Dear Eye Dropper,
You get points for realizing that meeting people’s eyes is considered a sign of interest, friendliness, courtesy and confidence. Why not practice seeing eye to eye with people who don’t intimidate you? For now, forget about the lifeguard or your crush. Make eye contact with your mom, friends, camp counselor, librarian, cousins. Everybody is shy at times, but make the effort and next thing you know, you’ll be making eye contact.
SERIOUS STUFF? For serious issues, don’t wait. Visit our HELP! page now.

POSTED IN life, dear carol, shy, advice from Carol Weston
I'm not that insecure, but i have trouble looking into peoples eyes. I would try and squint and desperately want to look away. When I look in peoples eyes. The whole conversation seems awkward. Lauren T.

I have the same exact problem. When I talk to people, even my best friend, I don't look them in the eyes. I'm not insecure or anything but I just don't like looking people in the eyes. And for me people have pointed it out and stopped me while I talk to tell me that they're not behind them and I try my hardest to look at them but it just doesn't feel right to look people in the eyes.

Okay... but what if I have like a SERIOUS problem with eye contact. Every time I try to look someone in the eye, I feel like I'm about to cry. It's so embarrassing! Help!

If you look at their nose, it will look just as if you are looking into their eyes. Works like a charm!

Sometimes I do the same thing, but I will use the trick of looking at their nose, so that it looks like I'm looking at them, but I'm not as insecure about it.
by tennisGRLY9 on 7/18/2011 12:36:07 PM
I do that too.. I don't know why, but I feel like looking into people's eyes is just kind of awkward.
by bryisme on 7/17/2011 10:15:53 PM
Hey! I do the same thing! But i have no problem with it, for me it just makes things more intense. I didn't notice i did it until my crush pointed it out. Then my freind pointed out that he has to be paying attention to me, if not crushing on me! Just proves your quirks and be sexy and catch a guys eye (no pun inteded or funniness cuz that nor raelly a pun!) ;)
