When talking to a woman is bad on my part to make direct eye contact by looking down or away?

I have been the shy guy so making direct eye contact when talking to a girl has been tough. Though I'm trying my best to make eye contact when talking to a woman. I think this has been the hamper of my dating life. I sometime be walking some where I can tell from the side of my eye I have a girl/woman look at me but I never turn around to look back at them. I had one lady one night when I was on my way to the store walk pass by me and smiled at me.

The reason I don't look at women is because I don't want to feel that I'm some creep and I feel they may have thoughts about my physical appearance not in a good way.
