I Think Eye Contact Is Very Powerful

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 3,707 People

    One can speak volumes

    if one knows how without speaking a word. Very few will be aware or even comprehend the language of just the eyes. A man or woman who can eloquently make this conversation is rare for most overstate body language rather than just blink an eye!

    Wow. eye contact. the way directly into

    someone's soul. there's a reason doctors can tell everything about you by looking into your eyes, even if it is with an opthalmoscope.. But on an emotional front, looking into someone's eyes as they look back at you, well, it's hypnotizing.

    I can't remember who said it,

    but it was said that the eyes are the gateway to the soul. To make and maintain eye contact, especially while expressing thoughts and feelings is one of the most vulnerable experiences you will ever have. To have a person look you in the eyes while you tell them you love them or...

    I stopped abruptly to avoid crashing into you.

    I raised my startled eyes to meet your equally surprised ones. We stood frozen for a millisecond; unsure, gazes still connected. A slow grin relaxed your face. I returned a tentative smile. You stepped aside to let me pass and I smiled back in thanks. Breaking eye contact, I...

    Do you think avoiding eye contact shows a lack

    of confidence in the person avoiding it? In my case, I avoid eye contact with people older than me. They have such seriousness in their eyes that it scares me and I look away...

    I love when you unexpectedly lock eyes with a

    A little toooo powerful,

    for me at least. I mean, if I'm working, I'll make eye contact for a second, but then I'll look at the person's nose, or in between their eyes. I don't do this to be disrespectful, and I can only hope that it is not taken that way. I do, however, feel that it's definitely a lot...

    Eye contact is very powerful; however,

    I've always struggled to maintain eye contact during a conversation. I'm not sure why. It feels awkward and unnatural for me.

    I look people straight in the eye

    and smile as they approach me on the sidewalk walking toward me. Some nod, some smile, some divert their eyes, some just stare blankly, a few snarl. Mostly I make them smile, they think they maybe are supposed to know who I am, or they like being recognized by someone, anyone...

    To me eye contact shows respect.

    Not just for the person you are speaking to but for yourself as well. On another note, you can tell how someone feels about you by eye contact. If you make eye contact with someone from across the room and that person doesn't look away right away, there is something there...

    Eye contact is how the soul catches on fire.

    It is more intimate than words. Eyes have their own beautiful language that our lips do not understand. They leave us vulnerable. They give us away. Looking into someone's eyes can completely change a conversation. It gives you insight you could never get from words alone...

    at me. You always just stared at me with that beautiful smile of yours and held my hand so tight. The look in those magnificent eyes was the purest love one could pilossibly see. You always looked like you won the lotto when you looked at me. I know I would always say. "Why...

    With certain people it's just a standard

    formality. With some it's a message from across the room. With a few people it feels like a sort of recognition in their eyes, like you know them somehow.
