    I hate making eye contact.
    It stresses me out.
    And most people have this stressing look on their eyes, there are very few people with a nice/pleasant look on their faces.

    When I look people in the eye, it always feels to me as if they are evaluating me or something, and it doesn't feel good.

    I don't like it in general. Usually fairly comfortable conversing with someone I don't know too well but eye contact is pretty uncomfortable at first.

    Because you're intimidated by their awesomeness? It's ok I understand

    Do you have autism/ aspergers syndrome? I do and I feel the same way as you do most of the time, unless its someone I really fancy in which case I will stare intently into their eyeballs until they are sure I want to murder them

    I find it quite easy now, most people are uncomfortable with it which just makes me feel more in control of the situation

    Because you're insecure and have no self esteem, you feel inferior thus the inability to look in eyes.

    No, I don't have this problem.

    I'm the same, but I think it's because I associate eye contact with kissing, it's just too intimate. Also, they say the eyes are the window to the soul, so I don't like people being able to know what I'm thinking by looking at my eyes.

    I am taking anti - depressants , but I feel they numb my feelings , I feel like a zombie with them , like I don't experience life.

    So I stopped taking them without telling my parents...

    I also espeically hate looking at other guy's eyes.
    Because it feels intimate and almost sexual to me to make eye contact.

    So I prefer doing it with women.
    Because making eye contact with other males feel just weird to me.

    I am not a homo , I am straight.
