I want to stress that the following situation has happened to me with many different women, so it is a legit sticking point.
So today when I was waiting across the street at a red light across from a 711, there was a Japanese woman drinking a coffee while staring at me.
As I was pulling up to the 711 to park my bicycle, I noticed she started walking toward the entrance behind me.
I ignored her and went to buy a couple onigiri and I noticed her standing in front of the magazines poorly pretending that was her reason for being there. I noticed her looking in my direction while I was grabbing the snacks and walked up to the register.
Here is the thing, she didn't leave the convenient store until the moment she noticed I was walking out and she made sure to leave just in front of me.
While waiting at the same street, I noticed her applying lipstick while glancing at me a couple times.
This woman seemed nervous and self-conscious of everything she was doing.
The confusing thing is that lurking around a man is a type of IOI, but isn't applying lipstick in front of a man a sign of disinterest not interest?
I'm aware of assume attraction and just talking to these women anyway but still wanted to see what people think about when women behave like this.
Too much thinking! Just approach! She was probably putting lipstick on to look more attractive. I don't know how you would think otherwise!
