anyway , i know what you guys mean when you say you can see someones soul.
and yes it does feel like you are being scanned when people look at you that way. almost like they are undressing your soul??

I understand what you mean. I think much can be read in one's eyes. In fact I've always wondered why it's considered "rude" to stare, just automatically.. I think it's a very effective way to get to know a person and understand them on a level deeper than what typical small talk would accomplish.
But as for crowded places.. yes. It can be extremely uncomfortable. Maybe it depends on the particular crowd.. At times, like at school or at the mall, I've had to hide out in the bathroom just to calm down because I felt like I was being bombarded. Sensory overload. But I don't claim to be empathic necessarily.. if I am I wouldn't be able to identify any particular feelings.
I think people often lock eyes for a few moments without really realizing what's going on. It's happened with me a few times-- I'd pass someone, and something about that person, just their vibe I guess would completely fascinate me and our eyes would meet and stay there for a moment, speaking in ways, then parting as though nothing ever happened-- even though it always feels as though there was some mutual thing that just happened.
Then of course there's those that you wish you hadn't even met eyes with. There was this middle-aged guy I used to be acquainted with that lived on my street. Outwardly he was very friendly, polite and sociable. But something about him just repelled me. When he would come in to talk to my mom I'd immediately lock myself in my room, feeling this great need to take a shower or something.. I just could not trust him, and he terrified me. Not that eyes are the only way one can tell those things, of course, they just seem to help. When it comes to people you're close to it's as though you can literally read their mind/emotions just by studying them.
