    Where do you focus your eyes when...

    1) The lady cutting your hair is in front of you and your eyes are at a great level?

    2) You see someone you know and want to avoid in a public place?

    3) You are at a restaurant by yourself?

    My eyes go to my phone. I text and play on the internet.

    1) I usually try to have some sort of convo going so that I'm not just awkwardly staring

    2) I pretend to be lost in thought and might even pretend to call someone

    3) I don't ever do this because I hate going to restraunts by myself...but otherwise I guess I would read something

    1. Chest or wall, depending on how she looks
    2. Quick turnaround and walk away
    3. I won't eat in a restaurant alone

    1. In the mirror cause I'm too good looking.

    2. Look the other way pretending I'm looking for a store.

    3. iPhone or magazine.

    1. Wall, usually, it would be a bit weird for me to do that.

    2. Look down at my coat, hide behind someone else, or walk faster away from them :D

    3. Never done that. I would probably use my phone or something and play games.

    I would slip her some money.

    I'd just look straight ahead and walk.

    Reading material (book, Kindle) or use mobile internet (MR, FaceBook, FML mobile edition).

    1) If we were not talking, it depends on her age; some generations see eye contact as disrespectful and others see lack of eye contact disrespectful. If we were talking, I would focus on her eyes

    2) Look down or look past them

    3) Play the eye game with females I would be interested in talking to

    Well I'm surprised no one said it yet, so I will. Her boobs :eek:

    my feet, or my phone

    If I'm at a restaurant alone, then I might by toying with my phone or looking at other people.

    Someone already said chest! I will +1 that and also add, that her eyes might keep me staring in them if they are sexah.

    Just keep walking/looking ahead. Actually, did it the other day. ;)

    Haven't been in a restaurant by myself, except a couple of times. I usually people watch at that point or pull out my phone.

    Me too. :D

    2. On my iPod touch.

    3. Other people (mostly females, and they should be hot). But does not happen often (that I am lonely in a restauant).

    1) Her chest of course. If she didn't want it to be stared at, she'd cover it or not stand where I can look at it.

    2) I look straight at them and continue doing my business. If they walk over and try to initiate conversation, I just ignore them as if I didn't know them and they weren't talking to me. That way they get the message. No need to try to pretend I didn't see them, that's just a sign of lack of confidence.

    3) Any looker that is also there. Bonus points if she's not alone and it makes her boyfriend nervous (happened to me once, coming back from the gym and stopping for a quick bite. Never saw such an insecure douche in my life).

    My husband cuts my hair, normally with his shirt off. I look at his very hairy chest.
    The other direction to the one they're standing in of course. It's a bit hard to pretend you haven't seen them if you're looking right at them.
    I take a book or newspaper and read at the table. It makes you look less sad.

    Unfortunately, when she's standing in front of me cutting my hair, it's falling down into my eyes - so they're normally closed. :( The hair wash and facial, on the other hand...

    Wherever they were before - if I want to avoid someone, I avoid them.

    Either on my food, or whatever.

    That doesn't happen. If I'm stuck with the ugly one when my turn comes up, I politely give my turn to the guy after me until the good looking one comes up.

    I usually have my eyes closed so little bits of hair don't get in them.

    Take out my phone and pretend to call/ text/ look something up.

    I'm usually reading a newspaper or the NYT app on my iPhone. If not, I'll just people watch.

    Interesting... how often do you find yourself eating alone at a restaurant when a lady you want to avoid starts cutting your hair with her boobs in your face?

    :p

    I enjoy having my teeth scraped because the hygenist simply cannot help but "caress" my head. By the same token, I will only go to a woman dentist because I expect pain from women.

    I'd say, "Ro, the girls are looking great". Rosemary's been cutting my hair for over 20 years.

    Probably get lost in my iPhone.

    Reading or iPad/iPhone.

    1) I wish I had that problem. I'm...erm...follicularly challenged. :eek:

    2) Fruit Ninja!

    3) If alone at a restaurant, I'll sit up at the bar, even if I'm not intending to drink. Then I can shoot the breeze with the bartender or those around me, or at the least pretend that I'm interested in whatever's on TV.

    Bald? Cut it yourself? Or are you lost in the 80s?

    1. I look. I have them, she has them, they are in my face, what does she expect?

    2. I look at signs on the wall, I did this just yesterday, I couldn't remember her name so I pretended I didn't see her.

    3. I've never eaten at a restaurant entirely by myself, but if my guest were to get up to use the washroom, I tend to take out my phone and play around with it.
