Guys don’t hide it very well, do they? Although some of them might claim to be masters at not getting caught, you know when a guy is staring at you and you’re determined to know WHY they’re doing it to you.
The answer is very simple.
Guys stare at girls because they’re feeling attracted to them.
Rarely will a guy check you out and stare if it’s for reasons other than a strong physical attraction.
A man’s first attraction trigger is normally by sight.
It’s an instinctual uncontrollable urge. A feeling. They see. They look. They stare.
Some of them will keep their eyes on you whether they know (you know) or not and will continually do it regardless of the situation or how creepy it looks to you.
Some guys want to get caught because they think if you know they’re checking you out – you’ll be more likely to meet or approach him. True or not, it’s how guys think.
Some guys don’t want to get caught because it unnerves them. Once they’re found out they look away quickly but will do it again and again as the whole thing repeats itself.
Some guys try and stare you down like you’re a piece of meat. Checking out all your body parts. They’ll give the “eye” and try to dominate your from afar as if you’re some sort of prey itching to get on his sexual dinner plate.
You know the type probably, they try and act all cool with a serious look on their face as if they mentally beckoning you to come to them.
Other guys WILL stare at you a little just before they approach you but if you’re asking this question then you’ve already experienced that answer for yourself.
IF you’re being stared at a lot and not approached you can read the answer in an article I wrote over here: Why Does A Guy Stare At A Woman But Not Approach
Let’s dig a little deeper and explain something you might not know about guys and their physical attraction towards a woman.
When he sees you and is feeling attracted to you – it FEELS GOOD.
He also becomes slightly sexually aware. Not excited or hard (for most) – just a little more aware.
Since it feels good to look at beauty AND it increases his sexual drive a little – a guy will almost feel an uncontrollable urge to stare at the women he’s most attracted to.
Since gazing and then indulging in this act does feel good – for some guys it becomes borderline addictive and they just can not get enough of it.
Unfortunately, like most addictions, they’ll need more of that high and will then always be constantly searching for it. Which leads them checking out pictures on the internet, watching sex, and checking out any movie where his most desirable woman just might get naked.
Guys will stare at you (most of the time) because they like what they see and it makes them feel good.
Sure some of them might be saving it for later use but that’s not always the case.
If their gaze continues it’s because they’re trying to make eye contact to approach you or have you approach them which might spare them from being rejected.
Men have an attraction trigger instinctively built inside of them which is subconscious and beyond their control. When they see something they find attractive it takes over them for a brief second and sometimes longer.
When they see beauty or what they find beautiful their instinct is triggered and they will stare. Some for longer than others.
Some want to get caught. Some don’t. Some try to hide what they’re doing. Some don’t.
Lots of guys don’t even realize they’re doing it.
This urge or subconscious trigger when left unchecked or not thought out can happen to a guy at any point even if he’s already in a relationship and actually with her.
A guys stares or checking out women doesn’t end in real world situations and often overflows to any form of media and it’s not limited to naked photos or sexual acts.
Men LIKE to look at any woman they find attractive because it makes them FEEL something which is normally good.

Here’s something to think about when it comes to guys staring at women – how would you answer?
When a man who’s in a relationship looks at (or “ogles”) another woman it means…?
- He wants to cheat and will do so if he can “get away” with it.
- He’s comparing how you look to this other woman and wondering if he can “do better.”
- He’s “storing her away” in his mind for future fantasies.
- He’s a red blooded male (and “all men look” so it means nothing at all.)
