    I'm finding it difficult to the read 'the signs' with a stranger...

    I commute by train everyday, then get off and walk to work. Recently, this other commuter caught my eye, I looked at him, then looked away but I felt he was still looking... (this was last week).

    Today, I walked part of my normal way then took a different route. The path I took was parallel to my normal route. I looked to my right and this same guy was walking but with his head turned in my direction, he was looking at me again. Granted, I was looking back at him for all this time too but I then looked away and then looked back and he looked at me again... this happened till I passed a wall and could no longer see him.

    What on earth does this mean? Am I reading too much into this?

    Thanks.

    because this is a forum and you use words to describe what happened, it really sounds like hes going to be lurking around your house at night

    but on a serious note, talk to him? you dont get anywhere without trying!

    He probably justs finds you attractive so he can't keep his eyes off you! Be fattered, he's hardly going to start stalking you lol! Maybe start walking alongside him or something, a conversation could get struck and who knows where it'll take you! .

    Eye contact with strangers is hilarious.

    Seriously though, if you felt a bit of a ting, just talk to him. Simples. You'll never know. The worst that could happen is that he will laugh in your face, which to be fair, would be pretty bad.

    Sounds like he's too shy to initiate, and you're thinking " But I'm a girl so I won't approach ".....
