    Ever since high school girls have been staring/glaring at me. I have no reason why and I'm getting darn sick of it. It happened two times today at the gym. Funny thing, most of the time, they stare first at my crotch. :confused: uh, why? This happens ALL the time. Why? Could someone enlighten me?

    Well . . . Peachy are you a beautiful woman with a great shape?? Sometimes it is hard not to stare at a beautiful person. On a practical note, are your workout clothes or everyday clothes revealing something that might attract attention or make other women uncomfortable? Just thoughts - not to accuse. It is an odd thing to happen so often.

    In regards to my beauty- I would say I'm okay looking. I'm thin. That's all. Nothing special.

    In regards to workout clothes, I'm not wearing anything more revealing than they are. I don't have big boobs so it's not like I"m showing up my cleavage. Just normal workout attire.

    Same thing with everyday clothes. At work I wear nice tops and trousers and during the weekend I wear jeans/shirt/tank top or a dress/skirt.

    That's why I don't get it. I shouldn't be always attracting attention but I do!

    Maybe you should ask the glaring woman, "Are you ok? Is something wrong?" See what happens!

    I don't get it either. Maybe they are jealous that you are thin, yet there you are working out rather than scarfing at McDonald's! People are just odd sometimes. And let me tell you, there are a lot of them out there, and they are EVERYWHERE!

    camel toe? lol kidding....

    I would "confront" them as well just to make them feel uncomfortable. You shouldn't be the one feeling uncomfortable, it is them who are doing something in which they should be feeling uncomfortable!

    You could just give a friendly "Hi - how's it going for you today" Then see what they say.

    I love to call people on stuff like this by putting the ball in their court. Sometimes it turns out to have nothing to do with me personally, but something they are going through. Although if this happens to you so often it is kind of intriguing. (Where the heck is spell check on here??)

    Couple thoughts: when I was your age, I noticed that older women who used to be thin would "glare" at me... I think (now, perspective!) they may have been remembering being youthful and slim. It can put a frown on my face noticing how unyouthful and unthin 40 can feel for me! :)

    Also, you may just be lovely to watch. Staring/glaring is not very nice, but ... how about a smile and HI! to see how they react.

    Thank you for trying to give you point of view. The thing is all of the times I caught a women starying at me, they were either younger or around my age. It's never women who are older than me. And the crotch staring takes place only outside of the gym. I really don't get that one. :confused:

    I'll admit to staring at boobs. :blush:

    I'm not sure why. I certainly have plenty of my own. I think that I'm always looking to see how mine measure up. :p

    Staring at someone's crotch is just weird. :lol:

    hmmm...well they might be staring at your crotch or your legs, especially if they are thin and don't rub together. So, maybe they're looking at your beautiful, thin legs and going- man how do i get those?? I'm young and I know we all love to compare ourselves and talk down to ourselves without noticing our own wonderful & beautiful assets. But, Peachy, take it as a compliment! You're obviously catching everyone's eye ;)
    And if you're absolutely certain they're staring at your crotch (might be a weird compliment)...maybe just stick your hand down there nonchalantly and wave at them. haha :D

    and make sure you tell us how it turned out!!!! :toofunny:

    Peachy~I'm sorry women are staring at you. I'm not overly thin, but not overweight either (I'm working to be a bit thinner). I'll admit that I tend to stare at women in the gym (though never at the crouch area!) because their shape is what I hope to accomplish!

    And Ima, I tend to look at boobs too....I thank my dh for that!

    Y'all made me laugh. Quite an accomplishment when it is a super tough day and I am on the verge of either a pity party or going back to bed at 11:30. THANK YOU!

    I absolutely love looking at beautiful people and yes when I look at younger women, I think of how I looked and felt when I was young. However, I do NOT stare at their crotch!!! This thread is so funny, I love it!

    I thought of this thread today because people stared at my hair all day today. Of course, since my hair isn't really my hair, I kept thinking that something was wrong. Everytime I glanced at myself in a mirror, everything seemed fine. I had put it up today, which isn't something I usually do. At one of the last stores I was in today, I caught the eye of a woman who was staring at my hair, and she said she was sorry for staring. Then she added that she loved my hair color, and that she wished she could get her hair as straight as mine.

    I still can't think of a good reason to stare at somebody's crotch, though. :confused:

    Well, I think we can all agree that perhaps I have THE crotch that every woman wants. That's it. That MUST be the answer. I should, nay, must become a crotch model. Onto Americas Next Top Crotch Model.

    you guys are too much!!! :rofl:honestly, I needed to laugh tonight...eerr, this morning. :p

    I'm thinking you must be a very self-confidant and lovely woman and that's why they're staring at you...but your crotch, well; I have no answer for that one. :confused:

    I love the idea of the "hand waving" though! :lol:
