What Does it Mean When a Guy Stares at You?

By on September 9, 2016

As women, I think we have all noticed that men like to look our way- but why do some men take a glance, while others do a full on stare? If you’ve ever noticed a man actually staring at you- not just checking you out for a second- you may have been a little bit creeped out. But don’t judge a book by its cover- there are a lot of reasons why a man may stare at you, and I promise he’s not just being weird.


He Find You Attractive

I am pretty sure this one goes without saying: if a man finds you incredibly attractive, then he is going to stare at you. And he probably won’t just stare at your face, either, although that will be his focus of attention for quite some time during this stare-down. He will probably also take a look at your other features as well, of course talking about your chest and boot-ay.

Men are just naturally drawn to women and their bodies; it is what makes the world go round. And when they find a female who is extremely attractive to them, they are going to stare. They don’t want to forget what you look like once you leave the room, so they will stare long and hard to take in all of your beauty and make a mental image of what you look like. Hey, take this as a compliment, ladies! Someone thinks you’re absolutely beautiful and they can’t look away; really, what’s the harm in that?

He Wants to Talk to You, But Doesn’t Know How

A lot- and I mean a LOT- of men have a very difficult time speaking to a woman. So, what is a guy to do? Stare! We already know he finds you incredibly attractive, and he really wants to meet you and get to know you. The only problem is, he is at a total loss for words when it comes to actually introducing himself and striking up a conversation with you. So, being completely at a loss for words and not knowing what to do next, he may just stare at you and freeze. During his stare-down, he is probably thinking about how beautiful you are and how he is just DYING to meet you. He is probably coming up with any question or comment he could probably say to you without you feeling weird or uninterested. His mind is RACING with what to do next, so he freezes, and just looks at you. He is hoping you will notice and YOU make the first move- and if you’re interested in him too, I highly recommend making the first move. He is probably just really shy and totally stunned by your beauty- he can’t even think straight or even SPEAK!

He Wants to Annoy You

There are those guys out there: you know, the guy you turned down because he was gross or crude or you simply weren’t interested in him. Well, he takes it upon himself to make you feel bad for not wanting him. He wants to make you feel uncomfortable and annoyed by him; I guess it is his form of (rather stupid) revenge. So, if there is a guy out there who you turned down and wanted nothing to do with after the first date, and he is staring at you, he is probably just trying to keep your attention and ANNOY you as much as he can. Don’t even pay attention to him- especially if he has one of those awful smirks on his face like he is so cool and smug. Seriously, the less attention you pay to him, the quicker it will go away.


How can you deter this type of stare? DON’T LOOK AT HIM! I know it may be difficult, but keep busy with whatever you’re doing, whether it’s work or school. Try and talk to some of your friends and keep your mind (and eyes) of whatever is going on around you. He will stop staring eventually- I mean, he can’t stare forever, right?


He Wants to Sleep With You

Some men are pigs, let’s just be honest. If you notice a guy staring at you- but he is much more interested in staring at your curves and body- he is probably dreaming about sleeping with you. He is probably thinking of the quickest way he can get you into the sheets. He doesn’t want to get to know you or anything- his mind and eyes are focused only on your womanly shape and he doesn’t care if you know it. Yes, this can be a little bit creepy and rather disgusting, but hopefully he doesn’t keep at it too long; in fact, if he’s staring at your body like that, he’s probably just as confident to come up and ask you out- in which case, say NO!

    There’s this guy I’ve been intrigued in ever since the beginning of this school year. I think he knows I’m attracted to him but he’s a shy guy. I broke the ice multiple times, I initiated a conversation with him, I complimented him and his style. We used to make heavy eye contact, but not anymore. I even let his friend know that I was attracted to him but I don’t think he feels the same because he never said anything about it till this day. But sometimes I catch him staring at me or he watches my every move. We could be in the same hallway and sometimes his eyes look directly at me. Do you think he stares at me then and there because he knows I used to like him?

      I think that he probably stares at you because he knows that you used to like him. You flirted with him and complimented him, and you also told his friend that you are interested. If he liked you back, he could have made a move. Since he did not make a move, it seems that he is not interested in you right now. That could always change some day, but for the moment, it seems like he is not interested yet.

    There is a guy who was talking to me about something and he never liked the surrounding but he still went. I asked him “Why do you go then?” And he said “Well I don’t know.” like he had been looking at me the whole way through while saying that. He smiled as well and I am confused of why he stares at me as he don’t tend to do it with other girls. (He speaks to another girl who is my friend and he wasn’t in the same situation as me). – I don’t think it’s that he wants to sleep with me as he doesn’t seem like that sort of person. Therefore, what does it mean in this situation that he is staring at me?

      It sounds like he may have just gone to be with you. 🙂 It sounds like he could be interested in you. Do you like him back? The stares, comments and other behavior make it sound like he has a crush on you. Now, you just have to decide if you have feelings for him and if you want to do anything about it. Good luck, Babesgirl!
