I agree with you. Makes me uncomfortable. I like wearing sunglasses while driving because it makes it easier to avoid eye contact.

It depends on what I’m doing.  When I used to run in high school, people would drive up behind me and honk and scare the #$&* out of me.  Now if there was a cute guy checking me out in a non obnoxious way, I would probably feel kind of hot!  So creepy guy oogling me, not so much.

Makes me very uncomfy. I don’t know who they are or what they are thinking. The worst part is when they make a rude comment or make noises with their mouth. Oh gosh… it’s just uncalled for.

Living in the city, being “checked out” often is kind of a given.  The streets, subways, etc. are just so crowded and there’s so many people all around.  I often find it flattering as long as it’s not too creepy.

True story: Bono checked me out once when I was walking down the street ;o)

My only claim to fame is one of the guys from the Ghost Hunters show checking me out. ๐Ÿ™  I = nerd for that one.

If it is in a creepy, sloooow kinda way? not so much! But other times? Flattering and I often enjoy it.I used to be a pretty big flirt and raise my eyebrows and all…now I just enjoy the compliment ๐Ÿ˜‰

Ew, no. Although, I have to admit that I haven’t been checked out in a long time, since I put on so much weight. ๐Ÿ™ So I miss being WORTHY of being checked out, but I don’t miss the attention at all.

I hate it!  It makes me feel disgusting.  Like hotchildinthecity says though, its a regular occurence here in NYC.  Its a struggle not to say something mean, or to give a dirty look!  But I don’t know these people so I don’t know what they’d do (I work with victims, you’d be surprised what kind of little things will set someone off).

I work in a restaurant at the moment and get checked out all the time. I don’t really notice it anymore because I don’t care. My mom always comments on it when we go shopping together (it creeps her out) and Fiance does too(he likes it).

Sometimes. If it’s the creepy “staring at your boobs” or saying something nasty to me, NOT ok. Gross. I keep my shades on (which i perpertually wear) and pretend I don’t see/hear. Now, if it’s just a regular person taking a look, well, that’s gonna happen. I’m 5’11” and when I go out, I wear heels. People notice. Usually comment on my height or my eyes. Sometimes what I’m wearing. Not a big deal. I’ve sort of accepted the fact that I stand out in a group, simply for the fact I’m taller than most women. My mom always said to be gracious when someone gives you a real compliment. If someone tells me i’m pretty, i say thank you. It doesn’t happen every day and it always makes me feel good =]. But there is definitely a difference between the gross “i want to bone you” check out and the “oh she looks hot” check out. The latter always feels good =]
