Question 17: What if a guy looks at your butt?

OK, so after a looooong break, we're back to answering the 76 questions we received on Valentine's Day. We promised to answer them ALL, so we're going to get to it before it's Valentine's Day 2012!

Today, we'll take on two questions - both about guys touching you or looking at you. Both can make you feel kinda weird.

Dear PLS,
It's sorta happening to me, but I witness it all the time. What do you do if a boy looks at your butt..?
Just A Thought, 12

First off, your body is yours - all yours. So if someone is looking at you in a way that feels uncomfortable, you can say, "Please stop staring. It's not polite." And you can always talk with a parent, teacher, or school counselor about something like this. You don't have to put up with someone looking at private parts of you, like your butt. Obsessive staring of any kind is creepy, even if the person is looking at your face.

Sometimes someone looks at you a lot because they're curious or they think you're pretty. So it can be a sort of compliment. It's part of the job of growing up to figure out what's OK and what's not. That goes for boys and girls. And I think it's fair to say that both guys and girls can be clueless about stuff like this.

All right, Pink Locker girls - what's your advice about boys who look at butts? And tell the truth: Have you ever stared at a guy, secretly or not-so-secretly?

Think pink!

Well I think you should just say something like this:" Eyes up here bub."
And then point to your eyes. And my older brother has alot of friends in my grade... And he has some hot friends too. So yeah while they are playing x-box or airsoft, I sometimes take a liiiitttlle peak. But never at the butt, that would be scary. Sometimes I even get to know these guys, or even become good friends. But it's my little secret that I like them. TEEEHEEE:)

Yah, this is happening to me, too and a lot of other girls. This might sound a little mean, but sometimes you just have to give them a little glare.

I agree with Jemma. Say something like, I don't really like it when you do that. Then again, I've never dealt with boys...

I agree with curly33 because they might get embarrassed but it's a lot easier than saying anything. It also depends on the boy if you think that it's too harsh to glare, then don't but if they are like some boys that I know, they won't listen if you just talk.

Yup it has happened to me before. I think you should just tell him to stop staring, that way he will feel embarrassed and stop staring at you. I'm not being mean or anything but if you feel uncomfortable, you should just do that.

its happened to me before too. this cute guy at my church kept on staring at me. i guess i got used to the feeling because once i said hi to him and when i turned around i caught him looking at me. though if a guy likes you or not, don't ever let him look at or touch any part of your body.

Ick If a guy likes you seriously he shouldn't stare at your butt it's pretty creepy. I mean if a guy stared at my butt I'd be tempted to slap him there are other ways for him to show u he likes u. I've been accused of butt-staring but I'd never stare at a butt. ewwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwww

Ya I suggest you tell him it makes you feel uncomfortable when he does it. Chances are he wasn't doing it on purpose (Sometimes I find my gaze landing on something random like on someone's face or any random object but I don't do it on purpose) and he might be a little embarrassed. But ya I suggest telling him.

@Anonymous It isn't OK if a 40 year old guy is staring at you, so please let an adult know. It's good that you're avoiding him, but he could be bothering other girls.

scared hes mad, you should look for a little sign called mirroring. Is he sorta copying you NOT on purpose? Example: If you touch your ear, is Mr. Perfect touching his ear at the same time?? I know, it sounds crazy but it's true. Try it

Dear scared hes mad, Don't lose hope yet! Probably the guy likes you and thinks you don't like him back becuase you moved your hand away. Maybe you can write him a letter and slip it into his locker at school if you are to scared to talk to him face-to-face.

I have had guys stare at my butt before, and my response is always along the lines of "My face is up here, bub." It scares them off really easily. Anyway, a guy in my church class touched my hand very briefly. It was a little creepy 'cause he's been my friend forever.

This is a very common thing these days..like at school when a girl gets up from a seat guys will look at her butt..it also doesnt help how tight girls wear there jeans these days..But unless a guy is touching you, then i would just ignore staing bc it happens to me and my friends all the time.

i thinnk i can relate to this. at church there was this guy i had met. during praise and worship, we were all having fun. my friend did somthing funny with his hair. and when i started laughing, he turned and smiled at me. after that, during the service, i'd always feel someone staring at me. and when i looked in his direction, i saw that it was him staring at me. from that day on, he stared at me like he liked me. but to answer your question, dont let anyone look at you that way. it's impolite, rude, and you need to tell him to stop.

Everyday in fifth grade at breakfast this guy would stare at me and my friends. Then one day I was all alone and he told me some nasty things, I didnt know what to do. Then out of nowhere my crush came over and started yelling at the guy. He saved my life. Now that my crush left the school any time that guy looks at me I know what to do.

I think boys are gross! I was taking in the trash once and this boy who was walking by started staring me oddly, so I told him to stop staring at me and look at the trees. I was hoping he'd get mad and run away, or yell at me or something, but instead, he obediently stared at the trees. I was fuming! I wished my best friend Marissa was there, since she ALWAYS takes care of problems like that. She can just glare at a bully and they'll freak out. She's awesome!!! Scared hes mad, I LOVE your story! That is sooooo cute and romantic! Brandon totally likes you

Good look, scared hes mad and Brandon!

Well I asked my older brother (junior year-football player) and he said its because boys especially middle-high school are curious about girls or theyre really into you and think about bad stuff what I do is stare at them like they have a green head or somthing, then they get embaressed. :)
