but heres's an article related to this that might interest you.
I know or get the sensation that someone is staring at me. I just happen to turn and meet the eyes of the staring party, then they all of a sudden glance somewhere else.

It happens to all of us it starts with that really creepy feeling. A strange tingle on the back of your neck that eventually evolves into a full on chill that travels down your spine. Suddenly everything you were thinking about goes away, and all of your senses are tuned into the surrounding environment. Even though you are completely alone, you still cannot convince yourself of that apparent truth.
What I’m talking about is the sometimes occurring sensation that you are being watched, which can really be quite upsetting. The really odd thing is that over half the time that I get that feeling, I am actually proven right. It may be my kids hiding behind a couch, or a co-worker playing a practical joke.
Isn’t it funny that once you persuade yourself that someone has an eye (or two) on you, your behavior immediately changes? Suddenly you tend to get very self-conscious, and self-awareness jumps 100%.
Then there are other times when you are being watched, and you don’t even have a clue. This can be a really good or really bad thing, depending on who has you under surveillance.
Sometimes I am aroused from a deep sleep by the feeling that someone is watching me and most of the time I find one of my kids looking at me from the doorway in the bedroom. Just this morning on the way into work I was looking at a guy read from a piece of paper while we sat in traffic. After about a minute the guy looked over his shoulder directly at me.
What is it that causes this sensation? Is this some kind of 6th sense?
