I don't hold my eyes open wide enough Watch

    Ok, maybe this sounds stupid..

    I used to have sleepy looking eyes.. it looks a bit like i'm stoned. then one of my ex girlfriends told me "hold your eyes open wider, it makes you better looking" so i did and managed to learn to do it with no problem.

    Then at some point I just stopped doing it.. and it's gone back to me looking a little stoned the whole time. Are there any tips to making myself hold them open and looking normal?

    (it's especially bad when i get drunk.. they turn into tiny slits)

    lol. while i have no proper input, i can tell you its better then having ONE lazy eye, like my case! when im even the slightest bit sleepy one eye is shut much more then the other.

    As a girl, make up is the answer in most times. but for a guy i really don't know..

    You just need to tell her to remind you when you are doing it..My eyes used to wander in opposite directions when I was talking to my girlfriend. Every time I did it she told me about it and it soon stopped

    Hah, one of my uni mates does this. He has a damn good-looking girlfriend though so it's clearly not done him any harm!

    Apply white eye liner to your waterline. It will make your eyes look wider open without any efffort.

    Ooooh I have this! Although I have more of a problem with it wandering all the time (happens all the time, whether I'm sleepy or not) because that is more freaky to other people :o:

    I find sleepy stoner eyes quite attractive. I know that's no real answer to anything you've asked, but I have no better contribution to make. Also I found myself holding my eyes open really wide while reading through this thread...

    I have the same thing, I looked stoned all the time, it's got me in trouble an' everyfing.
    My optician said if it was really pissing me off I could get surgery on the NHS, so talk to your optician about it, see what they can do.
