I understand there's various possible reasons behind eye contact between two people, but this guy makes it with me every day and looks me right in the eyes with an almost surprised look on his face. I haven't ever smiled at him so I think that might be why he doesn't, but he doesn't look mean, just always surprised. any thoughts on this?
maybe he gets surprised when you catch him looking at you. happens to me too, so he may be the shy type. when I'm looking at a girl and she turns and happens to see me, I look away real quick. is that what he does?
It's probably as simple as something about you interests him, do you like him? Do you ever talk, and if you don't why not? It sounds like you don't really know him that well, you could always just ask him why he looks so surprised. :P
And just a thought, why not smile? See what he does. :)
he probably is really into you and likes you a lot. That's probably why. When I first met my boyfriend, he'd always have this look on his face to just see me and then turn away. hmm maybe talk to him about it? Sounds like a crush to me.
Ohhh yes... I know the exact look you mean. Its almost a dazed and surprised look at the same time... kind of, soft, but staring at the same time. Its hard to describe it, because it contradicts itself but I know what you mean.
Either he naturally had a wide-eyed look, or he thinks you're breathtaking. ;)
This is happening to me to! Like when I walk through the doors at school, and he's at his locker, he'll just stare, mouth kinda open, eyes get big.. and it looks exactly like he's surprised! Well I'm trying to figure this out as well in my case, but as far as advice, I would try smiling when he does the "surprise stare"... and let me tell you, I've done the smiling and they become even more shocked, but all guys are different.. so still try it! :)
Maybe, he is starting to think abotu whether something could happen between the two of you. Or he could already like you and he is simply trying to see if he can get a reaction out of you by acting a different way to see if you notice.
