It seems that most people believe that an inability to maintain eye contact indicates shyness, insincerity, shame, or lack of confidence.
Is it weird that eye contact feels extremely intense to me? It's like a staring contest with the sun. I get a rush of emotions that I'm really uncomfortable with unless I'm head over heals in love the person. I suddenly feel like we're looking into each others souls and I have to break away. For me, maintaining eye contact for more then 2 seconds is reserved for intimate relationships.
How are you at maintaining eye contact?
