Girls, guys, what do you prefer? Looking at members of the opposite sex and admiring them, or being looked at by members of the opposite sex and being admired by them?
I have a theory that guys prefer looking and girls prefer being looked at, I just wanna see what other people think.

Your theory seems plausible - even incredibly so.
However, up close girls don't seem to want to look at guys. You seem like you can see a guy from a mile away and thus you've observed him before he sees you and thus he doesn't think you acknowledge his presence. And when you girls actually have the balls to make eye contact with us (ok, at least with me) you quickly look away and thus we do not get the impression that you were looking at us to admire us.
...while writing this I seem to have had a personal eureka-moment; I've pretty much obsorbed a "you're a pervert if you look at me"-mentality from girls because of this. I think I've perhaps cracked why I don't approach girls during the daytime, even despite being able to pick up on their little flirting signals.
That being said, I prefer looking since I'm still kinda inclined to belive that girls do not want guys looking at them1
