So if a girl does not make eye contact...or she does make eye contact but doesn't hold it...would you think she's just shy or not interested? Just want some opinions because I have a hard time maintaining eye contact with guys I like! Didn't know if it makes me look uninterested or not.
Well, if you were with me, I'd probably be the one worried about you thinking that I'm uninterested...lol...
I have a tendency to be more preoccupied with how I'm acting or coming off so that I often won't notice or stop to think about how the other person is reacting.
And the eye contact thing can sometimes be an issue for me too, so if you're avoiding eye contact I might wonder if it's me.
But if I did notice, I wouldn't automatically assume that you're uninterested. I mean, if you're good at making eye contact, it can be a positive thing, since that's one way to show interest...but just because you're not making eye contact doesn't mean that I assume you're not interested.
I'll look for other signs that you might be interested. The guy suggesting you smile gives one good idea.
I don't notice at all... has to be the worst type of flirting I've ever heard of anyway. Looking someone in the eyes is generally polite when being spoken to. I'm also not looking for signs that every girl I talk to may be hitting on me. I'm just not that focussed on anything so mundane.
If you can't hold eye contact very long and you are interested just flash a smile before you look away. A smile goes a long way with me, I'm not saying I approach every girl that smiles at me but if I'm interested and she flashes me a smile I'll usually make an attempt
