#2 “if I were a guy”: look at me dammit.
I continued to talk to the same “cutie with the eyes,” and sadly found more points on how I would woo me better.
I know a lot of us are shy as hell around people we find intimidating, attractive, or someone we like, but there is a certain point where you should at the very least try to have a few lingering stares amidst the conversation.
So “cutie with the eyes” and I were talking. He appeared either nervous or just clueless, and we were having a conversation while sitting beside each other, but we never made eye contact.
So here is what I would have done as the guy nervous as hell to maintain eye contact:
• face your fears. Attempt to make eye contact at the very least.
• stare into the person’s eyes for a few seconds at a time to get acclimated to it.
• get up the guts to just admit that you need a little help because you can’t seem to maintain eye contact even when you want to because you’re so nervous.
• challenge the person to a staring contest. You must stare into their eyes to know when they blink.
Hopefully a guy who can’t seem to maintain eye contact can benefit from these tips. The staring contest would be a sure fire way to create a more relaxed playful competitive vibe.
Not maintaining eye contact could be one of the reasons she doesn’t go on a date with you, or doesn’t even choose to remain friends.
