What do you do with your eyes when someone looks at you? Do you hold focus or do you look away? Usually I look away but I only do that for two reasons, 1 is when it's a really attractive girl, I'll look away cuz I'm shy or I'll look away if I don't want her to think I'm a creeper. And sometimes I look away from other men when their talking to me but that's only because I don't want them to assume the wrong idea, like assuming I'm challenging them... (Don't get me wrong, I'm no coward so if I'm upset Or I'm teaching someone something I hold direct eye contact. But what do you guys do?
(there an old legend that says the eyes are the Windows to the soul and some of you don't hold eye contract because you don't want people to read you and look into your souls.
(I'm not too sure I believe that lesgend though)😒
anyway what do with your eyes when someone is looking at you or talking? Do you look away or do you hold eye contact?

When people are talking to me, I tend to look into their eyes to try and show that I'm paying attention and take quick glances away when it feels a little uncomfortable. When I'm talking to people, I tend to kinda speak whilst looking at their jaw maybe, but not really their eyes save for quick looks. If someone meets my eye in the street or something, I'll smile then look away.2

Lol about that quote the eyes are the windows to the soul traditional Italians have a superstition I think it quite funny they believe that if you stare into someones eyes they'll cripple your soul lol.
Anyway what I do depends.
When I am at work I always have eye contact because it's respectful and that's just what you do when it comes to business.
Casual setting like out with friends I always again look my friends in the eye because it's respectful and it shows my attention is on them.
Same with a girl I am courting I always try to look her in the eyes for the same reasons as above but also because it's intimate with them.
Now if a gal is staring at me I'll give her a quick to moderate glance usually followed by raising my eyebrow and looking her up and down a little and doing a little half smirk before going back to what I'm doing. Have no idea why but they seem to like that haha.
I do worry about staring or looking to peoples eyes sometimes though because in real life I have a rather intense gaze or look to my eyes I guess, which gets stronger when you can actually see the colors in my eyes. And I never know how people feel about that lol.1
