Advice On Managing The Deep Stare Of A Stranger

Hello Everyone!

If you observe, I hope you all had a great holiday weekend? The extra day is always helpful if the goal is to do work around the house. For many years, I used the extra day to work on my projects. I felt like grilling or throwing a party was a waste of time. As I have gotten older, I value the time I get to spend time with my sons. I rented a room down in lower Manhattan and we walked around South Street Seaport to check out the night life. My son Johnny was “cutting a rug” and dancing with random people in one location. We walked to the pier and checked out fireworks that were south of the Brooklyn Bridge. We then found another outdoor party venue and danced with more people. It was a good evening and I am glad we carved time to hang out down there. Now that I am not on the daily grind with small children, I have much more time to do my projects. I don’t have to wait until a holiday to find time for my project. How are you enjoying your summer so far? I can’t believe that we are 1/3 of the way through summer already! Make the best of the rest of your summer! Here is a question, found on Quora, that asks for advice on navigating around a stranger’s gaze. Here is the posed question and my advice below.

POSED QUESTION:

“Although we are both wearing mask I knew he smirked. His eyes and brows lit up with his smile. Almost like he’s trying to convey a message. What does this mean? We didn’t say a word but he gave me a deep stare. This isn’t our first encounter.”

MY RESPONSE:

“How long does that deep stare last? How does the deep stare make you feel? If the stare makes you uncomfortable, try your best to avoid future encounters with this man. Tell your friends about this encounter. Write the experience and his physical details in a journal. Take the man’s photo from a safe distance and share with your friends. If he is aware that you have a photo of him, he may be more inclined to not try anything further. On the other hand, if his gaze makes you feel comfortable, still do all of the above as if he creeps you out. During the next encounter, work to make small talk with the man. Smile at the man and ask a simple closed-ended question. This question will require a simple response such as yes or no or a simple response. If the man is interested, he will attempt to continue the conversation. Ask about the weather, dogs or cats, food, sports, hobbies, etc. Go with what makes you feel comfortable to chat idly about it. You give the man an opportunity to keep up the conversation or keep it moving. If he doesn’t take the bait, then smile, say good-bye, and keep it moving. I wish you much luck on getting what you want in life”.

What do you think about my take on the advice? Do you have different view on the approach? Leave your feedback down below. Have you endured awkward exchanges with a stranger in your life? If so, how did you handle it? If you are a guy who is working up the courage to talk to a woman, does a woman asking a simple question help you? What’s the weirdest or funniest way you have approached a young woman? Did it work out for you? I thank you for stopping by on my side of the world. You have many options and I am honored that you have dedicated your time to peep my content. Now that we are friends, you need to come by more often. Okay? As stated a million times previously, I appreciate your feedback, comments, and suggestions to improve my content. I wish you a peaceful evening or morning on your side of the world. You are appreciated and I hope you get a laugh or two our of my tall tales and detailed observations. I shall harass ya again soon enough so have a fabulous Monday evening that wraps up this holiday weekend! Peace out, Cub Scout my friends! 😛

Cheers!
