A guy and I do this fairly often and I never know how to respond. He's not smiling, so I don't. But I imagine it's a bit odd to smile and stare at someone so I don't know if he's waiting for me to smile at him first. Would you make eyes at a girl until she stares back and hold it for nothing? Would you hold eye contact forever across a room with a girl you're NOT attracted to? I find it weird that he doesn't break eye contact unless I do and I've been told that's the action of the confident guys who think they can have whatever they set their eyes upon.
Would love any insight into the male mind that you can offer.

I act exactly the same way. I have no trouble holding eye contact, I see it as a competition of who lasts longer. I always win. :p Some girls are tough competitors in this regard though lol
I never smile though, because that's a giveaway that you're interested. First I need SOME sign that she's at least mildly amused by having my attention on her. If she just looks away immediatly with a conceited expression on her face = big no. If she stares back *without smiling*, I guess it depends on how long it lasts -- if just for like 3 seconds it's not enough for me to approach her, because she was just checking me out. If it's FOREVER like you said, especially when coupled with some kind of body language (she does something with her hair, for instance) then I'm there already lol
And no I never do it for no reason 'cause that would create a problem and complicate both of our lives.
One last thing, confident guys don't think they can have whatever they set their eyes on. That's more like conceited or delusional. ;)1
