Lovingyou.com > Love Advice & Tips > Ask A Male > If A Guy Repeatedly Glances At You?
Why do you repeatedly glance at a woman?
I glance at her because I am physically attracted to her.
I glance at her because I know she is physically attracted to me and it gives me an ego boost.
I glance at her for other reasons....please explain.

Ok some of you who have followed my posts know why I am even asking this i'm sure. But I am going to post all that another time...when I HAVE more time

But I really am curious, because for me I know what I am thinking when I glance a bit. Also I do know everyone is different so i'm just curious to hear the opinions of different guys on here.

Ok I have to give some information so for me I can get an acurate poll I suppose.

This guy just found out that I am attracted to him.

If you are making several glances at a woman you don't even know are you doing so because he to is attracted to you, OR is it just a big ego boost for him knowing that you are attracted to him.

Obviously I know that no one can atone for what he was thinking so put yourself in HIS shoes.

If this is to little information please ask me so I can give more details. Just wanted to keep this post short.

First off, if a guy stares at you, ummm I'd find that just a little creepy... If I glance a woman a few times and smile, it means I'm interested, means she IMO is a beautiful woman, and maybe a few other traits or so that I'm impressed with...

Now if I knew you liked me, I still wouldnt stare... Glance and a smile if I was interested... Shrug, maybe he's just, looking at you trying to read into you, trying to see if theres something he wants to make a move for...

Beats the hell out of me... if you ilke him though, good luck...

One or two things:
- either she is attractive and I want to take as many discreet looks as I can manage without staring
- or she is looking at me repeatedly and I'm trying to figure out why

Updated my post above, but can't change the poll.

Ok let me please rephrase this. I suppose staring means for a long time right? Well he did more glances...I guess I just didn't use the appropriate word for it. So by what you guys are saying then, the glances are a good thing. See Why the heck didn't I THINK of that word Oh well, lot on my mind.

They were looks and he turned his head around and looked right at me and smiled. Then turned the other way. It was then I knew, HE knew I liked him.

So by what you two guys are saying then it was a good thing last night.

I would have been a bit bolder. I like to establish eye contact with a woman I find attractive. I will look at her long enough to see if she is bold enough to meet my look. I always use a pleasant expression and try to show warmth from my facial expression and from my eyes.

It is a way of reading interest. I want to know what she thinks of me. If she is demure and looks down or quickly away, then my next step should be to approach her, break the ice and talk with her. Get to know her and see if we might be compatible for dating. If she meets my gaze and gives a pleasant response, I do the same.

If I see negativity or a lack of feeling/warmth, I take it as disinterest. No harm, no foul. Men can be good hunters and are looking for opportunity, approachability and interest.

I either glance at a girl because I find her phyiscally attractive, or, as is more often the case, because I find the girl interesting (ie I like her). My glances due to physical attraction are usually rare (I say this knowing most guys will think me liars but meh).

I'd never glance at a girl for an ego boost. I'm not even sure how that makes sense!

Excellent observations, Cardinal. Yes, it's really about attraction and approachability. I think that people can quickly learn at first sight to test the impact that they have upon others, and apply their intelligence and powers of observation to decode the attitudes and intentions of others. The vast majority of women can be very good hunters as well. Reading someone's looks and using your intuition gives you an advantage, personally, privately and publicly.

Being alert and aware is important and exchanging glances is often playful flirting. Sometimes, impressions and expressions mean something more, while other times it's nothing and quickly forgotten. Sometimes, a man (or a woman) will try to commit to memory the beauty in his (or her) field of vision.

I try to notice things that happen all around me, but I'm not always as affected by the emotions of others. People like me feel it is important to be perceptive and we want to pick up on the details. However, sometimes we have a self-serving bias and sometimes even the obvious is not so obvious. Some people are very closely guarded - for various personal reasons. People also have prejudices and some are more curious than others, while others who are guarded and uncomfortable with such glances quickly make their feelings known. Some use alot of conjecture and imagine things (which are nothing more than assumptions) and others seem to be able to read things right in almost any light without allowing others to realize that they are being checked out.

Some will look right through you, past you, or look down upon you for reasons of ego and status. I think that most don't like the feeling of being watched, but when we are interested, that's our nature.

If you're interested and you want to know if he's interested, then the best way to find out is to ask him.

A glance isn't much to hang your hat on. About the only thing you can say for sure is that he glances at you -- OK, he glances a lot. But it could be for any number of reasons... Maybe he thinks you're pretty... Maybe he just happens to be looking in your general direction whenever you notice him... Maybe he's looking at someone behind you... Or maybe he wonders if you know you have a booger hanging from your nose... It could literally be anything.

He probably thinks you are hot. I normally glance at a woman I think is hot. I wouldn't want to stare, because it would make them uncomfortable.
