This specifically relates to when I am walking by someone coming the opposite direction. Somebody that I do not know!
I could venture to guess two main reasons why a girl would not make eye contact with me. First, I am not cute enough for them to want to make eye contact. Second, they are too shy to look into someone eyes. Third, maybe they didn't see me.
The reason I do not think it is the third one, is because a girl will SPECIFICALLY look down, away, or at a cell phone right when I try and initiate eye contact.
I can tell you that I am not ugly, I am a decently attractive guy. I have dated and been in relationships with beautiful woman. So I am not sure why a girl that does not know me at all would go through great lengths to not make eye contact.
but..i could be wrong. ;-)
Are ladies more surprised if a guy gives them strong eye contact. Thus not being ready for it pushes it along to likely have a shy look away or look down?

Why do girls look down or away when I try and make eye contact?
Don't like eye contact
Don't make eye contact...in American society most aren't used to greeting strangers when out
Think giving you eye contact while encourage you to approach them & they don't want that0
