  • Practice looking people in the eye. Start with family and friends. And then random people like cashiers and waitresses. Practice makes perfect :)

  • Chew gum. That's how I got over mine. I used to never wanna talk to people or make eye contact. So whenever I did, I'll put a piece of mint gum at the side of my cheek and let the mint hang out. If not a fan of mint, fruity works too. I still don't look in the eyes. Tip of the nose, or the nose bridge.

    • good idea, il give it a go
