The Look (IT JUST GOT REAL)

    Random story thread.

    Came home late as usual from school and just got of the train with a friend, (when you step out the train you can exit from the left or right) my friend went left I went right. As I was walking up the stairs I felt that sensation you feel when you are being stared at (like around the back of your neck) as I get of the top of the stairs and start walking to go wait for my bus. Turning around I caught the eye of another young man staring hard....and I mean deathly hard....so hard he could poke an eye out....so hard.... well you get the point. Now I think this is bad but recently I have decided that in life if anyone is staring I am going to stare back so I decided to do that with this guy.

    His demeanor changed almost immediately when he saw I wasn't looking away...it was like he was getting ready to fight or something. Now for some other reason I as half retarded or something and slowed down, he literally walked right up to me and kept staring. He had a flamboyant air about him (no insult but can't describe it in any other way) so I simply stated. "I'm gay..." wondering why I needed to validate myself to this complete and random stranger. I wouldnt normally do something like that to someone I didn't know but oddly enough his demeanor changed It went from aggressive to an almost...passive mannerism, he didn't really reply but kind of nodded his head and got on his bus, I watched him for a moment and he sat down and kept staring at me outside the window....thats when it became a bit far to creepy and I looked away because I can only stare at you for so dam long!

    so my question is has anyone had a similar with gay men where your initial meeting is seemingly hostile if not extremely awkward and on edge? I know I've had them alot in this area but this one seemed to just stick in my mind for some reason...maybe because he was attractive or just plain and simply it was one of the wierder things of my day that happened..lol and a follow up question how did it start? Did they give you a look? Was it the body language? Or are you the one giving the looks? Dominating the streets with your calm and collected demeanor as you take a stroll down the block xD

    I doubt they were gay but I did have those awkward encounters with a staredown and I knew I was about to get into a fight.....and it happened 3 times
