Ever wonder why guys are staring but never speak? There could be several reasons for his cold feet and if you know them, you can take the lead and get him to do what you want. Be careful though! There are also reasons to let that sleeping dog lie. Here’s 5 reasons why do guys stare at me and never smile.
When you want him to cross that room or the street to introduce himself, you must first assess the situation and decide if you are going to turn up your feminine charm or be thankful that he isn’t speaking or smiling back at you. Here’s dating advice on what to do and when he’s staring endlessly.
You are not approachable
I used to have this issue with not being approachable in New York City. The thing is, wether or not you want to be approached depends on so many things. What’s the setting? Your face may be screaming ‘don’t bother me’ if you are not in a social setting, if the weather is terrible or are in deep thought.
If you have bitchy resting face or even sad resting face like I do, you may need to perk things up a bit. One way to know if you have this issue is to think about if friends and family frequently ask you what’s wrong even when you feel great. You could have sad resting face.
In order to appear approachable you should look beautiful, but also know how to turn on that come hither stare. Work on your brief glance up and away from him, but never approach him or make the first move. He needs to know what he wants and have the confidence to go after it.
He knows you’re out of his league
If the guy is leering at you without a break in his glance and not smiling, he could be a stone cold nut case. It could also be that he knows you’re out of his league altogether. He may just be watching and having you star in his brief fantasy. I know it’s creepy but we are women. It’s the story of our lives.
If this guy has NOTHING to offer it’s best he stay right where he is and do all of the staring he wants. Have you ever stopped to think that maybe he’s married and just wanted to admire another woman? Whatever the case, dating any man that you are too fabulous for mostly ends in tragedy.
He’s dusty and broke
Ok, here’s the scenario… You feel a pair of eyes burning through you, even undressing you. However, at first glance of him, you notice he’s very plain or average in his attire. Maybe his shoes look a little more worn than most. Sure, he looks well kept enough to NOT appear homeless and he could even be in amazing shape, BUT that doesn’t mean he has the funds to court you.
Avoid men who feel that a $50 date is breaking the bank and immediately go in for a kiss after only one date. When guys try to kiss you on the first date, they are simply testing your morality.
Only Fans allows women to charge for men’s stares but unfortunately men get a free pass when we are out in public. Do not engage and keep it moving. He could be a broke dusty. Gross!
He’s waiting for your cue
Now, here’s the fun part. Maybe you’re at a fund raiser or a charitable event and you catch a gentleman’s eye. He wants to introduce himself but he has other options. If you want to get to know him, you may have to send him a signal that you are interested too.
Even if he’s staring but never smiles, you should see if it feels right for you to flash a friendly smile first. Remember, he may not even realize he’s staring! Let him know that you are aware of his admiration and let your coy smile be his cue to step up to the plate.
He’s a Beta Male
I’m going to sum this section up in one word: spineless. If you’re wondering, why do guys stare at me but never smile, then consider how hard it may be for him to approach a woman. He could be a Beta Male. You may be the type of woman a beta male is attracted to if you typically make the first move and are sexually aggressive.
There may be nothing wrong with that, but it’s important to understand Beta male traits and decide if you want to deal with the constant ego stroking and self deprecation.
Que sera sera! I am a firm believer in whatever the future holds for me is either a lesson or a level up. When a guy is smiling but won’t approach or smile back, it could be for any number of reasons and MOST of them are not so good.
We hope you got some great information and have an answer to the question, why do guys stare at me and never smile.
