Dear Carol

I'm really bad at making eye contact--what do I do?

Dear Carol,

I have a problem. When I talk to people, I can’t look them in the eye. I don’t want to be known as an insecure person because I’m not. Is there a way I can make myself look into people’s eyes?

-Eye Dropper 

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 your cute soccer coach or your crush. Make eye contact with your mom, friends, teacher, librarian, cousins. Everybody is shy at times, but make the effort and next thing you know, you’ll be making eye contact.
