how to tell if you're making enough eye contact

i think i avoid eye contact a lot without even realising it cos i'm pretty awkward and socially anxious. but i'm trying to get more comfortable in social situations and make people feel more at ease around me as well. how can i tell if i'm making a good amount of eye contact without staring? i'm worried about making people feel uncomfortable by suddenly holding way too much eye contact
lol sorry all this make me sound like a robot, i think i'm overthinking everything now aghh

I personally think maintaining eye contact with consistence is a brilliant thing. This shows your confidence and maturity. It also impresses girls. Do not do it until it becomes creepy, but do it with innocence, and no one will even accuse you of making them uncomfortable.

thanks! yeah that's a good point that intentions matter. i'm a girl as well, so hopefully i won't intimidate/ creep people out with eye contact anyway haha. i might just come across as even weirder if i started staring tho

For me, I just did it a few times until a got more confident and then I stopped thinking about it because it was natural. There is no perfect amount of eye contact. At first though you will likely creep people out because you will do it too much.
