What's the different between "stare" and "gaze"?
Good question! "Stare" means to look at someone or something directly for a long period of time, while "gaze" means to look at somebody for an extended amount of time, but with an affectionate expression. Ex: I stared at the food as the waiter brought it to our table. Ex: He gazed at me from across the table during our date.
