    I read in a body language book that people who just want to be friends use the "Social zone" alternates from eye > other eye > Forehead in a sort of triangle.
    People who want more than friendship go from eye > other eye > lips.

    Personally I think this is bull
    Usually I look into their eyes, then to any other defining features. Sometimes I look at their lips if I'm having difficulty hearing them.

    I sort of look at their face as a whole but it's usually the eyes or mouth. :ninja: I feel really awkward not knowing what people are looking at when they talk to me though.

    Really? Seems like the book is more "on the mark" then I gave it credit for
    Oh, there was another zone that was pretty much the "We should go to the bedroom..." look that goes:
    Eye > other eye > downstairs fun zone

    Please tell me you don't do the same :p:

    I tend to focus on their tits when I digress from that I move to mouth/lips and then finally eyes - eyes tell a lot, especially if one is lonely, content, discontent - thats when comfort zone CAN kick in and talking becomes vice versa.

    I only talk to women... tell a lie, men I look away from and TRY to listen if it's interesting.

    when you are looking at there face

    For example, I alanlyse their skin, hairline, wrinkles, marks, freckles etc..etc...thats all I do..I hardly listen to what they are saying..I just analyse their appearance

    I have always been obseessed with skin as I had bad acne since 12 years old....SO mayeb this is why or do others do this

    I mean when you are looking at someone to talk to them you must be aware and concetrating on their face so therefore seeing and analysing these things

    Or do yo just tlak to them and listen to waht they are saying and not pay much attention to there appearance unless there is something really weird like a huge hairy wart or horrendous acne or something?
    You're a freak.

    Next?

    haha can't say I do. I think that zone is a bit too hard to disguise without looking like a perv...

    Well that plus "straight to the bedroom" isn't my thing.
