How many of you can actually hold direct eye contact with someone? I notice a lot of people will either, glance at you occasionally or just avoid eye contact directly. Like, if you notice while you're walking down the street or at the mall, people are usually staring at their cellphones, looking at their feet, or something. I mean its nothing bad cause some people tend to feel uncomfortable with someone looking you in the eyes, but I was always raised by my pops to look folk in the eyes, its a "reassurance" thing. So it doesn't really bother me, its natural, how about you?

I think it depends on the demeanor of your stare. Im sure even i'd feel uncomfortable if someone was trying to drill a hole in me while looking at me, lol. Its good to stare girls in the eyes though, they like it lol

I Went through that in middle school and freshman year for awhile, you just have to keep your chin up, when you feel that strange force that tries to make you put it down just fight it off and be resilient. Over time your esteem and chin will remain at head level.

I try really had staring people in the eye. Naturally I'll look at the ceiling or at the floor , but if I'm conscious about it I'll make eye contact. Of course it's easier if you or someone else is wearing sunglasses

I really don't like to look people in the eye, but i'm a very introverted person so i spend most my time by myself. When walking i do look down at the floor and keep my eyes locked from straying up and making accidental eye contact with someone. It sounds strange to put it that way like its serious or something lol its not like we just had sex by having our eyes meet it just makes me uncomfortable. I have been shy my entire life, and although i have recently come out of my shell a lot from what i use to be i am for sure more comfortable by myself and not around other people.

There are times when i feel like i really need to keep eye contact with someone and i will but the situation rarely comes up. For the most part i don't think its really that necessary .

I have difficulty maintaining eye contact, or what many would consider "direct" eye contact. Much of it is because I was born legally blind, plus an astigmatism on top of that. When I'm looking at someone or something, my eyes can't focus on just one point (a well-known acting technique, used mainly when cameras are rolling.) Normally, my eyes are constantly scanning around wherever I'm looking. I have to scan, because the time it takes to focus on objects at a distance really throws off my reaction time. This scanning behavior is great for gaming, I've found, as well as reading quickly. But it can also throw people off in conversation unless they take time to get used to seeing it from me.

I'll admit, it's left people with a negative first impression of me, thinking that I'm somehow dishonest. Between that and being partially deaf in one ear, some people thought I was prone to ignoring them, too.
