    So today, literally 10 minutes ago, I was on the tube solving a 5x5 cube and it tends to attract a lot of stares. Today when I finished a solve and looked up I noticed this cute girl looking at me and I didn't know what to do so I just looked down again and started another solve. Im so awkward I just wanna know if there's a better way to deal with making eye contact with people.

    You should've looked up and just smiled at her.
    It's a nice gesture and I'm sure she would've smiled back

    There's a million different ways to deal with it, but on public transport the most frequent response is to ignore it ever happening.

    Well if you were happy with the her looking at you, just smile and I'm sure she would have smiled back personally if someone is staring at me and it's annoying me I just stare back at them until they back down

    when you have no phone to look at,nothing to read. So you are on the tube sitting there, and then someone is sitting opposite you. So you just look at the floor, because you don't want them to think you are staring at them.









    Just me?

    Well holding eye contact certainly would have made you seem more confident.

    Was she smiling? Was there a hint of smile? Was she being friendly?

    Or was she eye ****ing you?

    You are actually right.

    Holding eye contact would have made him seem more confident and powerful.

    Shame he missed this opportunity.
