It's going somewhere and hanging out, watching the crowds walk by. It is a casual way of hanging out without spending money. It's not creepy, it's fun. It's more a way of saying let's hangout but I don't have a lot of money. You may end up commenting on some people's choices of clothes, attitude, etc but it isn't the focus of the date. The focus is hanging out together in a low key, relaxed way.
I've wanted to suggest this to my crush. It basically means you go somewhere public, perhaps a mall or restaurant where you can sit outside or a park, and then you sit around, talk, and observe people.
I think it's brilliant.
Is there anything else to do? Lol
Yeah I've heard of that before, usually they go to the mall on second floor and hang out by the railing to look down at everyone or go to a park and sit on the bench and watch everyone go by. Something old retired people do a lot of
I watch people all the time. It's not creepy, it's observing. People go birdwatching as well for example. And before you say "well yeah birdwatching is normal.", you have to stop and ask yourself: "Don't they both involve watching an organism do its thing?"
