    Hi,
    Just a quick question to hopefully help my self esteem.

    Out in public, I keep having people stare at me, or take a glimpse then look down and smile/giggle, or keep eye contact when I walk past.

    It makes me feel insecure, and I'm pretty sure im not paranoid/deluded.

    So, what would make you stare at someone and give a reaction? Because even if I saw someone remarkably ugly, or with remarkably bad haircut, or even a hot girl etc I wouldnt react to it physically or stare?

    Can anyone give some insight??

    Maybe it's all in your head. People naturally look around themselves, so if you're walking down the street the people you pass might look at you. Doesn't mean they're staring or thinking anything untoward.

    This does sound like a reasonable explanation for the types of stares, but I'm not incredibly handsome unfortunately. lol.

    I am very awkward, it's probably just this. I get worried sometimes that there is something bizarre about my appearance, that's the reason for this thread

    Maybe it's the fact you're not who you think you are; you are in fact a giraffe? I know I couldn't help but stare if I saw a giraffe in the street.
