Its normal! Watch some videos of people talking to each other. When you are talking and they are listening, it is usual for the talker to look away and for the listener to look at you. If you look at them when you are talking, your body language says "this is important..." and it becomes intense for the listener. After a while of this, the listener becomes mentally fatigued and needs to look away for a rest. <br />
Many years ago, Margaret Thatcher (ex prime minister of the UK) apparently had lessons on how to talk to people and get their undivided attention. She was instructed to look constantly at the person she was talking to; something that can be intimidating, because it is a very 'alpha' thing to do.
Because when people lie their pupils dilate . Maybe they didn't want you to catch them lying. Or maybe they felt intimidated by you getting in their personal space.
I don't know, but that bugs the crap out of me. When I'm talking to people I like to look them in the eye. So many people seem to shy away from that.
Seriously? Well some people are hiding what they are thinking. Other people are trying to cover up feeling shy.<br />
They've done studies that show that most people will look away after about 30 seconds of eye contact due to feeling intimidated. <br />
Police officers and lawyers often use long periods of eye contact to try to determine if a person is lying to them.<br />
Just remember that a good friend will give you lots of eye contact, smiles, and conversation. CHERISH THAT FRIEND!
I don't like looking in people's eyes, I feel as though it will give things away that I don't want to give away, but then I'm one of those people that puts on a smile when inside I'm crying, I'm terrified of people in my life asking about it, and I've always thought eyes were the windows to the soul, that if people look in my eyes they'll see how sad I am inside and then won't want to know me.
Most people don't like it because they find it intimidating, this being the case then what have they got to hide?
Sometimes there's a certain timing or natural flow to looking at people in the eye. If you stare too long or other, people might take it the wrong way. <br />
This is something I'm working on too, natural flow of eye contact.
It must be those glasses,they look so funny,lol
