It may be a furtive glance or an impudent glare, but most men would vouch for the fact that their favourite pastime is sizing up women, and now a research has revealed that an average man spends six months of his life leching at the opposite sex.
He takes a sneak peek an average of eight times a day for up to two minutes at a time.
Girls also check out men but they are subtler at around twice a day for just 90 seconds.
According to a survey by internet firm Buy Specs4Less.co.uk , while men's obsession with women's busts makes their eyes inadvertently turn towards them before roving to their behind and legs, women are more drawn towards a man's eyes.
While most women in the survey were flattered by male attention, a third were uncomfortable being gazed at. Only nine per cent of men did not like catching a woman looking at them. More than half reckoned it was flattering, but around a third have got into trouble with their partners for ogling at other women,
"It seems eyeing up the opposite sex is a vital part of the dating game," was quoted by the Mirror, as saying.
