'll stare at a poster above an empty seat to the point when i don't realize someone has sat down and then i end up realizing that i'm staring at a complete stranger. Personally, it's quite embarrassing.
It once worked to my advantage though...before i ever spoke or knew my boyfriend, we had a moment on campus when i was listening to my friend's story and spaced out...before i could realize it i was staring at a guy, i looked away but then notice he was staring back at me too, i smiled at him and he smiled back. Couple of days later i ended up finding him on myspace through our college network
and the rest was history, we've been together for three years<3
However...i really do get irritated when people do the "obvious" stare, you can tell they're not spacing out because they stare, look up and down, and back to stare. I think it even bothers me even more now, after having read Twilight, Port Angeles, when Edward saves Bella from the group of bad men. When i find men staring at me, i wonder what the "hell" could they be thinking?!! it makes me sick to even think about it, so i make a disgusted face....and then i wish i had Edward to protect me. lol
