Why do people like to see their neighbours’ faces? And why do they hate them?
The latest installment of the annual face-to-face face survey found that people don’t like to be stared at.
They like to stare at the face of their neighbours, as well.
In fact, they’re so drawn to them that they can’t help but stare, according to a recent survey.
They don’t even realize they’re staring at it, because they’re trying to look at the same face that the people in front of them are staring at.
The face-taunting phenomenon is the latest in a long line of odd behaviours that have popped up over the years, including the habit of sticking your tongue out and the bizarre habit of wearing a black face mask.
And it’s not the first time we’ve seen it.
We’ve been seeing it for decades.
The phenomenon first came to light in the late ’60s and early ’70s, when people were beginning to realise they were being watched.
In one case, a woman in an East Village hotel was confronted by an intruder who tried to break in through the locked doors.
The man then proceeded to throw a bag of cash at her, telling her she would be paying for it.
In another case, when a woman at a bar was confronted in front the mirror by a man who tried unsuccessfully to grab her breast, she called 911 and tried to run away.
Other women have also reported being stared at by strangers, or being stalked in public.
Some people have also experienced physical attacks, which is why people have been turning to social media to share their stories of stare-downs and other such incidents.
As of this writing, more than a million people have shared their stories online, with more than 30,000 comments.
One man, named James, told the Daily News that he had a face-eating disorder when he was a teenager.
In 2006, when he first met a man in a nightclub, James told his mother he was trying to get out of a relationship and was going to do something about it.
“I had no idea what that was,” James said.
“So I went to the police station and they gave me a diagnosis of depression and that’s what happened.”
James said he now tries to keep a low profile and has been avoiding strangers since.
“It just scares me, I don’t know how anyone could take a face like that,” he said.
But other women have taken to social networking sites to share the stories of face-sitting.
One Facebook user, who goes by the handle “Tiny,” shared her story of being harassed and stared at in a bar in a suburb of Melbourne, Australia.
“He [the man] walked up behind me and he stared at my face and I didn’t react,” she said.
She said that after the man left, she started to feel uncomfortable in the bar and didn’t want to go back.
She also posted a picture of her bruised face to the site, where she received more than 1,300 comments.
“At first I didn�t know what to say, but it was too much for me to handle,” she wrote.
She continued: “I just kept going back, trying to tell myself I would get over it, that I was okay, but nothing changed.
I just kept looking at the pictures and thinking it was happening to everyone and it wasn’t.
I was so mad, and I just felt like I was getting sick of it.”
