It can be for anything: talking to a stranger, talking to a superior, talking to someone you like, etc.
How much eye contact do you generally hold when you are talking with another person?
What Guys Said 4
Almost never. I glance at their eyes a bit here and there but mainly my eyes are on the floor or off to the side. It's just how I've always been. I don't feel comfortable making eye contact with others.1
Usually when I'm talking its constant, but when they're talking it depends on them. If they talk with their hands, I'll usually look at their eyes, hands, and into the distance if they gesture towards a certain direction. Sometimes if its a girl and she's got a lot of cleavage hanging out, my eyes will wander, but like, I generally have good controll of that, 'cos I'm not that way inclined. Actually, guys looking at girls t*ts when they're talking to them has become way less of a problem.1
Generally constant unless I'm doing something at the time or see something interesting.1
absolutly none, unless I'm talking to a girl I like. then as much as possible :)1

I generally tend to hold eye contact only when I'm interested in the conversation (or person for that matter). If I'm looking away it's either because I'm not into it or I'm busy with something else.2
I try to hold a lot of eye contact, but I look away occasionally.0
the entire time. looking someone in the eye while talking doesn't mean you're staring them down2
