    Eyes are the gateway to the soul and can reveal so much about a person. Tend not to trust somebody who has difficulty keeping eye contact.

    When I was younger I did not make eye contact. I was really shy and afraid to. I looked at my feet and the floor until someone said I needed to work on my self confidence.

    I think looking somebody in the eyes, makes whatever conversation so much more meaningful. Looking somebody in the eyes anytime, changes the situation completely.

    It's easier to keep a conversation short when you don't look them in the eye. It also helps with not miss leading men into thinking I'm interested in them.
