I got this huge problem and I wondered if anyone felt the same or if you could just help me somehow... I just can't look guys into the eyes. I don't have that problem with every person, just guys I don't know (my family, girl friends and even guys I know for a long time are fine). But as soon as a guy I don't know talks to me, I'm in trouble. I can talk to them just fine, but I can't keep eye contact or (even more difficult to me) touch him lightly on the arm to point something out etc.
Is that social anxiety? Can I do anything against it? I tried to just force me to keep eye contact or touch a guy... but I can't. It's like a primary instinct to look away :-/ I feel like Raj from the Big Bang Theory, HELP!

You don't have to stare. Eye contact 1/3 of the time when talking and 2/3 when listening is good.0
