    I've always had these confused feelings about eye contact. I mean strangers, like girls who are the same age (give or take a few years) but you don't know them- or boys for you girls.

    Now, I'm quite good looking (my mom says I'm beautiful :yep:), having been told by a few girls etc etc. My question is, I don't quite get what it means when you lock eyes with another girl when walking towards each other. I mean, for about 5 seconds then you turn away. I only lock eye contact, really, with good looking girls but I don't know why?

    So, therefore, why do we lock eyes with each other? It confuses me really as I'm not sure what you can gain from it, but we all do it? And what does it really mean?

    Sorry for the downright strange thread, replies appreciated!

    Yeah, I read this. But people didn't say why, just people's thoughts on it?

    I tend to think eye contact with a smile or embarassed look away = person finds you attractive (thats what i end up doing anyway)


    I cant deal with eye contact, especially on my way home i see the same people every day, i cant deal with the eye contact/ no eye contact deal XD
