    My eyes burn when I look into someone's eyes who are not my close family. It's mainly teachers but also even friends 😳 it probably looks like I'm crying or trying not to sneeze :P
    Anyone else?

    Used to be me last year but that's because I was really shy.

    What about close friends? Do you still get the burning feeling then?

    I struggle with this too but it could be things like anxiety. I get uncomfortable when looking at people's eyes and I find it hard to do but I've recently learn't this trick of looking in between peoples eyebrows. It makes you look more confident and they don't notice!! 😊

    With close friends probably the first 10 minutes of meeting- yeah, it's probs cause I'm shy. Il just have to practice looking into people's eyes haha

    But I guess a lot of people struggle with this too...

    No. Not as serious as OP. Just found it hard to make eye contact if I wasn't close to the person.

    A lot of the teachers thought I was being rude :curious:

    Teachers :nah: lol this one time I was like 11 and I was taught to say "excuse me?" instead of "huh?" as I normally would lol
    And so my teacher said something, I said "excuse me?" and she goes "yes...excuse you." Then put me on "time out."

    Weird.
    Anyway lol do you have social anxiety or something? :\

    She probably thought you meant it in a mean way :lol:

    Used to. It was stupid since I was scared to even talk sometimes coz I thought people would start analysing how my voice sounded like.

    Had that and other things but I'm fine now.

    Sometimes when I'm on the bus people who really stink come on the bus most of the time from cigarettes or alcohol and my eyes water then. My eyes also water when I'm laughing and sometimes when I sneeze I get sudden shock tears.
