What do you do when a man/ woman looks at you?

This is for men and women.

I have a question. Ladies, when a man glances, looks or stares at you when you walk by each other, what is your response? When I walk by people, I usually glance at them and give a smile of "hello." The responses I get in return are varied.

I have begun noticing after some other threads here that women give different responses, and I wonder why. Some women simply never even look at me walking by. (There seems to be something near the ground that has their captivated attention. ) Some glance back and smile a hello...friendly but only in a polite way. Some women glance back but quickly look away. And a few...very few...women will look back with an admiring return look.

Men, when a woman glances at you when she walks by, how do you respond? Most women don't seem to do this, but when they do, I try to give just a polite smile that indicates nothing else. And yes, in some cases, I give an admiring return glance. What is your response?

And I wonder...is there a "correct" response? What is the expected response?

(For the record, when I am with my wife, I do not usually look at women walking by except maybe to give them a quick smile. I think I usually appear that I am more enamored with my wife than with them).

I smile back if a man smiles at me.

If they say hello I say hello back.

When they say "mmm" - well that just makes me horny!

Umm...

For me, it is usually always a glance and a smiley 'hello" nothing more...

It always depend on the situation and what type of 'glances' we're talking about here.

I get some guys sometimes that try to 'flirt' but if they're not attractive to me I just don't respond... simple.

What I like the most, is when I get this 'look' from other women... (no I'm not into women) but once, I got to the bus stop...and these 2 ladies were chatting... the one that was talking, completely stopped as I arrived... that, to me, is the best...

A look of admiration from another woman is 10 times more effective than any look from any men... IMO.

I don't walk around looking at people but if I DO by some chance notice someone looking at me, I ignore it. If they don't stop then I give them the "in your dreams" cocky smile face look. Sure I've glanced but it means nothing. I just look to see who's in my way.

Now if someone says "hi" to me, then I say it back. Rude if I don't.

It depends on the person. Non-creepy types, I return the smile, a nod or a hello.

Usually I wear big gigantic sunglasses. Hee hee, I can see them but they can't see me.

Other then that it just depends of the vibe.

I don't like to see men who are obviously with their so and crane their necks to look at me. I feel a little insulted for their ladies.

Since your behavior is different when you are with your wife, what is your intent when alone? Are you looking to provoke a reaction from the women you greet? Just wondering...

When I woman walks by and smiles at me, I look behind me to see who she is looking at.
If no one is there, I just smile and say hello.

I'm not going to say 'mmmmm' in fear of a sexual harassment charge

How about just saying 'hi' back? You know, break the ice?
Or even lifting your skirt up to your ankle to show some skin?
