Do you enjoy people watching or peeping at other people?



I only ask this because as I've gotten wiser to the world, it seems there are people that do like to play the peeping game, be it at work or wherever. If so, why? Would genuinely like to know.

Am I a peeper? No. Why would I have any reason to stare at people?

Likewise I'd hate for another person to stare at me, constantly. Why would someone do this?

It's rude and nosy to stare especially for a long time.

It actually bothers me when people stare.

I've heard of stories where someone has actually hit someone for staring.

Try walking down the streets of London and stare constantly, especially at a black/coloured person and see how long it takes before someone either hits or swears at you...

That's an exception, looking at hot women! However, I don't stare too hard or make it seem obvious I'm staring. I don't want to look desperate.

I usually don't go out of my way to check out a hot chick, but there are the exception. I'll do the second walk by or the quick look back, but i really try not to make it an obvious stare or sneak glances.

It is big difference - to stare and to peep.

I don't peep. I look at people, right on their eyes.

About people who like to peep at others, I don't know why they do it.

Hurray for racism!

Next time, don't mention skin color. Any jerk/person having a bad day, regardless of skin color, can give you crap for staring.

I look at folks in their eyes sure, it's the gentlemanly thing, same for women but if there's a distance between us then i'll admire the actual figure.
peeping is bad, like going to the country park armed with your 4k vid recorder.
it's shamefull.

*ok I will peep at a hooker if the chance presents.
they dress uber sexy, most anyways, to some degree.
but it wouldn't be a shameful peep it would be a manly one.

I've been reading about it on psychology and social forums. There was one guy saying how likes to peep and people watch, he treats it like a game, he likes to read and test people. It made me a bit sick, but I've witnessed it a few times myself. If you're not on your toes people will take advantage and go out of their way to know where you are and what you're doing.

From what I've experienced, especially in the workplace, it's usually people who aren't busy that do the peeping. Or just the manipulative types in general.

well there are some people at my work that seem to make a game out of it for themselves and at first it frustrated me .... they were trying to see who they can outlast with eye contact without saying a word....I play their game without them realizing most of the time as I just stare blankly at them in the eyes.. until they blink or turn elsewhere out of discomfort..lol
