    Ive noticed I must attract a lot of attention, when im at the gym, Ive noticed people look at me when I walk past, I turn my face because its becoming really obvious now...like today a guy saw me on the weights machine, he looked and then strategically went on the machine near me? I also see girls check me out too, which is normal I guess...but why do guys stare (im a guy), im not hench or massively tall so could fight them, but I have a 'pretty' face for a guy, I guess..

    Maybe they think you're attractive I guess.

    Because your shorts are too tight and your balls look like a bag of mini babybels.

    Perhaps, I sometimes believe its because im unusual looking, people tend to stare and maybe assess me in some way? like if i look up I may get a quick glance, but if i turn my face and dont look at the other person im 90% sure theyre glaring...its soo odd...

    It might be slight paranoia? Not meaning to be rude at all but it may have happened to you a few times and so increased the likelihood you believe it's happening at other times. You said you are "unusual looking" so I thought it sounded as if you have a bit of a hang up about your appearance.
