This goes to men who know the women such as being in the same class/workplace or men who just randomly stare even if they don` t know you
Why do men stare at women?
What Guys Said 43
For the same reason they stare at muscle cars and motorcycles; because they want one but can't settle on WHICH one.3
I tend to do that, and it's because the girl is pretty in some aspect. Her eyes, her face, her hair, who knows? But it's always better to stare at something pretty than something bland, right?4
Because we think you're pretty. Why? Does this bother you? "OMG my life sucks because guys are always staring at me because of how good-looking I am, and instead of being happy about it and not caring much, I think I'll just complain and wish I didn't look so damn good."?7

That's why we're supposed to wear sunglasses so you girls won't know what we're doing. Guys, stop creepin the girls out and go getcha some shades. And I don't know about the whole staring thing...I call it checking her out.6
Because they're beautiful and we desire them.
Seeing a beautiful just makes you feel better. I can't back it up but I'd speculate that it probably triggers a release of endorphins (maybe dopamine, oxytocin?) in the brain. If we don't look we don't get the feeling so we stare. Just being around a girl you fancy can really brighten up your day.
And before you get the wrong idea, this isn't the same thing as sexual objectification. It feels more "wholesome" than that. In my experience it was that "warm, fuzzy feeling". It's more of a general sense of longing for that person. When I look at a girl I'm always completely aware that she's a living, breathing human being.
Just because it's a physical attraction (or even a sexual attraction) doesn't mean it's demeaning or predatory. It's an abstract feeling and I don't know quite how to describe it. I can understand if it makes you uncomfortable but I'd wager that most guys that stare probably aren't pigs.6
They are checking you out because they think your attractive.
They are secretly hoping they'll be able to open conversation with you through initial eyecontact.
(Think of it this way, if a guy is looking at you, you'll feel drawn to look back thus its the best way to get eyecontact going with someone)6
You got the whole thing wrong.
Guys don't stare at women. They stare at their boobs. Most men have just mastered an artificial squint so it doesn't look like it.8
Have you LOOKED at your profile pic? -.-'2
because guys are ugly.11

because we like the way you look, want to fight about it? (lol family guy)
but yeah it's because we think you're attractive and beautiful, you're like a painting just something nice to look at, you know what I mean?
Word is Bond.3
Because they look attractive.3
Because they're purple and have 3 pairs of legs... obviousley5
we're visually molesting you6
I try to only stare when they don't notice. I do this because I like what I'm seeing. If women don't like guys doing this, don't shower, don't dress up, no makeup - just look like crap and then you don't have to worry about it3
well maybe if god didn't make women so damn noticeable and freaking hot. men wouldn't look at them to much. its a good thing if guys check you out it means your hot
Is it hard to figure out? Men tend stare at girls that they think are attractive.3
because its good for their health.2
Because they like what they are looking at! You don't have to know the person to like them, especially in a physical or lustful way.3
well it means we like you
or even love you
cause something inside calls us to you8
Because they find women attractive. Same reason a woman might stare at man.5
Better than staring at nothing.5
excuse me .. !? women stare at me !8
seeing if you will give us healthy babies.4
You women have such artistically hot bodies and you ask such a question? Ridiculous!1
We do it because we're subconsciously sizing you up to see whether you'll bear us healthy, and reproductively successful children.
Crass, but true. Hence we're feel self-conscious when you catch us looking at you.
On the other hand, girls who stare at guys will instantly avert their gaze when we catch you looking at us too.1
Sometimes staring is all you can have.18
i wanna chat wid you ?2
because you touch yourself at night XD7
If they are hot, sometimes you stare without even realizing it4
girls are so beautiful its just what we guys do5

Because men are visual by nature and they stare at things that mesmerize them, i.e. a beautiful woman, sports, fancy cars, electronics, food...lol.9
I have always wonder this, since finding myself to be the target of consent staring for a particular person, who shall not be named. Its all the time...the unfortunate thing with this issue I have, is the stares have no emotion. Its like a dog, just fixed, no blinking, no smile...sometimes it can feel quite threatening, and creepy...I will though always stare back, just so they know I've seen them.
But I don't know why...confuses the sh*t out of me.2
The reason that I feel a guy would stare, is because he can't have you.
If you see the person regularly, work,school,cafe. And the same guy stares at you It would probably be for the following reasons.
1) They like you but probably has a wife/girl, so they can only look. It makes them feel good, which in term helps there sex life with there partner. (messed up but true)
2) They like you and may possibly, make a move. But if it doesn't happen within a month or two tops. Refer back to # 1.
3) There perverts.
4) If its not someone you see, all the time as in a stranger. Then its like what most guys on here stated.
They like what they see, and are admiring. :-)1
I LOVE making eye contact with a guy I find attractive when he's staring at me. It's an indescribable joy... like an adrenaline rush. If I'm not into him, I don't complain he's staring, but I don't reciprocate so he gets the message.2
they want sex3
I STARE. STARING IS GOOD. STARING SHOULD BE ENCOURAGED. You LEARN ABOUT PEOPLE. YOUR ABILITY TO EMPATHIZE INCREASES. YOU BECOME MORE AWARE. YOU BECOME MORE CONSCIOUS OF OTHERS. YOU BECOME MORE UNDERSTANDING BETTER AT COMMUNICATING. PEOPLE TALK TOO MUCH.
some people state to make you feel weird. some do it because they like to look. some because they have astigmatism and are trying to look at something else entirely.
u gotta figure the word exists in the english language for a reason- because people do it.2
haha yeah I have that problem. good question. I always wonder why the STARE. then I stare back and I don't know what's going on! lol1
Because we're easy on the eyes.1
well ,maybe they are just look at you ,as we always stare at men in the road,nothing wrong1
why the hell do you think?2
Because men are visual creatures? :P2
Because women are so beautiful! We should all be flattered :)5Click "Show More" for your mentionsMost Helpful Opinion(mho) Rate.
