I tend to maintain eye contact a lot, I just think it's manners but I will tone it down if I feel someone is getting uncomfortable, but I think I usually have inviting eyes so it rarely happens, so do you look into people's eyes a lot? plus looking at people's eyes is flirty sometimes haha
that was a new year's resolution for me last year, to look at people when I'm talking to them. I try to not like stare them down so I look away occasionally, but yes I think I have been able to maintain appropriate eye contact and I've noticed that I feel more connected to people when I talk to them and also I agree, eye contact can get a little sexy/flirty if done right.
It depends if I'm interested in what their saying but I do that as well - I almost always maintain eye contact if someone is talking to me.. it's proper manners, it usually means I'm interesting in what they're saying and engaged in the conversation.
I try to look into people eyes when I talk to them, I really do, but I think it's somehow really personal and I tend to look everywhere else than their eyes, It's like I'm avoiding eyes contact... I get told that a lot, by friends and family and once my badminton trainer told me I did it too.
Yes! I thought I was the only one ha ha I always have to have eye contact when talking to someone. I feel like they're actually listening and sometimes you can figure them out if they can't look you in the eye lol. and yeah I agree it can be flirty :) haha
Yes, I think it's a little irritating for the other person to have someone look everywhere EXCEPT at them. It's just a way to let them know you're paying attention and listening, plus you won't get distracted as easily. And like you said, it's just manners to look at people when they talk unless you're busy doing something at the moment.
