What does it mean when a guy stares at you?

There is a guy in one of my classes and he is constantly paying attention to every little move I make. I am sure he is not looking at the guy behind me unless he is GAY. I don't know how to face this problem because it freaks me out the way he stares at me it makes it look like he is desperate for something.

  • It can mean a couple of things, and a lot of it you can tell from his body language. If he's constantly staring and when you look his way he looks away, it definitely means he's interested in you and just too shy to admit it.

    If he keeps his unwavering stare he may be just trying to catch your eye, does he smile when you look his way? If he smiles maybe that's all he's trying to do, is smile your way and get some sort of recognition from you. Sometimes guys are too afraid to do anything until they already think you're somewhat familiar with them and interested in them.

    One thing to keep in mind when you have someone like this, especially when its someone watching you like a hawk like you describe it (paying attention to every little move) its not something to just ignore. This can be the behavioral signs of a predator, much like a cheetah stalking its prey. If he really freaks you out with the way he looks at you like this I'm sure that's normal, just having him stare at you.

    If you ever decide to meet up with this guy and maybe try and get to know him, bring a friend or two along, it'll keep him from doing anything too weird. And if you ever notice him following you don't shrug it off. Keep walking and find some friends to meet up with or a group of people to chat with.

    • Thank you! But I just want to ask you one last thing since you are a guy. Why does he keep on staring at me when he knows I am looking at him?

    • There is a guy in a couple of my class and he always stare at me and I always stare at him back cause I have a crush on him dose that mean he has a crush on my back and he is shy?

    • I remember in high school there was always this one guy who would stare at me. Stare with a straight serious face (somewhat mean looking). I would be walking down the halls & as soon as I seen him he wouldn't stop staring. I told my friends about it cause it was beginning to make me feel uncomfortable & they noticed too that the stare was abnormal. Still til this day, I don't have a clue to why that guy did that, I've never spoken a single word to him or had any classes with him.
