V2 Vocabulary Building Dictionary



Definition: to stare or look at someone in a lustful, flirtatious, or desirous way

Synonyms: leer, gawk, stare


Tips: Ogle comes from German origins and originates from a word that meant "eye." To ogle someone is to stare suggestively and possibly intrusively. Ogle can also be used to denote staring at something you want, like a piece of chocolate cake, but this is not really the correct usage.

Usage Examples:

The men sat at the bar, ogling women as they passed by. (leering at, gawking at)

"I could feel him ogling me, and it made me feel uncomfortable," said Martha. (gawking at, staring at with desire)

Teenagers often ogle each, but they're usually too shy to strike up a conversation. (leer at, gawk at)

He ogled the woman in the bikini as she walked along the beach. (stared at desirously)
