Staring at anyone is rude. It makes the person being stared at uncomfortable.

No. As long as it's not a creepy stare. I would say stare for about a maximum of 5-10 seconds.

Today in language arts we made eye contact a few times. I'm looking down and all of the sudden I look up and she's looking at me. Then she'll look away real quick.

Miyuette
Oohhhhh. :)
Report as
Then she's into you! Just don't read into it too much. You might get steered the wrong way.
Report as
Then I'm looking at her for a few seconds and the cycle repeats
Report as
She told me she likes me but she has a bf.
Report as
Eh, just hang out with her. Talk to her first then wait til she waits for you to come along. I'd recommend talking to her alone, and not with her friend posse. Then see what happens.
Report as
Like she was saying she was thinking of breaking up with him.
Report as
Maybe that, yeah.
Report as
And also, I just got my phone back tonight and she texted me on our light up night saying are you here but I never could get back to her I feel terrible.
Report as
Say you had something to do for your mom or something. Or just tell her the truth. Whch is probably the exact thing I said before xD. But yeah.
Report as
Yeah I will. Honesty is one of the most important things in life especially when wanting a relationship.
Report as
Yep.
Report as
The whole time I didn't have my phone I was like oh no what if she texts me and thinks I'm not being respectful and answering back.
Report as
Just talk to her, be honest, stick with her and have a shoulder for her to cry on if she needs one. Just be there for her. She'll definitely earn your respect.

Well, there's nothing wrong with thinking a girl is pretty, but try not to stare at her. I mean, it's normal, but at least try to control your feelings. I know it can be hard, and it's something I kind of struggle with, but it's good to have self control. Not bad to look for a few seconds, but don't stare

Funny you say that....sometimes self control of sexual attraction is the hardest thing even for women. You want more and more of it.

Theres really no problem with it but, its either probably going to:
A: Make her feel super weird
B: Make her think there is something wrong with her
C: Or in some VERY RARE cases, she will think its cute (probably if you are dating her xD)

Well she knows I like her.
Report as
EVEN BETTER. just don't make staring at her a habit that long and lingers for long periods of time
Report as
Yeah I mean maybe stares is the wrong word. I probably should use glances instead. Like the teacher typically stands behind or infront of her so I have a good "excuse" to look at her.
Report as
oh okay..haha. being so slick with it. at least ur not like this one guy that likes me . HE LITERALLY STARES O.O LONG STARES
Report as
Yeah well do you like him?
Report as
actaully i do pero we aren't talking at the moment
Report as
Well that's good...in a way! So at least you know he likes you, and you like him and have a pretty good chance of having a relationship in the near future...just like me!
Report as
you could say that pero he has a gf. but claims to love and care about me. in the process of our fight my feelings seem to be slowly fading and going towards one of my bff's
Report as
Well we are basically in the same boat.

damn...we both need a life preserver right now

Yep your right. This right now is rough.. very rough.

Stare is a strong word. Try walking up to her and compliment her on what you thought was pretty. Like her smile, her hair, or a piece of jewelry. Nice little icebreaker. Then, walk away confidently but be nearby like a table in a cafeteria or a booth at Starbucks. Maybe she'll want to talk to you...

As long if she doesn't see you. If you want to confront her try not to make it awkward. The society is really judging now. Just make sure she doesn't have a boyfriend.

There is a table of guys at my school and whenever I walk by I feel like I'm being watched and people say they are looking at me and my guy friend who is friends with them called them pervs. It makes me feel very weirded out. I'm debating whether or not to say something to them about because in my opinion it's rude. I'd rather them just be upfront and ask for my number than check me out from afar

She always says hey with a big smile on her face.
Report as
so start a convo with her
Report as
I want to but it's in church.
Report as
start one before or after church
Report as
Yeah I wish I could but my parents are so controlling. I want to ask her put but they won't let me.
Report as
i know what you mean... try and talk to your parents if that doesn't work after church say you have to use the bathroom or something and try and have a small chat with her and make an arrangement with her or something
Report as
It was ask her out if you didn't get it. Yeah I know what you mean. I really would kill just to get the opportunity to talk to her.
Report as
talk first get to know her and when you feel like you have become friends ask her out tell her to bring a friend and you bring a good friend (that your parents like) and make it a double date
Report as
I mean I've gotten the opportunity to talk to her but just not recently.
Report as
so skip all of the stuff and go straight to planning a double date
Report as
Well I need to get past the parent firewall first. After I do that then we can start planning dates.
Report as
Is your family very religious?
Report as
Well I am. I want to go to every mass possible. Why?
Report as
ask your parents if maybe one day after church you can invite some over for dinner and a fellowship and bring her, maybe even her family
Report as
Oh yeah I would love for that. I would just have to be her though, because there are two sisters basically the same age as her. I need to single her out to show she is the one I am after.
Report as
ok so there you go but if you iviter her whole family your parents would not pay that much attention to her and to let her know you like her smile at her alot and talk to her alot and before the night is over hold her hand at dinner and than and also tell her you would really like to hang out with her again soon, and the following week ask her out
Report as
(i might disappear, if i do i'll reply by tomorrow)
Report as
I just wish it was done as easy as it is said. This will probably take a few weeks for anything to happen. But first, when I return to school on Tuesday I must compose a letter to write to them about my interest in doing something of this nature. Can this pass as my own idea?
Report as
yea i guess, just keep it original
Report as
Maybe this way I cane break the parent "firewall". This could possibly start everything out on the right foot. Have you ever did something like this?
Report as
um where i come from most of the guys i like i see more than once a week (normally parents don't the ones i see all the time) the other ones that i wouldn't see very often are ones my parents have already met and know, not very well but enough to know they are a good guy. so no i don't have that problem
Report as
I mean they know that she is a great girl that comes from a wonderful family. I just want to finally lay everything on the table. All of my feelings for her but I can't because of my parents.
Report as
tell your parents nicely and calmly,' i need you to let me make a chioce by myself'. tell them that you want them to trust you and let you do something on your own. let them know you want their appoval more than anything and i would really mean alot to you; and than ask for permission. make sure your a sinscere as possible. tell them that you feel in your heart this is the right chioce and you are ready to make it.
Report as
Yeah that does sound good. This morning while I was lying in bed I was thinking of her and what I want to do next weekend.
Report as
kl glad i could help

I'm glad you helped me. Thanks a bunch.

Depends who's doing it! Remember, if a girl is already attracted to a man, she'll be more open to his staring at her than one she isn't interested in.

To stare at a man or woman is wrong plain and simple. To look briefly as they/you walk by is natural all humans man or woman do it, but starring is rude do to the fact that it makes many people feel uncomfortable.

If she has a bf then don't but she still might think your weird. you can't just stare at her, (guys do that to me and I hate it when people like stare into my eyes when I'm talking Ect and she might too) anyway you can stare at her but not when she's looking and talk to her or make the first move and show her you like her, give her signs so she doesn't think your a creep!!! Hope I helped!!!

Having someone stare at you is creepy. Unless you want to make her feel really uncomfortable and look like a potential ax-murder in the process I recommend you don't. Just talk to her like a one normal human being to another human being. This question shouldn't have to be asked.

It is not wrong to appreciate someone's beauty, but are you staring or just noticed her and then looked away? We as women notice another woman's beauty too but what hurts is when a man is with you and then he can't seem to take his eyes off another while you are there or when they are looking for a prolonged time at you like they are unclothing you. That is when it is wrong on both counts.
