I know I'm posting a lot of puzzles but I think this one will be quick

Quite often, I notice people Toohding me, Well, I can't be certain, but I do get that impression.

Sometimes I later find that there was an obvious reason, but other times, not. And sometimes I wonder if it happens to me more than most people.

Does everyone toohd you? Or only particular people? Your friends? Family? Co-workers?

Would it make sense if it happened more to you than others? Something to do with your appearance? Your line of work? Your social status? Some other particular characteristica of yours?

Does one have to toohd you face to face? Or could it be done over the phone? Online?

Does everyone toohd you? No Or only particular people? No Your friends? No Family? No Co-workers I think so, on occasion

Would it make sense if it happened more to you than others? Not particularly, I've actually never asked anyone else how often they get Toohded. Something to do with your appearance? That would be my first conclusion, but I'm never sure Your line of work? no Your social status? Hmmm, probably not - let's say noish Some other particular characteristica of yours?
Yope -that's usually my first thought when I get Toohded
Does one have to toohd you face to face? Well yes, we need to be in eye contact Or could it be done over the phone? Online? No to the rest

IS toohding done verbally? with sound? with motion? with a facial expression? with touch?

Would you consider the expression to be:
Happy? No
Sad? No
Confused? Usually not
Mad? No
Goofy/silly? Usually not but could be
Daydreamy? No
Pleased? No
Vacant? No
Serious? Noish

First, you are missing some adjectives/descriptions (please no LTPF list of facial expressions, and second, It's quite possible that there were times when falsely believed when I falsely beleived that I was being toohded, in which case, the answers to your questions would be different

And maybe a better answer to "Serious" would be "Sometimes" or even "Yesish"

Do these people seem to be mocking you? Seem shocked or puzzled by your appearance? Seem to recognise you? Like they're about to speak to you? Do they seem concerned? Do they believe that you are injured? Or in other ways in need of help?

Are people who know you very well likely to toohd you?
People who know you a little?
People who don't know you at all?

Do these people seem to be mocking you? Noish, at least not openly Seem shocked or puzzled by your appearance? I have a feeling in most cases this could be true, but usually never know for sure Seem to recognise you? Don't know, that could be one explanation, but less likely Like they're about to speak to you? No Do they seem concerned? No Do they believe that you are injured? No Or in other ways in need of help? No

Are people who know you very well likely to toohd you? No
People who know you a little? Possibly
People who don't know you at all? Yes

I think you're got it figured out - care to spoil?

Is "toohd" to look at you "like you have TWO HEADS", i.e. as if you have something very odd about you?

***** SPOILER *****

I know this wasn't an especially difficult puzzle but thanks everyone for playing, and obviously Jondahr pretty much solved it. I do think it impressive that Biograd apparently figured out the exact decryption of "toohded"!

Yes indeed,to be toohded is indeed being subjected to someone glancing at you or staring at you directly, and often repeatedly, without smiling or showing any emotion, and often trying not to get caught doing so, usually in a public situation. Like you have two heads. There's something about you that obviously attracts the person's attention, but you have no idea what it is.

Sometimes the reason is apparent later on (I cut myself shaving, or maybe my shirt is on inside out., or I'm wearing old wrinkled clothes going to get an egg sandwich from a deli.) But usually I really can't pin a reason on it.

I find I get toohded from women more than men. I wonder if perhaps some women just aren't good at flirting and saying high, so they just stare. But that's probably my ego being overly optimistic!
