Yes, That Girl Across The Room Knows You're Looking At Her.
So, that cute person in your chemistry class has stirred up some chemistry themselves and piqued your interest. One’s initial instinct is to stare at what is pleasing to the eye, however, word of advice: do not. According to parapsychologist and biologist Rupert Sheldrake, it is possible for people to sense when they are being stared at for long periods of time without any notion as to where the stare-er is, and it is exponentially more likely for the subject of attention to identify the culprit if they are within viewing range. Circumstances have shown that one does not particularly raise their romantic chances with another by ‘creeping’ on them, defined by urbandictionary as being akin to stalking without making the effort to ever talk, and to engage in such behavior will almost always ruin chances of ‘senpai noticing you.’
Writing it off as simply gazing about the room or looking at the poster behind the person are common methods, yet effectively ineffectual. Better routes to take would be wearing sunglasses and pretending to nap, cutting holes in the eyes of a magazine cover and staring away, or growing some courage and speaking to them. In regards to techniques of admiration, staring across the room at school simply is not a very effective or safe method in terms of being caught; opting for the classic watching-through-their-window stunt this Valentine’s Day is far more likely to go off without a hitch.
