Every so often I make eye contact with some guy and I feel like it might be there. that's probably my imagination. But it's just so hard to tell if it's really there on not. this one time a couple weeks ago I kept looking at this guy who was obviously gay, and looking away, and he kept doing it too. and then it was weird when he got off the bus. It's just so hard to tell if the stories I come up with in my head about strangers and nonverbal communication are true. like for instance today, I was singing to myself as I walked home, and I unexpectedly came across this couple just standing on a street corner. I was embarrassed and I stopped singing...they both had big smiles on their faces, and I wondered if they were smiling because of my singing. It was weird.
Idk, interactions with strangers are weird in general, because they're usually so short and ambiguous.
to the poster above me: yeah, I think I might do that. I'm constantly looking at everyone around me. But generally only when I'm riding the bus or something, or walking down a hall full of people I don't know. I can see why it might weird people out, so I've been trying to stare less lately.
"If you don't have a point to make
Don't sweat it
You'll make a sharp one being so kind
And I'd sure appreciate it
Everyone else's goal's to get big headed
Why should I follow that beat being that I'm
Better than fine"
