Why do guys have prolonged eye contact with girls sometimes? I saw this guy that I liked and still like. I know that he liked me too but I don't know if he still does because we hadn't seen or spoken to each other in weeks. This time, I saw him, he saw me, I looked at him, he looked at me and we held eye contact for somewhere between 3 and 5 seconds. Then, we said hello. Why could he have held prolonged eye contact with me? Why do guys usually prolong their eye contact with girls?
