Hi all, so today I did something stupid (well not stupid just daft) I was sitting in class and my classmate sat opposite me (both sides of the class face each other) anyway I stared at him for for what felt like a few seconds but I could tell he was a ntimidated. Anyway he started staring at me back and I glanced at him and I would look away and this happened loads of times. With him looking away at times also. There was also a time when he seemed to take a picture of me with his phone and laughed with his freind towards me (well, he didn’t stare at me directly but it felt like it) anyway it’s gonna be tense now because he will think I want to fight him or something which I don’t want. It wasn’t as bad towards the end of class, we seemed to both avoid staring at each other. So, what should I do?
- Stare briefly but not intimidating
- Keep the head down
I’d just avoid him. It doesn’t have to be awkward if you leave it be and don’t do it again. I don’t think most people want to fight, and I bet he wasn’t laughing at you (could have been a coincidence). Most of the time when we think people are laughing at/talking about us, we are wrong. People are too self-absorbed to worry about others all too often.
steer clear and let it die down, you never know what someone might do.
Often times when I feel like someone is against me, it turns out to just be my mind playing tricks. I’d just try my best to avoid him.
What is it about him that makes you want to stare?
dont worry its normal…sometimes people get into staring competitions… best thing to do is to just do the humble thing and look away. Its the right thing to do because we dont want to make them feel uncomfortable. Just be the good guy and God will bless you
Ya hopefully, will do.im not sure, he is a colorful character and very opinionated but it was because he sat directly opposite me which was new, it was a girl that sat there last week. I was just in a daze and he was in my line of sight. I think his confidence intimidates me and I try to protect myself by acting hard.
I can see that, and I would imagine having class like that is kinda stressful. I know I’d be stressed.
To be honest, I get intimidated by colorful characters when I see traits in them I’m envious of and want for myself.
The ability to talk openly and with confidence, make a joke and charm a crowd. It’s kind of frustrating that I can’t do that like them.
Makes me judge myself as not as good as them.
I try to remember everyone has their own problems, and nobody is perfect, I’m not perfect, but I’m working on it,
