I use a lot of eye contact when I talk to someone, even if I don't know them. o-o

I tend to look away during conversation. I don't mean to be rude, I've always been shy. I've become more social over the years, but I'm still shy regardless.

It depends on my mood, and how much I'm talking to them.

If I'm feeling easygoing I'll look at people I pass on the street and give them a "Hi!" Otherwise, I won't.

I can look someone in the eyes when I'm talking to them, unless it's a really deep/important conversation. I find it hard to focus my brain unless I'm looking at something inanimate, or have my eyes closed.

Depends how fierce I'm feeling. I think the only time I can hold eye contact is when I'm furious or annoyed. It's more of a warning thing for me.

I sometimes do that, but I just occasionally glance whenever I'm having a conversation with whoever it is.. I mean, even though I'm close with the one I'm speaking with, it gets awkward if I constantly stare at him/her. Too awkward for the both of us, that is.

I have a habit of avoiding people in the eye, even if it's a good friend XD I feel awkward otherwise.

Hm... For me, I'd say that I only look people in the eyes for awhile if I'm talking to them. I know it's polite and whatnot to look into the other party's eyes, but I just find that...for the lack of a better word, boring. I usually look around my surroundings every once and awhile then back at the person. It also makes things less awkward than if I were to stare at them for the whole duration of the conversation.

That's for when I'm talking to guys anyways. Girls...not so much. Usually looking at them eye-level but not into their eyes. Lmao. I'm terrible with talking to girls.

When I'm walking, I usually look straight ahead of me and occasionally glance at the ground so I don't trip or step into something. If someone passes by, I usually glance at their face for a second or two, probably because of paranoia (don't trust random strangers, lulz).

Only if they have eyes worth keeping contact with.

I sometimes look away whenever I'm conversing with someone, mostly due to my shyness, feelings of awkwardness or I just don't like the person. I used to look down or away when walking in public because I've seen many others do it, but I don't anymore. I find it pointless to do so.

Oooo.. OOOOooo.. Your eyes are ugly when I look closely.

The only time you need to look people in the eyes is when you're lying.

I enjoy eye contact. It's a good way to check if people are paying attention to what you're saying. Also, I'm generally an introvert.

As if their eyes meant anything.
