i only really noticed it recently but when I'm talking to people I never look in their eyes... I don't know why it just really scares me! I thought that maybe no one else noticed it but asked a few friends and quickly found out that they all said they noticed it and thought it was weird... so I was wondering what would you think if a guy never looked you in the eye when talking to you? should I try and change that?
I do that too, without even realizing. It's actually really annoying because people think I don't like them because of it. Saying that, it would probably help you to try and improve on it, although I'm not sure how. It serves as a whole other non-verbal communication technique, which is very helpful. It also really shows that you're listening, and I think everyone likes to be heard. To try and improve, the only help I could give you would be to keep in mind your "faulty" eye contact situation so when you are talking to someone next, you'll remember to look them in the eye and after awhile I would think it would become a habit. Anyway, lots of luck :)
Also, if you find anything that helps, would you mind telling me?
I think that when you talk to a girl and don't have eye contact it makes her or the person think that your too shy and don't have the gut to look in the eyes or it also shows that your no listening to what he\she has to say. I think if you do try and look at the person once or twice during conversation the person will know that you are interested in the conversation and that you're paying attention to him\her.
Boy howdy! You should change it like a pair of month-old underwear. Do whatever it takes, but ALWAYS look anyone you're talking to right square in the eyes. It will make a huge difference in your life.
If you met me in person, you'd melt because I stare people right in the eyes and don't look away until they're done talking lol. Unless they have a weird eye twitch (which makes my eyes water), or if they are crazy gorgeous ladies in which case I need to look away so my brain doesn't shut down.
