Eye contact must be mutual, if the person does not reciprocate, give it up, because it becomes staring and that makes people uncomfortable.

It isn't easy for me to have eye contact with others, especially strangers! I try hard to overcome this weakness in me but it's really hard.
It's easy only when it's my family and best friend! People whom I'm so much used to.

And yeah, it has something to do with confidence. Most of the time ppl who avoid eye contact have no much confidence of themselves.

I was just curious about something so I thought I'd ask..

Is eye contact difficult for you? Is it even anything you really notice or think about? Whether it's easy for you or torture, I'd really like to know why?

I know that it can be a completely personal experience between two people. Well, at least that's what it looks like in these shows (anime or otherwise). Personally, I can't really do it. It terrifies me to no end. I guess I just don't want to actually see them when they look down on me or judge me. In the end it just sorta leaves me by myself (insert forever alone.jpg) but I'm fine with that. Can a person's confidence really be measured by the amount of eye contact they can maintain?

Anyway, that's how I feel about the subject. Lemme know what you think about it.


i cant do it a lot of people cant i mean i cant at all complently impossible for me lol

I agree with you.

I can't make eye contact while up close to a person, but I'll make eye contact with anyone on the streets.
It's just an uncomfortable feeling that they're most likely picking at all my flaws in their mind.

Sometimes I feel weird looking into someones eyes and avert them.

I like to keep eye contact when I'm talking to someone, but usually they'd be the ones breaking eye contact so I'd stop because I assume it makes them feel uncomfortable although it's just my way of showing them that I'm listening and interested in what they have to say.

Same. Although sometimes they feel threatened and increase their own eye contact intensity, turning it into a staring contest.

I don't like eye contact and so if I know the person well enough I don't bother with it. If it is someone I do not know very well I will maintain eye contact but I switch which eye I am looking at constantly just for the hell of it all while trying to send a message mentally telling them I do not wish their presence near me any longer.

When I'm speaking to some one I keep eye contact intermittently, it's not polite to stare into their eyes the whole time your talking. Makes people feel as if your trying to intimidate them and it's creepy... as if your trying to stare into their soul.. but if that's what your going for then keep eye contact 100% of the time!

I really can't maintain eye contact with strangers, only friends and close family members. It's like I force myself to try and make eye contact but then end up not listening to what they're saying.

This is something I've tried to change about myself.

Making eye contact with people is difficult for me. It feel embarrassing as if they have invaded my private space, or maybe it feels like, I have seen something I shouldn't have.

The darkest recesses of their souls where their blackest thoughts lie?
