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 42
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
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

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
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
For the same reason they stare at muscle cars and motorcycles; because they want one but can't settle on WHICH one.3
well it means we like you
or even love you
cause something inside calls us to you8
Because they're purple and have 3 pairs of legs... obviousley5
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
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
we're visually molesting you6
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
Have you LOOKED at your profile pic? -.-'2
because you touch yourself at night XD7
Because they find women attractive. Same reason a woman might stare at man.5
seeing if you will give us healthy babies.4
A lot of the time I'm day dreaming about something utterly stupid, like why aren't there loads of spiders webs hanging around NY by the 3rd spiderman film? the cleanup bill must be huge!
Alternatively, it could be because you are absolutely stunning and I can't take my eyes off you.
Another option is that you could be acting like a freak, and I'd be trying to work out why you're such a horrible person and what on earth could make someone so annoying. (usually staring without realising I'm doing it)1
because there is a stuff turn guys on but not an average girl
just hot girl
because their bodies is full of feminine
thats about most guys
but there is a guys stare to every women pass by him4
Is it hard to figure out? Men tend stare at girls that they think are attractive.3
Better than staring at nothing.5
All men love beauty.5
girls are so beautiful its just what we guys do5
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

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 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
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
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

Because men are visual creatures? :P2
Because women are so beautiful! We should all be flattered :)5
