You have egg on your chin ?

churchandstate · 24/11/2019 16:00

Wants your seat?

steff13 · 24/11/2019 16:01

Smile at him?

LonginesPrime · 24/11/2019 16:01

Read a book? Listen to music? Play on your phone?

Or just look him in the eye and smile? Or look at their shoes? That often works to get them to stop.

He's probably wondering why you keep looking at him.

CactusAndCacti · 24/11/2019 16:03

He's from the north and doesn't know that looking vaguely in someone's direction down south is a really bad thing.

Fraggling · 24/11/2019 16:03

Sometimes people find other people interesting to look at.

Just one of those things. Don't worry about it.

If it was bothering you then eye contact with a glare sometimes stops it.

DisplayPurposesOnly · 24/11/2019 16:03

There's a really interesting sign just over your head.

He's shortsighted and not really thinking about where he's pointing his head.

You look muggable.

You remind him of someone and in three days' time, he'll realise its Great Aunt Helen.

Perhaps you look just like the photo of the older woman he's been chatting to on that fetish site he uses.

ChazsBrilliantAttitude · 24/11/2019 16:08

He is writing a novel in his head and you are perfect for one of the characters

MitziK · 24/11/2019 16:11

You remind him of his Nan.

BigFatLiar · 24/11/2019 16:14

Wondering if you've absconded from a care home and maybe he should let someone know?

donquixotedelamancha · 24/11/2019 16:16

Yeah it's that. Don't worry, the poor bugger will learn when he's stupid enough to say hello to a stranger.

BarkandCheese · 24/11/2019 16:17

He thinks he knows you from somewhere, is trying to work out where and if he’s being rude not saying hello. Later he realises that you look a lot like that actress in the thing he was watching night before last, but that you couldn’t have been her because that thing was filmed thirty years ago and she’d be in her eighties by now.

c3pu · 24/11/2019 16:18

Log it with 101, sounds like he's committed a thought crime.

dottiedodah · 24/11/2019 16:19

Probably any of these then! Just felt a little uncomfortable really .He was already sitting down ,and I wasnt looking his way but could feel him looking at me ,not above my head .Maybe I reminded him of his GF mum or something ! Mitzik My own son is 25 ! Im not able to look like his Nan hopefully , please be kind!

He was thinking, "Blimey, that lady looks paranoid."

TheCanterburyWhales · 24/11/2019 16:20

He thinks you're Judy Dench?

GiveHerHellFromUs · 24/11/2019 16:21

@TheCanterburyWhales isn't she in her 80s?

AmazingAardvark · 24/11/2019 16:21

He’s trying to work out where your scarf is from because he thinks it would be just the thing for his mum’s Christmas present this year. She’s SO hard to buy for.

lumity · 24/11/2019 16:24

Sounds slightly disconcerting OP, but, you know, some younger men do have a thing for older women. Look at Macron. It takes all types.

Aridane · 24/11/2019 16:24

It's because you are stunning


He's just gazing ahead vacantly

P1nkHeartLovesCake · 24/11/2019 16:24

His sitting wondering why the hell you keep looking at him....

SerenDippitty · 24/11/2019 16:24

He gets a kick out of making older women think he fancies them?

ClapHandsAndSaveTheFairies · 24/11/2019 16:25

It's a disguise and behind his curious face he's actually hatching out a plan to capture London from below
