    Has anyone ever been a victim of people watching? I'm a people watcher and not in some kind of freaky way I just observe people around me when I'm bored lol. Well today I was at the mall with my friends and we're in the food court and I was at the table by myself while they were getting their food. So I start looking around the food court at the other people. And there just happens to be this girl who seems to be every single place I look. This chick will not sit still. After a while she starts looking at me constantly so I stop looking around but I can feel that she is still looking at me.

    Well the girl comes up to me a few minutes later after my friends came back and slipped me her number and said "We can look at each other more closely if you like" And I then realize that this chick is over 30 and is missing some teeth. And this isn't the first time I've been approached by people after I've just glanced around a place. I guess I should learn my lesson and stop people watching lol.


    Anyone else a people watcher or am I alone in my weirdo ways?

    Not at all weird.
    Friends and I do it all the time. Trick is not to appear to obvious.
    I love to watch people and the little thing they do. it reminds me that we are all the same basically no matter where you are in the world.

    I'm definitely a 'people-watcher'. I do it when I'm at the gym especially.

    Haha yeah I do. It's also what you say, I'm not necessarily checking htem out (sometimes I am), but I'm just curious... of... I don't know, what people look like? What they're doing? But I feel like I'm somehow weird for doing this. Apparentley I'm not alone though! If everyone is curious about each other, I wonder why there's a stigma to look at each other.

    The police advise us to be aware of your surroundings at all times and to watch out for potential terrorists, so now I have an excuse for people watching.

    A lot of people read or text or talk on the phone when waiting at an airport, but with hundreds gathered in one place, I think it is the perfect place to sit back and watch and judge people and hope, "please please please let him be the one sitting next to me on the plane."

    I think you're doing it wrong. The trick is to describe their movements in an australian accent just loud enough for them to hear. icon_wink.gif

    "People watching" is what South Beach Miami is all about. The only thing weird about it is when people think it's weird.
